First of all wow. I am a professional gardener and rose lover and this is stunning. Roses are so delicately intricate and perfect and I rarely see a photograph which does them any justice. You have captured this rose in all it's full delicate and intricate beauty. The bloom is at its most perfect moment and you have captured its silky perfection. It could almost be a glass or silk rose it is so perfect. I love the colour effect and it leaves you open to changing its colour to purest love white or deep passionate red etc. The clarity and sharpness are wonderful without losing the sense of silky softness and and the close up shot allows for seeing all the delicate detail without the common mistake of over exposure or else blurring of the fine detail. Not so much a critique as a standing ovation but how do you critique something which you deem to be perfect except to acknowledge it. Perfect rose, perfect picture!
What do you think?

Thank you so much for including me in your lovely feature. I couldn't believe either how well a simple point and shoot camera was able to focus so well that day. I had some overhead lighting from a ceiling lamp which must have helped to create the glow effect and pull out the tiny vines. Our dining room table is black that I had these roses sitting on which also must have helped pulled in more light from underneath..I probably couldn't do it a gain ever..just one of those beginners lucks shots. :)

Thank you...the rose was actually red, so I had to do a lot of curves and layers..I had it sitting under the light of my dining room table when I shot it. The point and shoot camera I shot it with is better than the macro lens on my Rebel. All my close-ups I take with it, it gets really nice detail.

I love the way you have captured the texture of the petals. That is rare in photographing roses, to my experience, but so beautiful. It makes them look like skin.

Wow, the way you captured the textures of the petals is really impressive, I haven't seen a shot like that. It's alarming how much it looks like human skin.

Like porcelain and silk, ivory and marble, but more beautiful than Rodin; it's nature's precious invention, and you captured it perfectly. :heart:
