This is one that may be enhanced with selective colouriztion.
If only the roses were left red and the rest of the image changed to duo tone or mono tone it might look interesting.

Just a thought.

@J.Scott - Thanks . I played around with selective color but the result look very plain to me =[ . I wanted a more dramatic feel to the picture but at the same time I don't want to make it look too over process .

@wshi - Thank you =]

@Oddity96 - Yea , it was really sad considering during V-day these would probably go for $100 + . such a waste .

A remarkably simple yet effective image - the presence of OOF trash around it suggests that something has happened and your left to imagine the possibilities.

I don't know if selective colour would help BTW - I like it as it is.

Thanks for sharing

I REALLY like it but it seems a little to "green" -- see if you can balance it more towards magenta.
