As in, just the rose. I was trying out a technique I've read about but never tried, and just wanted to give it a go. First, the image...



One of my Dad's roses in our front yard. It was lit with sun (duh) and an Alien Bee 1600 powered by a Vagabond. What I wanted to try was shooting it with tungsten film and putting an orange conversion gel over the light to make the rose look normal, but everything else cool in color. There was a tree in the background, and you can see that the leaves in the background look at least a little cooler, but silly me, I was shooting late in the day when the color temp is low anyway, so the effect isn't as pronounced as I would've liked... And the strobe light falling on the rose made up only 70% of the exposure, which is also probably why the effect isn't as pronounced as it could be, I'm guessing... But anyways, the colors are still "off", which makes the image look a bit surreal to me, which is why I still kinda like it (other than a few spots on the petals being a little hot for my taste). But anyways, just wanted to share.

Technical info:
Camera - NIkon F4s
Film - Kodak Portra 100T
Lit with Alien Bee 1600 (w/Vagabond) overhead, bare bulb, covered with an orange conversion gel
f16 @ 1/250 (I believe the ambient light was 1/2 stop less than the flash)

Interesting - rather lovely, whether you got the effect you were after or not.
