A superb rose to have in the garden, Graham, benefitting from the sun of the last few days.
I like both versions but the black b/g in V 1 does allow the flowers to stand out even more effectively.
Lovely shot in every way.
Ronnie.

v1 does accentuate the blooms well, but I do like seeing them au naturelle as well, so a thanks from me for uploading both, Graham.

A gloriously colourful image of a beautiful Rose. The light is lovely and of course the black bg really lifts the colours out so well.

Looking over your portfolio and I see you've learned the
beauty of using a black b/g.
These roses stand out beautifully here and are ajoy to behold.
The light is catching them so well.
