  1. Today is the birthday of a very dear friend - she's helped us through so many tough times! When I took her home from our b-day luncheon, she cut these roses for me. I'm trying to do something really special to them, I hope to give her a print. Anyway, this is what I've done thus far.........

    Version 1
    Version 2
  2. Both look great Dianne .... I think though I prefer the softness of #1. I'm sure she will love either one .....

  3. Thanks Bob! I'm thinking about putting a poem with it and then frame the whole thing in a shadow box frame. I like #1 too because of the coloration. Funny thing, I used flash and I can't hardly tell I had any lighting on it.

    I like the first one Dianne, the second feels cold.
  5. Thanks! I've already begun the 2nd stage of my creation - poetry that will be to the side of the rose and yep, I'm using #1. The more I play with ps the more I'm starting to really enjoy it!

    I like the first one...very nice.
  7. Thanks Seneca! I'm working on putting a poem with it, but my poetry skills are so rusty! I may have to cheat and find something written by someone else. Glad you liked it!
