    Thumbs up Re: Last weeks roses

    Derek the colours and texture are excellent for the wilted rose.

    I wasn't happy withe textured background and the stem on one plant had gone a bit strange in the export so I fiddled with it a little.

    I liked the textured background, but the new background is really better.

    Great picture!

    Thanks for all the comments. One last modification was to add a texture overlay with contrast linear transparency to 'grung' it up a little. Gives it the appearance of being viewed through a grubby window.
    I was quite happy with this one.

    Looks beautiful, the extra definition (or grunginess), you've added works well.

    Regards
