Singular Softness

Singular Softness

THE PHOTO:
A Rose from the gradens of the Petit Trianon, part of the palace complex of Versailles, Paris.

POST PROCESSING:
The original shot was never very sharp as it was taken hand-held in a slight breeze, but this also enabled me to enhance the softness and concentrate more on the composition and separation of the leafy background. Crop, Sharpen, Vignette, Curves, Shadow/Highlight and a few more tweaks.
