Where The Wild Roses Grow

Spring brings with itself so many things that always amaze me again. For example the smell of roses. I get used to it during spring and summer, and once the roses disappear I stop thinking about the scents. Then spring comes around again and the red buds seem like a fresh discovery.

I applied a soft-look to the last image, since it goes well with roses and our notion of them. These roses are bright red, smell wonderful and make the green scenery complete.

This is the edited soft-focus image, I was taking about. I desaturated the colors slightly and added a selective blur to this. I like to finish it off with some digital grain. It gives film-look to your image. If you want I can make a tutorial for this technique.


I hope these red roses will brighten up your day. Thanks for visiting!

    1. I hope it will melt away soon. Then again, we haven't had any major snowfalls here this past winter.

  5. Pretty flowers and great images. How do you expose the red color properly? I have a hard time getting the exposure right.

    1. I try to focus for a middle tone, and then shoot. For the flower specifically that would be the petals.

  9. Stunning! Red roses are so beautiful. Ours won't be blooming for a couple of months yet. The cold snap we had I think may have killed a few of mine so I'll be needing to replace them.
    That wooded area looks like a wonderful place to while away some time.

  15. I've been thinking that our roses have deeper colours now as they are dying off but your shots make a nonsense of that notion. Beautiful.
