Wild Rose

By JohnoP
Shot a few weeks ago just before the cold weather hit. Taken in the hedgerows on a sunny afternoon. I want to try and vary the style and manipulation of my photos, and so I added the black background in photoshop, which I think makes the subject stand out.

John, that is so beautiful. I've uploaded many shots of flowers against a black background and none as good as this. Top quality...the lighting, composition and pin-sharp focusing all go to make this stand out from the crowd. 12/10

Think I would have passed the burn tool over those leaves, the almost burnt out look is a little distracting from what otherwise is a superb capture.

Still an RC's in order I reckon.. Smile

The light has brought out the vividness of the colours so strikingly John...the contrast with the background compliments the fine exposure on the rose.
