While this is not a drop dead awesome pic, it's not too bad for a first try at an HDR colorsplash. One of the shortcomings is that this one is a rush job. I snipped off a few buds from our neighbors' rosebush and put together a quick little arrangement. It also might look a little better if the black and white bud were positioned a little more to the left.
This is the idea I alluded to a couple days ago. Now I'll try a couple more shots and see what possibilities might be accomplished.
