The roses in the garden are starting to look slightly bedraggled as they near the end of their season, it being autumn here in the southern hemisphere. The clocks went back this past weekend so I guess it won’t be long till we get a frost. I don’t mind autumn, the golden light at this time of the year is always a bonus if you’re a photographer.
This photo was taken a month or so ago when the roses, Cecile Brunner in fact, were still looking comely, I used the lensbaby composer with a macro attachment, it combined with textures really help give a dreamy and painterly effect.
So the processing.
Ambrosia @ overlay 71% desaturated using hue saturation adjustment
Gertrude Jekyll @ soft light 62% and masked from the focus flowers.
And that was it….sometimes the easiest processing gives the best results. *notes to self to try this recipe again soon *
Both textures are from the Autumn Painterly pack
