Another shot taken in the yard on my way out. Nothing special, but I like it. You tell me. Hoping I will be able to get out and take photos again pretty soon.

Hi Gene. This is certainly a beautiful rose and the water droplets really add to the interest. I find the shadows on the petals a bit distracting, but when you are in a hurry, it's a fact of life. The lower part of the rose is not in perfect focus, which is unfortunate, but the brilliant yellow color holds it together. My only suggestion would be to darken the bright spots in the background.

I agree with Ingrid... I found the out-of-focus on the forward petals to be a distraction too. But, the overall effect is great...   Posted: 05/14/2023 16:06:36

Gene, this is a beautiful yellow rose, and it stands out nicely because of your selection of a dark background. Also, it appears you brought the highlights down a tad to keep them from being blown out. Nice job!   Posted: 05/18/2023 15:46:05

I agree with Shirley regarding the out-of-focus issue. The concept is great with the water drops and the lighting. I like the colors as well.   Posted: 05/27/2023 15:50:51
