I spend some time with working on these beautiful rose shots I made and I found the red rose also looked very special in dark blue. So here is a variation in that color scheme which makes the drops looking like precious crystals.

You can find the original colored rose on my photo account ~Viliggoly: [link] and here: [link]

About the rose:

Some people asked me what breed these roses are and I said I would ask my neighbour. So I did but unfortunately she didn't know what sort this is. They grow in their garden since 30 years she said and this year they are so beautiful like never before. The original color is a deep bordeaux red with a touch of purple, first of all when the bud is young. And wow, they smell incredible!!!!

Made with Canon EOS 30D, edited in Photoshop CS3.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-08
The suggester says, "Crystal by `Lilyas is a really beautiful piece of art that really symbolizes its name, and the dewdrops really add a nice effect". ( Suggested by Unleashed-Fear and Featured by RockstarVanity )
It is well drawn and is simply magnificent to look at. Art is only beautiful when it is worked with a certain passion and I believe the passion is brought to life in this piece of art. It truly is wonderful. The originality of it is something else but add those drops of water and its magnificent all over again. The style is very pretty and skilled and the rose itself clashes wonderfully against the background. This must have taken you awhile. I hope that you dedicate yourself to the arts of art and that you shall create many mire beautiful pictures!

I love the metallic blue colour of the Rose, along with the adjusted lighting and contrast. Also love how you made the droplets look almost crystalline and glass-like, like frosted morning dew. Great work, totally worth a fav Pixel Rose +favlove
