My Mom had the most beautiful roses arranged on the kitchen table when I was home for Memorial Day Weekend. They were all the color of the middle two roses. I took this shot at night when only the kitchen light was shining down on them, which resulted in the dramatic lighting and black background.
Since my focus was on the two center roses, I decided to desaturate the rest to make those two stand out even more. Unadulterated, all of the roses would like like the center two.
Maybe I'll post pictures of flowers all week, even though I generally find flower shots to be pretty banal.
