Days of Whine And Roses

This post is for Emma and Gary who said they liked “natural” and “red” roses. And the title is a nod to Emma's very cool titles.

These two scenes were also in the garden exhibit at the fair. It was a little hard to get photos in there since there were people all around but they were too beautiful to pass up. I posted the original of both versions with no processing (other than the watermark and the second photos was cropped tighter).

The selective coloring in #2 - I wanted to highlight the red roses and “get rid” of the flowers in the lower left but not lose the background.

The Orton effect in #4 was to give it a dream like quality.
