A rose by any other colour

One of the Blarney Castle roses.
The original was very saturated and detail was lost in the bright red of the petals. Making a monochrome image made the detail stand out and drops became visible again.
A little dodge and burn to finish.

Red Blarney Roses

While out with Matt this fine morning we walked over to Blarney Castle. Just inside the railings are some beautiful red roses. I just had to take advantage of the beautifulsunshine and snap off a few shots!
Photo was desaturated, and the red and yellow channels were restored afterwards to isolate the lovely colour of the flowers.

The Gardener’s House

A house in Blarney we spotted while out walking the other day.
