and still you blush prettily
wild summer rose

Good Morning and welcome to Week One of the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn G. at Captivate Me.
This week I took this photo of a rose, snapped on January 30th.
The first thing I did was to use a HDR filter to sharpen the photograph, the first attempt was too stark so I softened it a bit. Then I cropped the photograph removing the withered rose and a lot of sky. After that, with a touch up tool I removed the antenna in the background then used the focal b&w filter to bring out the rose and rendering the rest of the photo Black and White, as the sky is way too washed out.
I’m hoping to learn how to cut out that rose and part of the palm tree putting in some color into the sky in future … The photo was edited with Picasa 3 by Google.
