Hello My TrekLens Friends:
I am continuing with my Unusual Rose Series. This one is again from Portland Rose Garden. I decided to call it Painted Rose. The sun was shining its last rays on a few of its petals. Again this was hand held because of the crowds.

The color texture on this one was so beautiful. Its petals were not perfectly arranged like many others. But its multicolor view was fantastic. So here I am again, hoping that you will like this too. I kept my ISO at 80, and opened the F stop at 3.6 allowing me to get enough ambient so I don't have to bounce my flash. The shutter speed was 1/200 because of the wind factor.  I took only one shot at this, and here it is for you.
In PP work nothing much other that reducing saturation by 5% and sharpness at 15%. The border is done as before using three layers.
Thank you for viewing and encouraging.
David

David,
Very pretty markings on this rose and I like the lighting with just a touch of direct sunlight on the edges. Good work.

Hi David,
It's been a few days since I last visited you...and I see you've been busy and having loads of fun with roses.
Some very creative framing here...the rose itself is a BEAUTY! Don't believe I've seen this before. Great depth in keeping it all in good focus, lighting and colors are super and looks great bursting out of the frame. TFS!

your rose-series is really wonderful - i will have to take some more time and have a closer look.
i like how this one comes out of the frame, almost out of the monitor, and the slightly yellow colored petals with the pink
splashes. i wonder if it smell as good as it looks?
well done & take care, thor.
