Taken in my inlaws rose garden. Im sure this picture won't do well in an Expert Editing free study challenge, but I like it none the less.

Cropped, sharpened, made the rose more rosey, and the leaves greener, cloned out some wilting parts of the flower, some half eaten leaves, and a pole that was on the right side of the picture. Added border, resized, and saved for web.

Very nice detailed rose. I like how nothing is blown out. Well done.

Bad lighting and too much saturation pushing.

A rose, hmm and I hate to say it, but it's beauty has escaped it. It's oversaturated and too bright, which kills the tonal range and the detail.

seems a bit stark, over saturated a bit

I like the definitions of the petals. The red border spoils it in this case, though.

Too much contrast for my liking.
