A white rose from a pot in my mother's balcony. For her name day, today, 21 of May. (Is the name day of Helen, Costas, Constantinos).
I have used a close-up filter (+1) on the lens, in order to focus nearer than 35 cm, which is the closest focus distance of the lens.
Greece, Athens, Chalandri - 20/05/2020

This is a beautiful Rose for your Mothers' name day Dimitris but the image looks a little soft to me.
At F11 I would have expected a bit more detail on the petals, especially in the centre of the Rose.
I would have removed the brown spots and the wee critter too, just to perfect the Rose.

Looks good on the dark bg and you have held on to the whites, not an easy task.
