    A Rose.

    Any comments re processing.

    The soft feel is intentional.

    Original Image:

    A Rose.

    After:


    A Rose.

    Thanks

    OHH, both are nice. I prefer the more dramatic first photo. Just personal --

    Very nice photo but I think I agree with Gretchen. The original version has a soft feel but at the same time has more impact.

    after contemplating it for .0000025 seconds, I agree with the rest. The first one is nicer.

    Lovely images. I think the first image feels softer due to the depth of colour compared to the second. That said the second image, which I think has a little more clarity, is also very striking so depending on what you intentions are and how you frame each of them for me they are both very good. If I personally had to choose one, it would be the second as I like the slightly increased contrast/clarity. How did you shoot the image?

    Two different and equally valid images, both great to look at. I'd frame them and hang them side by side
