I spent most of the weekend chopping down all the overgrown shrubs from my garden and
found this dwarf Rose hidden amongst it's giant cousins.Another bonus is my pond is now twice the size...amazing how fast things get overgrown.
This is a double upload as I was going to go with the 2nd one as I thought the background in the 1st was distracting but then thought I had cropped too much.......I can never make decisions and when I do it's always the wrong one.!!
I hope between the 2 you might like the flower.

Decisions decisions eh? I like both versions. The crop in V2 is a little close and you could always have darkened the bg in V1. The shot of the flower itself has excellent light and detail with lovely raindrops. If I had to choose I would go for V1 with darker bg but thats just me.

Thanks for looking......

Barbara....RAIN...no options round here...hammering down at the moment...and it looks like the same for at least another 5 days after as well...the Test Match is here !!!!!!
Paul.....I tried darkening it and ended up with a solid black so cropped as I thought it was a waste.....then went in TOO close.

Cheers,
Keith

Beautifully photographed, Keith!

Great focus, exposure control and processing. Well done indeed!

Both versions work really well, although I think I'm leaning more towards V2 for the extra detail. The crop is a little tight, though.

Paul's mod is pretty cool, although he couldn't have done it without a cracking shot to start with!

Bill

Another stunning image, Keith, cracking detail, especially large. Has to be V1 for me, I think it's a bit too tight in the frame in V2...and as above, love the water droplets. Excellent.

These are both truly beautiful images of this lovely little rose. Though tight, I don't find the crop in V2 any problem, neither do I find the bg in V1 a problem either. The mod was indeed interesting, but not in the least better than your already 1st class image. Oh, and yep, I too am being driven a little loopy with how slow the site is at present!

I was looking at V1 and thinking I might have cropped a little closer then found V2 and have to say I like it far better the surrounding area in V1 is doing nothing for the final picture - V2 love it and wouldnt change a thing V1 I definitely think a further crop was necessary - final decision V2 heheh!
