Today... again... more roses :)
Roses are really graceful models to photograph :)

A rose is a perennial flower shrub or vine of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae, that contains over 100 species and comes in a variety of colors. The species form a group of erect shrubs, and climbing or trailing plants, with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. It is a common error to refer to roses having thorns. Thorns are modified branches or stems, whereas these sharp protrusions on a rose are modified epidermal tissues (prickles).
Most are native to Asia, with smaller numbers of species native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. Natives, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and fragrance.
The leaves are alternate and pinnately compound, with sharply toothed oval-shaped leaflets. The plant's fleshy edible fruit is called a rose hip. Rose plants range in size from puny, miniature roses, to climbers that can reach 20 metres in height.
Species from different parts of the world easily hybridize, which has given rise to the many types of garden roses.

The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin, rosa, which was borrowed from Oscan, from Greek rhodion (Aeolic wrodion), from Old Persian wurdi "flower" (cf. Avest. warda, Sogdian ward, Parthian wr).

Attar of rose is the steam-extracted essential oil from rose flowers that has been used in perfumes for centuries. Rose water, made from the rose oil, is widely used in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
The French are known for their rose syrup, most commonly made from an extract of rose petals. In the United States, this French rose syrup is used to make rose scones (very tasty :)).

Rose hips are occasionally made into jam, jelly, and marmalade, or are brewed for tea, primarily for their high Vitamin C content. They are also pressed and filtered to make rose hip syrup. Rose hips are also used to produce Rose hip seed oil, which is used in skin products and some makeup products.

Hi Jolanta,
A fabulous macro of this red rose adorned with subtle lighting and accurate sharpness.
Great red tones and nice vivid colors.
Good POV and an ample DOF with the thorns on the branches in excellent sharpness.
Very neat work.

Lovely macro capture of the red rose with great feelings, Jolanta!
the colors are very natural and the POV is perfect. The clarity is pin-sharp!
The blurry BG adds great beauty to thsi work. The diagonally shown branch of the flower, was indeed a nice decision.

Wonderful work!

Hello jolanta

Very good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness & tight framing on the red rose. Good colour saturation & diffused light. Tfs!

Ciao Jolanta

Your low point of view works well, bringing in
the strong foreground element to create depth...
Shining colours, a balanced composition!
Lovely sharp and wonderful red colours.

Witaj Jolu :)

Krolowa Kwiatow jest niezmiennie pikna,
zmienia tylko ksztalt i kolory.
Wspaniale je prezentujesz.

Gratuluje wykonania.
Serdecznie pozdrawiam.

Hello Jolanta,

You have captured this lovely rose with sharp focus and excellent, petal details, utilising a narrow dof to emphasise its beauty, by blurring its b/g.

I hope you don't mind but I have produced a w/s, not to criticise your shot or improve upon it, but just to show a different way of presenting it.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Czesc Jolanta! Wspaniala roza, wrecz roza mistyczna, swietny kontrast, bardzo dobra ostrosc. Ladnie zlapane tlo. Klaniam sie!

Super roza!
Piekne kolory,swiatlo i detale.

Hi Jolanta,
The swirl of the intensely vivid red rose is most attractive, the thorny stalk lends appeal, your exposure management is ideal. There is good sharpness. Best regards.
