[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beautiful rose I photographed in our garden. It was the first day, when it opened its petals and my husband who is the hobby gardener is very proud of it, and I´m happy.
Have a good day and take care. Thank you for your critics and your views.
This photograph is nearly full size, just cropped a little, but no more PP work.

Eine Rose von Rose,
hallo - Gratulation an deinen Mann. Die Blüte ist in der Tat perfekt. Sehr schön intensives rot und das Pentax typische Grün. Die Tiefenschärfe hast du perfekt hinbekommen. Ein erstklassiges Portrait.
Gruß vom ebenfalls durchnäßten Rheinufer - Thomas

der Himmel gestern abend hat gehalten, was er versprach - leider!!

Bom dia Rose,
Is'nt a dream, but a reality, a beautiful reality that bears your name. Excellent POV/ DOF and good sharpness. Great contrast and color game.
This is a good job,

A (red) rose by rose!

One of the most difficult color to get an accuracy on, but you managed it so well. Most of the times, red color seems to get either OE or high color saturation, but this is not case here. The heart of the flower is even more interesting and tender to enjoy. The picture is razor-sharp and the clarity is amazing.

The smoothness in the blurry BG, also gives a 3-D look to this beautiful rose. A very well composed shot with an elegant framing. Well done!

Viele Liebe Grüße

Hello Rose, A beautiful Rose here too :)

I really loved the Red against the Green blur b/g. Its very well captured and effective POV.
Simple and beautiful.


Bonjour Rose,
Ce rouge nous offre une très jolie composition sur un ton de vert. Le flou en arrière plan est très réussi.
Belle réalisation.
Merci et bonne journée.

Hello Rose.

Hi Rose,

A beautiful macro of your husband's rose. The shallow DOF has created a nice soft background that contrasts well with the red of the rose.

Warm regards,

Excellent photo of a fantastic rose, I love this colour, very nicely composed

Great one, pleasant and soft, just like a rose should be.
Amazing green colours in bokeh, good to see that our camera (Petax K-x) can achieve these hues. I don´t have that Macro lens though, are you happy with it?
Nice white thick frame including the inner red line.
Must be proud of your garden and of your husband, I am jealous (of the garden) hahaha.
