A Rose, nothing more to say really.

OK, to please Gary's request for info. This was taken at Lotherton Hall nr Leeds on Sunday. I was standing precariously on one leg leaning over a flower bed as most of the roses were a bit past their best.

I've cropped it to square, applied a touch of USM and desaturated a little.

Very nicely done. I would try cropping so that the outer leaves are no longer there and the image is all about the center spiral. just an idea.
