Thank You Bruce, You're welcome!
This photo of Yours is one of my favorites:
Double Delight can look that surreal, like Moonlight LCl (KORklemol) can look too. See one of my photos of that rose in the Rosarium of Winschoten. The link is in the next reply.

This photo is the one I bothered to comment on that it was the wrong rose and it looks photoshopped for added red and someone deleted my comment after commenting to me several times that my comment was wrong. What is the point of me bothering to post that the flower is wrong, if someone is just going to delete it. Why not make a policy that no matter how wrong it looks you can't complaint about it? Instead of inviting people to comment that they think it is wrong. My boyfriend totally agreed and he also said, the same thing, it's either photoshopped or wrong. It could be a very old style of camera like my old sony DSC-S75 cybershot, but I don't think so. I see over saturation of color like as in photoshop color enhancement.

We agree and comments are not usually deleted unless there is some sort of issue. We will look into this. Thank you for pointing this out.

Maybe I made a mistake and I just can't find that photo on which I commented on. I think that was the issue. I decided the rose is right, its just over saturated. I did look up color over saturation found a post.

Dear HMF Admin,
I am happy to remove the bloom in question, as it is causing quite a stir.
I do remember the bloom as a beauty, & probably a 1 in a life time. As we know, each plant produces lots of blooms in its life time, and although they look similar on each bush, they are all unique as well.
Please send me the information on how to delete the photo

Yours faithfully

Bruce Martin

Your post was never deleted as Patricia Routley pointed out earlier. The discussion ID is: 92-552
Just click on the Comments & Questions Tab above the photo and You'll find Your original post. The second from above.
And maybe Your answer is in the third post/comment about this rose at the bottom of the page. Discussion ID: 30-253

And to Bruce Martin I would say: Please keep the photo on HMF, For this rose can appear in surreal red once in a while... I like it when the range in colors of the flowers is shown on HMF.
And yes: Although a variety shows the same rose every time it flowers, still there is some variation and as You pointed out correctly: Every flower is unique!

(Btw: Some digital photo-camera's are having troubles to shoot a correct red.
For that You don't have to photoshop!)

Nostalgie can behave the same as Double Delight does... And though the photo looks photo-shopped, it hasn't been altered and the flower looked in real-life this way too in full midday sunlight.

This looks photoshopped for more red.

This is the first (2008) photo of 'Double Delight' that Bruce contributed. It is of interest to look at his subsequent photos of this rose:

She was a beauty, for me, I don't see the point of photo shopping anything, because we are about what our gardens produce, not our IT skills (not that I have any). I can't explain it, except the red was that intense, that camera took that luminous color, which the bloom was. The same camera has taken all the rose photo's I've submitted, so I guess blame nature, if anyone.

Yours faithfully
