This rose had already faded but still had a beauty of its own.
Tried out different lighting and camera settings. This is just how it came from the camera, slightly cropped and a border added

Love the tones and lighting on this. Compositionally I dont think it is as strong as it could be though as the rose is a apearing in the centre of the shot, I would like to see a bit more space to the right and bottom for the rose to "look" in to if you see what I mean.

Well taken.

Thanks for looking and all your nice comments. They are all much appreciated.
Thanks Pete(Foggytwo) for your support.
Chris thanks for your comments on the composition - I tried lots of different crops and this one seemed to work best because of the leaves.

Sorry, Peter (jaktis) I don't really understand your question.
It is a dying rose flower and leaves cut from an indoor rose bush, placed on a piece of card, lit with spot-lights and photographed. Hope this helps
