I like the strong contrast between the red and the turquoise/green. When I went to the VanGogh exhibit some months ago, I noticed that he used turquoise as a background for some of his flower paintings.
Taken at Longwood Gardens. Processed in Elements 10, basic adjustments, plus: High Pass for flower, Color Efex Pro: Darken/Lighten Center, Topaz Adjust: Exposure Correction. Used textures: "Blue Door" by Anita (me), "Blutopia" by Shadowhouse Creations , "Turquoise Bokeh" by pareeerica, "Robin's Egg" by French Kiss, and
"I Do" by Sterling Silverr . I think I just kept adding textures until I got the background I wanted.
