Roses in monochrome

This is a different edit of a photo that I posted last week. After seeing Cee’s intriguing shots, I was inspired to join the One Four Challenge, in which participants show four different edits of the same photo over four weeks. Alternatively, you can decide to take four versions of the image at the time of shooting.

Here is the original below, which I posted last week. Funny thing is that I had also made several other edits to this image last week, with the intention of posting the alternate versions when I got around to it. So this challenge is the perfect motivation.

Roses and bud in sunshine
