This is not a real rose - it's a silk rose very dark red in color. A Topaz Studio preset was used to hide that fact - however in the upper center of the rose there is a petal with a number of lines in it that I left in to give away the secret. Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments and votes.

Had a feeling this was a fake rose, it was too perfect. Nicely done anyway.

Fits the bill. Love the deep red. I can almost smell it.

This is more low key, imo than some of the other flowers. Mostly darks with a few highlights and things disappearing into the shadows.

I think the light, perfection of the rose, drama of the colors are all excellent. I'm a fan of painterly filters but for some reason I think this might have been better before you applied it. Voted days ago . . . back to comment on a few.
