Umm I don't know exactly. Nik black and white conversion from Lightroom, then into PSE 18 and used the texture mode (I think it's in filter menu). I just slide the sliders until I like what I see.
Thanks for the winners - this is just about processing - can't claim to a great photo.Another edit of the clematis. Nik B & W, increased structure to try emphasise stamens, from Lightroom, large vignette using highlights, then tried to clone out some imperfections in the petals in PSE 18.
