This rose is SO difficult to get the right shade on -- impossible outside. To get even remotely close (which this is), I had to use a custom WB and softbox. The flash had a 1/4 blue gel, down to 1/2 power. And, it STILL isn't as dark red-purple as it is in real life. :mad: But, it poses well. :D

Thanks. After 2 1/2 hours and a frustrating time, THIS is the true color of the Mystique rose.
