[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this rose in Vienna. I didn't like the background and the other much smaller rose that was to be seen in the original version of the photo I took. I tried an experiment in "PhotoImpactXL". I used the lasso-tool and tried to cut out the rose. Then I changed the background to a very dark green and put the rose onto it.
It is the first time I tried something like that. And at most of the petals I think it worked out, there are only some parts were I didn't work precisely enough - at least I think so.
I don't think that this is a masterpiece of post processing, but I also think that it is good enough to be shown here.
If you think something different let me know it. Thanks

Hallo Britta,
Eine wundervolle rose.
Sehr gute Kontrast und Scharf. Bravo.

Hallo Britta,
Lovely flower, it has nice colour. Well composed one with good details. Perhaps next time, you could take a sharper photo or work for it a bit with photoshop, but never mind, beautiful shot! Its dark backgroud fits to this light pink rose very well. TFS.
Best regards,
