Took this photo of a Yellow Rose in our garden which as you can see is in bud.
Liked the shot and just added a frame.
Comments very welcome.
I like this, you have a good blurred background which is not distracting and a sharp flower in the foreground. Colours are strong and vibrant and the lighting is good and soft with no overexposed zones. If I may I would suggest trying a slightly smaller aperture (bigger f number) to try and boost the depth of field on the flower, as the out of focuse foreground in teh upper right side is distracting. However this does run the risk of losing or lessening the blurred background - experimentation and trying out different settings should let you find the "optimum" but if that fails you could have a try at photostacking (taking several shots of the same subject (both camera and subject being perfectly still and this in the same position in each shot) with different focusing points in each shot and then using layers and photoshop (or other program) and stacking on shot ontop of the other to get a greater depth of details whilst working with wider apertures.
Good shot and hope to see more
Nice colours in the rose and its background. I like your unusual border.
What a lovely presentation.
Thanks everyone for your comments, they are greatly appreciated.
Joe I think 'overread' above makes some good points. I don't know your skill level so I would recommend taking a number of images at different aperture settings and look for best detail in the flower but keeping the background blurred.
