I'm really enjoying this particular challenge. So much so that I went looking for a subject at a local Goodwill store. Here's what I found.

...then, when she wasn't looking, I went out in my wife's garden and cut a fresh rose.

I haven't yet headed to Goodwill, but I rushed home this afternoon to get a shot of the ice before it melted off the trees, not an everyday occurrence around here. Like you, I've been having fun with this challenge.

I really like your vase photo, and I wish you the best of health if you've been cutting roses without permission.

Very good Walter, I to would like to wish you good health!! The second shot looks like you used selective coloring on the rose. Neat effect!

Mugmar. Yes, I created a duplicate layer in PS and made it black & white. Then I erased the section over the rose to reveal its color. Thanks for the good wishes, which I send right back atcha.

The effects are very different, and both photos are striking. I might even like the B&W version better.

Your wife must be a very gracious and patient lady, since I see no bruises on your portrait.
