Wordless Wednesday: Raspberry Ripple

SJudd_Gardens_Walled Garden_2015-05-31 15 - Version 3SM



  1. How much post-processing? I love the solitary sharp rose and the blurred background of other roses and column. Evocative of story in a way total sharpness could never be.

      Hi Meg! I used a large aperture to get the background out of focus in camera. I then used a blur vignette in Nik Color Efex to blur some of the foreground roses, and Voila! Job done.

  2. Nice one Sue. I take it that this is your favourite walled garden?
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. So beautiful Sue! 🙂

  4. Perfect! No other words touch it.

  5. Ooh yes. Lovely 🙂

  6. roses are my fave flower.

  7. That’s the name of the rose isn’t it? What a romantic image.

    • Sue

      Can’t remember the name of the rose – I was referring to the colours, raspberry ripple was an ice cream when I was little (very synthetic) and this image put me in mind of it!! 🙂

  8. And what a delicious raspberry ripple this is, for the memories and your gorgeous photo Sue 🙂

  9. This must be Italy too 😉 Fabulous choice of DoF!

  10. I love this! what a design, it just leads you right in and lets you wander the garden path! gorgeous colours and tones. very beautiful.

Over to you...
