Stunning color & clarity on these three image renderings of this lovely deep plum, red, & gold flower. What type of flower is this, Carol? You have superb fine detail maintained on the center column & stamen of this flower with your Oly. Great work. Regards...Peter

I finally "looked" at your title,..."Rose". Very beautiful, although, at first the center of the flower did not strike me as a "typical Rose." Maybe, Carol, you may know the type or species of this lovely Rose? Very different & truly exotic-looking to me. Hope I get the opportunity to see & photograph one of these. PS: Thanks for your nice comment on my Oly SLR image. Regards...Peter

What a beautiful rose this is, Carol. In V 1 you have captured the rich colour and velvety texture of the petals so well, then In the extra close-up shots one can almost count the pollen grains, so excellent is the detail. Your Olympus E-510 working so well for you here. I truly lovely set.
Regards, Ronnie.

You have very well brought out the anatomy of the heart of rose without cutting it. The anther stalks look like blood vessels supplying the heart - Raja.
