"Yellow Roses on Film"
Are these the famed yellow roses of Texas? Good repetition & the lemon yellow color of the flowers stands out well against the mostly green bg. Excellent sharpness and shallow dof. Tfs!
I love the mix of sharply focused blossoms and those that blur into the BG. The repeating forms and angle of the branch in the frame gives a dynamtic elements to the overall compositoin.
PS: My wife loves your book

I agree with your "going back to basics" attitude.
Great use of short DOF keeping the flowers at sharp focus.
These flowers don't look like roses to me! Not that I know a lot about flowers :)
This is the rose Banksia Lutea I think. I used to grow it at home until one day Dave dug it up...
Lovely shot Linda. A little OE on the front petals, but otherwise very lovely. But I guess that's the film.

Hello Linda, I was surprised to find that this was a rose!Indeed it is a very pretty flower.
I like the composition using the diagonal line of the branch, and its echo in the bokeh,to lead us through the shot.
I also like the quality that the film gives to your picture.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Magnificent grip(taking), I imagine very well this photo as a picture(board), a painting(cloth) of a big painter, a magnificent light

wonderful rich colors linda, good focus point, you held the exposure pretty good (awesome with no meter!) yah too many are lazy, this digital thing as great as it can be it makes it too easy, i say everyone try manual only for a while and she how they do, and no PP, straight from camera...i look at it kind of like my cover band and guitar playing, we learn our parts exact as the album then change if we feel we want to, we don't change it before we learn it correctly...
