Decided to expand upon the earlier roses post and include some different images. Am trying to use every rose to the fullest advantage. Am using a few props, a bit of inspiration from others, and just trying to make these simple flowers appear as nicely as possible. Have a "bakers dozen." 13 images to view. A bit much in length yet the images are very nice. Quite a few monochrome examples also.
Simply Roses I
Thought this made a nice monochrome. Used a small discarded perfume bottle with water to moisten the petals. I really like the look.
Simply Roses II
Captured this in a darker light. Was only able to gather six roses so had to try every bit of processing each specimen.
Simply Roses III
So very beautiful. I love photography.
Simply Roses IV
Another monochrome. Am getting very interested in monochrome as time passes. There are so many facets to the images that aren't available using color.
Simply Roses V
Am going to post a baker's dozen of these images. Worked very hard to get them to look nice. The bouquet was expensive also.
Simply Roses VI
Simply Roses VII
Back to monochrome. There are more images to make thirteen, yet it is time for me to sleep. And I also have another Lon's Chili blog to ready. Yaaay! I am using a post-processing program named G.I.M.P. to put these images together. To heal all of the flaws that might mar the appearance of the flowers.

Simply Roses IX
Simply Roses X
These certainly are pretty rose images. Today, 27 January 2017, I decided to go through some of my earlier post, and am reminded of these beautiful roses
Simply Roses XI
Pink roses traditionally are given to express gratitude and appreciation. A way to say thanks. A lady receives them as a token of her grace and elegance. I think this is why pink is mostly referred as a feminine color. Is because gals are graceful and elegant, each in her own ways
Simply Roses XII
This particular image is probably the more favorite of my own of the images displayed in color included in this post. Sure is a striking color of pink to me.
Simply Roses XIV
Of the monochrome images I have included in this post, Simply Roses 14, my baker's dozen spare, is certainly my more favorite of the monochromes.
