Vintage Rose

Vintage Rose

Well, it's been a busy couple of weeks and I've been wanting to get back to my photos but haven't had a chance until now. This was shot at Windsor Castle in May.

I had a discussion just today with a friend about where photography crosses the line to art, and how each photographer starts to develop his own vision and style in post-processing. I could have posted this in a more straight-forward--and more colorful--version, but I've been enjoying playing around with actions to see the different variations of interpretations I can achieve with my images. So, this rose has ended up with a more vintage, desaturated look. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't... one thing is for certain, we each have our own tastes in what appeals to our eyes.
