Thanksgiving Rose in my front yard


Amazing!   Even at Thanksgiving, roses are still blooming in my front yard.   As I recall, some bloomed every month of the prior year.

I’ve been working on this technique for several months.   It’s a combination of Lightroom for getting the photograph tuned, Corel Painter to fashion the image, and Photoshop to fine tune the final image.   I’m really excited how well this turned out.   All the planets must have been aligned just the right way.  Click image for larger view.
