Fun with Photography

Here's a before-and-after kind of thing.  This is a tiny Tequila Sunrise rose (the plant is no more than 6" high at this point) in my garden.  The blossom is beautiful, but the background is not great, so I've used some textures on it to make the background more harmonious.  Here's the original, SOOC (straight-out-of-the-camera):


And here's the one with textures on it:  



I wanted to enhance green in the background, so I used the following Flypaper Textures (and blend modes):  1)  Grosgrain (hard light), 2) Verdegris Mist (soft light), and 3) Florek Ice (color burn). 

I think the result does justice to my little flower . . .
