Colorized Rose

I never know when I start playing with an image exactly where it will end up. At times I have a clear idea of what I want to do and at other times I allow experimentation to lead the way. Experimenting gave me the results on this image.

I first used the darken/lighten Nik filter to deepen the shadows in the background. I then applied the brilliance/warmth filter to increase the detail on the rose. I applied the old photo filter and reduced the opacity of the layer to 67 percent allowing the color below to peak through. This gave the effect of an old colorized photo. The last step was to apply the polaroid transfer filter to rough up the edges.
