Some more roses from my garden, these ones sadly have almost finished flowering and being "old roses" only flower the once each season, but they more than make up for that with the abundance of blossom and wonderful fragrance.
I grew the bush from a cutting I'd appropriated from our local historic cemetery :-)
After my initial square crop and the tidying of a stray petal or two from the bottom I processed this fairly simply with...
Apple Blush from Tex Box 1 @ Soft light 100%
Colosseum Sienna from Tex Box 2 @ Soft Light 100%
I removed a little of the texture from the focus flower using a layer mask.
And tweaked the tone and saturation using curves and hue saturation layers.
