Sepia Scenes: A Rose By Any Other Color ...

This is another rose from the same arrangement as the red rose in the Ruby Tuesday post below. I included the original too - I don't really like the 'too peachy' color of the original.




And to complete my rose series I posted a black and white version over at - THE WORLD IN BLACK AND WHITE. I can always hear my buddy Dot saying - "wonder what that would look like in black and white."

Take a moment to check out more SEPIA SCENES

bobbie said...

Just gorgeous! I do think I like the deep, dark red the best though.

Jan said...

It seems like every photo I look at these days I ask the same question. No matter how colorful it is, I always wonder "What would that look like in B&W?"

Nice choice for sepia. Simple, elegant and timeless.

Robin said...

In sepia it almost looks like a white rose. Lovely.

Dianne said...

mojo - I've always been a fan of B&W so I know exactly what you mean
glad you like my rose

robin - it does! and white roses are my favorite :)

Carletta said...

I love the sepia. I like the original too but sepia looks so romantic. :)
I'm going over to check out the black and white.

Rose said...

I think I like this best in sepia though I did go look at the B&W--a tough choice if I was actually voting. But I do think the sepia wins just by a hair.

This rose looks good both ways, Dianne, But I think I prefer the sepia one.

Another gorgeous rose, Dianne! I like the sepia one a lot better than "peach/orange" one! :)

Babs (Beetle) said...

Oh that is beautiful in sepia! Much nicer :O)

i like the sepia tone on the top photo. it looks more toned down and calm ...

thanks for visiting and commenting on my JAGAT FOTOGRAFI blog the other day.

both of them are uniquely beautiful!

JewWishes said...

They are both lovely in their own way. I like how the sepia gives the rose a very vintage look.

Dianne said...

carletta - it is romantic! :)

rose - I think so too :) the sepia is warmer

EG - sepia appears to be the winner :)

mary - the good thing is that the peach lent itself best to sepia. I tried sepia on the red and it was awful. and on a white rose I couldn't get the warm effect. but yeah - I really don't like the peachy rose.

babs - thanks!!

sherrie - this entire arrangement was one of the prettiest I've ever seen, I'm so glad I took shots of it

jackie - thanks :)

eki - exactly! the peach is too harsh. thanks for visiting me too :)

magiceye - thank you :)

JewWishes - that's my favorite thing about sepia :)

Sepia gives that photo that something 'extra' !
A kind of romantic feeling ...
Have a nice weekend !

Lovely warm tinting for the orange rose, especially since orange doesn't have that much contrast in B & W.

How intriguing to see the various versions of this rose ... makes me want to do some experimentations on MY roses too.
Hugs and blessings,
