While visiting my in laws I found this rose. It was almost to low to the ground to get a good shot. I think it came off ok.

Its a nice image, worthwhile getting down low to shoot it.

It can benefit with some more contrast, - it seems a little flat, - so a simple mod with contrast and a little sharpening has been upload as an example.

It's certainly a very pretty rose Bill. The colours are so delicate and the raindrops add that extra touch.

I think you have cut this rose out from its background as there are bits of green clinging to the edges of the petals. I have uploaded a mod where I have shaved off the green fringe using the clone tool.

It is always a challenge when photographing flowers in the garden to get a clean image without all the background distractions. One way to go about it is to put a white (or some other colour) background behind the flower. Another alternative is to shoot with a wide aperture to blur the background. This can be quite successful and it gives the idea of the flower in its natural surroundings. Cut out flowers often seem a bit "disconnected".

It can be frustrating to isolate the perfect flower but it is often worth the effort in getting a good composition.

Best wishes

Catherine
