Drooping Roses

dying rosesIf you place your valentine roses on the mantle and someone makes a hot fire in the fireplace, your roses just might bend down and die. Well, we live and learn!

I wanted to salvage something from our error, so I took several pictures of the poor sad flowers. Below is one I altered in Photoshop, using several steps including a filter to bring out the edges, inverting the colors in a duplicate layer, and experimenting with layer blending modes to get an effect that I like.
