Pink Rose

Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 26 October 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Continuing my exploration of softer images. Taken at Longwood Gardens last week. Thank you to FireDance for free texture, which I applied 4 times using different blending modes.
I welcome constructive critique: what do you like? what could be improved?
Thank you!

I like this exploration of the softer side. I think the dreamy, delicate presentation works so well with this subject. There is an emotional resonance here, with the pale pink rose seeming to reach out toward the viewer, offering love and hope. Beautiful.
