"Brightest of the Bunch"

By RonnieAG
I thought this rose was perfect but I see the camera has picked out imperfections that had escaped me. However I thought the result was still worth a viewing.......perhaps you will not agree.

My thanks as ever for the CandC's on The Fall........PCP Style.

Well it is almost perfect but in your hands the detail in those petals is superb.
We had a judge at CC last night who said he would clone out any imperfections.

Well captured, Ronnie, beautiful textures.

It's good to stand out from the crowd and this rose does just that, good control on the whites well captured Ronnie. as per norm!!

It's lovely, slight blemishes et al! The details, tones and texture in the Rose are so well captured.

2 Nov 2012 10:51AM
good exposure control here Ronnie good cream/white with detail and texture looks like the dark side has imvaded the north this morning rather dreich to say the least

Little in life is perfect Ronnie, everything has a little flaw, but we can try to be perfect without being obsessive about it. Perfection often comes with other problems, I've found.

A beautiful Rose and I must get back to doing some more close images.
