What a superb shot of this beautiful rose, Carol. The lighting is spot on, capturing the velvety petal textures so well. As you know, I do favour a black b/g for single blooms and this particular rose looks just marvellous against the black. I would have been so contented had I taken this one myself. Keep up the good work.

Beautiful Carol, but I'm perplexed as to how you can take a close-up such as this with that lens, mine is the 14-45mm., which doesn't seem as good as yours (judging by your shots and others I see on here), I've tried and failed miserably with mine, now I'm left wondering if it's just my incompetence!
