The Abraham Darby has bloomed
The "Abraham Darby" (a David Austen rose) has bloomed for the first time this year. I'm always intrigued by its ruffly petals that remind me of an old painting. So I tried my hand at making the photograph look more like a painting in Photoshop by using a texture, erasing the texture strategically, and then adding in highlights sparingly.
