Number seven in the series of Magical Roses is coming to you: The White Rose! This time no water droplets on it.

This is not my best picture and maybe you won't believe it but this was the hardest of all picture editings I have ever done!!! You all know this rose is deep red colored in original and I had to take away all the color without losing depth and contrasts. No, people, you don't want to know how I have done it! I just recommend to everyone of you: If you want to have a white rose take a picture of a white rose!!! I was close to give up and selecting a photo of a real white rose instead. But I really wanted it to be the same beautiful rose as in the other images which is to me the most beautiful rose ever. :heart:

+ + + A T T E N T I O N + + + A T T E N T I O N + + +

For all of you who wanted to know what breed this rose is: I FOUND IT OUT !!! Anyone else, too?

You can find the original colored rose on my photo account Viliggoly:… and here:…

The title is handwritten like in all other pieces of the rose series.

Hi I have added to my favourites and I was wondering, if you look at my profile I have a theme going called lyrical (… ) and I was wondring if I could use your image as a background to add some lyrics to and I would put credit to you for use of the image. I thought I'd be polite and ask first.

This white flower reminds me of a Dandaline. I think that's the name of the flower.

you can still see so much detail, and yet it's so bright, almost like it's glowing with it's own light. <3 wow.

Katy Perry shot fireworks from her chest witch made Usher scream "OMG" so loud that Rihanna became mentally retarted and then walked around saying "Whats My Name?". Well, Willow Smith became so annoyed she threatend to Whip Her Hair at Rihanna if she didn't stop. So Bruno Mars got so mad he threw a grenade at her. But then Ke$ha defending Willow, said We R Who We R! Eminem came in, saying 'I'm not afraid' , then Nelly woke up and said " it was just a dream!"
