What d'ya think?

These roses are actually a picture of the red ones I posted last Monday that my husband gave me for my birthday. Sometimes when we have extra time at work, another coworker and I try to discover new techniques for altering photographs. Technically the only time we can use them is when we are working in the entertainment section of the paper, but it never hurts to keep learning. This rose photo was initially red, but I changed the color balance to bring out a deeper, satin sheen pink. Then I added a crosshatch filter to give it the shadowy, pencil or sketched look. The corners are a contoured bevel, with a drop shadow to the bottom left. So tell me, what do you think???

They look great, you did a fantastic job modifing the original. I don't have a clue how to do most of what you did. I just learned how to take a photo on my digital and upload it. Technology challenged is a pretty good desciptor of me, LOL.
