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.

    Donncha, it’s really amazing. I like the tone. And of course, nice choice of post-processing method 🙂
