Rose.

This is part of a series of explorations based on a single image of a rose, all processed in black and white or nearly so.

This was done entirely using Curves in Affinity Photo by mangling the Luminosity channel in LAB mode, starting from a basic B&W version. If you add troughs in the Curves curve you easily produce solarised effects.

For this one I inverted the dark end of the curve, and then blended that with the original straightforward B&W layer with Overlay mode.

All spray-painted :)

Thank you for taking the time to look I hope you enjoy the image!

Rose.

This is part of a series of explorations based on a single image of a rose, all processed in black and white or nearly so.

This was done using Nik Color Efex three times: Glamour Glow twice followed by Classic Soft.

This one makes you appreciate the softness in the sense of the rose.

Thank you for taking the time to look I hope you enjoy the image!

Just a rose…

Unfortunately this isn’t one of my plants. I spotted it in beautiful bloom, leaning over the wall of a fellow villager. No, the rose, not me [sigh].

This is a straight colour image, but it forms the first in a set that I prepared for Sliders Sunday yesterday. Sadly I wasn’t able to publish the set then so that will have to wait until next Sunday. There are nine in the Petal Pack set currently which is rather a lot to publish at one go, in any case, so I’m putting up two today: this one and a monochrome, both unmangled.

I recently joined a self-help group for photographers that are addicted to whacking up the saturation and vibrance sliders. Ultimately the visual adrenalin zap does more harm than good so we need help. The group’s therapy task this week was to produce a set of sliders-zapped photographs with little or no colour, so that is what I did (I only slipped up once which you will eventually see).

There are eight of us in the group, and the whole environment is very supportive. The astute of you will readily guess that the other seven are imagined voices of mine, but at least I have more company now… ;)

I barely touched the saturation and vibrancy sliders or their proxies for this one. Promise :)

Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the image!

Rose.

This is part of a series of explorations based on a single image of a rose, all processed in black and white or nearly so.

This was done using Topaz Studio using the Simplify filter starting from the Cartoon I preset and then inverting it using Curves.

This is a favourite of the bunch. I like the glowing furnace look :)

Thank you for taking the time to look I hope you enjoy the image!

Just a rose, the same rose…

This is a straightforward monochrome version of the previously published image prepared using the current Nik Silver Efex filter with the Pinhole Camera preset as a starting point.

I have to say this is one of my favourites of the set, added grain and all. It has a real emphasis on the form of the rose petals, and the luscous light... I hope you enjoy it too :)

Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the image!
