I just finished editing some pictures taken on November 11.
I know this post is not at all Christmas related,but then,roses are always in season.
A dear friend of mine had roses delivered to my door,right around the time of the anniversary of Jake's passing.
First let me say I appreciated the roses for the message which they brought.,but I ask you,what is a woman with a camera to do when she gets roses in November?
All around outside everything is drab brown and grey.Roses bring colour,so it is time for a photo session.
Thanks Hannah for supplying the props,(roses).
Now I do believe that roses and pearls are a great match.
These orange/peach coloured roses were different than any I had seen before.
Look at all those petals.
I think turning the image into a sepia tone,shows the petals even better.
The yellow roses were the traditional florist roses.
They opened beautifully and lasted longer than any I have ever had.
I threw the last rose out at the two week mark.
The above rose is the same as the one below.
I think it looks quite dramatic in sepia tone.
I know that this photo is way over done,but I kind of like the gold look.
I added a warming filter in Lightroom
It is fun to play with the different effects.Some turn out good,but others are a total flop.Tell me whether you like this version.I would like to hear what you think.
Like I said,I kind of like it,but am not totally convinced.
I am sure that you will be seeing more of this bouquet of roses,as I took MANY pictures.
Because I know that these roses were given in love,this thought seems to fit:
The love you give to others
Is returned to you by the Lord - - -
And the love of God
Is your soul's rich reward.
