I thought this rose was perfect but I see the camera has picked out imperfections that had escaped me. However I thought the result was still worth a viewing.......perhaps you will not agree.

My thanks as ever for the CandC's on The Fall........PCP Style.

Ronnie.

Well it is almost perfect but in your hands the detail in those petals is superb.
We had a judge at CC last night who said he would clone out any imperfections.

Little in life is perfect Ronnie, everything has a little flaw, but we can try to be perfect without being obsessive about it. Perfection often comes with other problems, I've found.

A beautiful Rose and I must get back to doing some more close images.
