November Rose, Revisited

It’s lost some petals, but still lovely in decline.
Using Photoshop
The first thing I do with any image is make a levels adjustment, followed by a curves adjustment for contrast. Before applying a texture layer, I oversharpen the image just a bit, using the high pass sharpen filter. After that, it’s a bit of playing around with textures and blending modes until I like what I see. Often, I’ll use a black and white adjustment layer on soft light to enhance some of the detail.
