    I see no EXIF, but beautiful, I would like to see it in color too. I'm not sure what I'm seeing in the pedals, is it a pattern? Love the layout.

    A magnificent portrait of a rose, brings out the softness and delicacy of the species. Deserves a fine print!

    Hi Willie! I get the feeling that this is a color image even though it looks monochrome. Is that because of the way it was processed?

    OK, I can't hold it in any longer. I've never seen a rose this delicate. If you would be so kind, in general terms, how was it processed?

    Hello, Frank. Much of the work is done in camera. I'd say 90% camera then 10% PP work. I used my DIY 12" softbox really up close to make the shot of the petals as soft as possible. The exposure was adjusted by adding only 1/3 EV extra and that's it. Processed the added softness using Calvin Hollywood's technique then straight conversion to B&W with some grain added. Hope this helps.

    To help you further, this is the colored shot:

    Gentle Curves.

    Can you imagine just falling backwards with your eyes closed and having that image softly catch you? Of your many great images, this one must rank highly. Bullseye, Willie!

    Many thanks, Scott for appreciating this. Just trying to learn to take a shot based on my vision of it and processed it on the PP accordingly.

    I've watched you improve steadily since I joined the forum in May and I must say that all of your hard work is paying off. This image and your F-curve. rendition of the violin are among my all-time favorites of images of common things seen in an uncommonly perfect vision.

    Thanks Willie!
