Hello My TrekLens Friends:
Are you getting tired of my Unusual Rose Series?  From Portland Rose Garden:  I decided to call it Rose of the Evening Sun. The was almost dramatic as the sun was strong insides of the petals as you see. I had walked away from it thinking that the sun was too strong, but then as I turned the other side from this angle I could almost visualize the image in my mind.
The petals were scarce compared to some other roses. But the sun's filtering its rays was exactly as you see it. I wanted to hold my camera grip with one hand and shade the lens with my palm of the other hand, and that is what I did. But this meant no blur on image so 1/200 sec, speed. I went down to ISO 80 for less grains, and opened the F Stop to F/3.2. The lens on my old Olympus E-10 was fixed, really great for lower F Stop.
In PP work is my usual TrekLens style of border. But then I went to: Filters/Render/Light Effects/Flashlight/Luminosity. This was I was able to create softer and darker outer edges of the rose and highlight the sun's filtering rays, since that was the key to the capture of this rose.
I am very thankful to so many of you for encouraging me to keep posting on this series.
David

Wonderful image of classical flower shooting. I think the hot pink is working well here. The green leave is a bit distracting. Maybe one would consider either getting rid of it or get some more of them. Really like the framing you've got here.
