"Burning Rose on a Stem" LHaRGB image - my first try at the Rosette. This image is LHa_HaRGB, where Ha:L (80:20) was used for Luminance, and Ha:R (80:20) was used for the Red channel. Lastly, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." - William Shakespeare
