rose l violet l manipulation

when should you not “leave well enough alone”?

i almost deleted this photo because it was the silhouette of a red rose against a blue sky, but there was no detail; the sky offered no interest to the viewer and the rose, well, except for a little corner of its bloom touched by the setting sun, was completely black. however, after an accidental change in its brightness quotient, a little tug on its tonality, pushing its sharpness and de-saturating its color, it ended up looking like this which i am quite happy with.
