Had this idea pop into my head and I'm pretty happy with the results although I suspect it may not do too well, particularly as this is the start of the DPL so everyone will be upping their game :) Reminds me a bit of the American Beauty Poster, although this is rather different in mood. I had a nice portrait style shot which I may post the outtake for later to see what people think.

Shot with a fairly simple setup, single hotlight + general ambient lighting. Processing was done by converting to a colour and B&W layer and picking though on the rose.

Thanks to my wonderful girlfriend for posing and putting up with my geeky photography urges :)

Nice. I think I would have liked it a little better if the leaves were still green, though.
