This is a nice specimen to photograph. I like the angle and the water droplets. It's a little unusual to present flowers in mono, but it sometimes works nicely to bring out textures, light and shadow. I have done a mod in an attempt to show you the possibilities available in editing. I made the background all the same tone, adjusted the contrast to bring more life into the rose, then added some sharpening to enhance the water droplets. Cropped to left and right and finished with a grey frame. The image has some good detail and texture, just a little tlc can bring it out.

I am one of those that likes black and white flowers so I couldn't resist a play with this rose..

not much wrong with it, just needed the sliders bringing in to the edges of the histogram in levels to brighten it (as in pamelajeans mod), and a touch of sharpening, i also added a layer of gaussian blur to give a little glow,
