In my latest favorite book "Game of thrones" by Martin, there are special blue winter roses mentioned, they are said to be precious and so beautiful, but sadly they don't exist.So I made myself one.

It's so nice that we can colour a rose the way we want! This is beautiful Tanja. The black background and the black shadows of the rose really bring out a gorgeous blue or periwinkle coloured rose. Very simple and artistic.

Hello Tanja,
I like your invention, very pretty indeed. I like it against the black background it looks great.

Hi Tanja,

Nice work, it's a very delicate shot but also has something quite harsh about it, I guess the cold blue tones. It's a great shot, very atmospheric with nice crisp lines good contrast. I like the black BG, it works well with the mood of the picture. I like the noise that can be seen on the rose too, works well. The only thing I find a little strange is that you've cropped the bottom part of the rose away, I think it may look better if we could see the whole thing. I find myself wanting to look below the frame.

You have a lot of great work in your gallery here, I'll come back from time to time because it's nice looking through it all, I find it quite inspiring.

Hi tanja.

This is a delightful picture. The colors are magical, and so are the textures.
