This rose was lit by natural light coming thru the back door ... I had set up the kitchen like a studio .... black velvet draped everywhere, no-one could get in or out ..lol ... tiny ktichen you see, no room to swing the proverbial cat and all that. Daylight was very dark to say the least so living room window just was not an option, but I like this because it looks like it is lit up inside .... almost like a torch light - to me anyway. It lost a great deal of perzazz when I resized it so ran it through sharpening again, hoping I havent overdone it! Hope you guys like it too! Thanks to all for all the fantastic and encouraging comments of late and for my last 2 that had RC's. I was thrilled to bits! Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by and looking!

Isn't is a performance when you haven't got a dedicated studio? lol At least I can use my daughter's bedroom now.

I would love to see this larger, looks great against the black velvet.

Beautiful flower very well presented and so sharp. The black background compliments the rose so very well. Like the water droplets.

To start off...yellow roses are my favorite!!!! So, I automatically adore this photograph. The delicate drops of water add so much intensity to the photograph...
