The rose is beautiful!! Interesting how the different settings affected the color of the bloom. I think the 1/640 shutter speed probably captured its true red the best. Thank you for putting the settings below your shots. :)

Roses are the best photography subjects, especially when you catch them early in the morning. They are such posers.

roses if you can bear to cut them are delightful to have indoors; somewhere that you frequent a lot to enjoy them all hours of the day. If they have a perfume, that's an added bonus to their beauty

Those are really pretty Brian! I have some Knock Out Roses blooming for the first time and saw that I had already gotten a bit of fungus growing and got that nipped and so they are now looking lovely as well~

Really pretty roses, Brian!

Those are gorgeous! Our roses haven't even thought about blooming yet in spite of the heat. Hey, did you get a new hat? I like it!

Grandma C's Place said...

Your roses are looking great. Mine had to be trimmed back due to rust forming under the leaves but they are recovering nicely now.

Luminous color and a good reminder of how to make a photo more interesting by varying the focal point.

Marie said...
