A rose is a perennial flower shrub or vine of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae, that contains over 100 species and comes in a variety of colors. The species form a group of erect shrubs, and climbing or trailing plants, with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. It is a common error to refer to roses having thorns. Thorns are modified branches or stems, whereas these sharp protrusions on a rose are modified epidermal tissues (prickles).
Most are native to Asia, with smaller numbers of species native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. Natives, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and fragrance.
The leaves are alternate and pinnately compound, with sharply toothed oval-shaped leaflets. The plant's fleshy edible fruit is called a rose hip. Rose plants range in size from puny, miniature roses, to climbers that can reach 20 metres in height.
Species from different parts of the world easily hybridize, which has given rise to the many types of garden roses.

The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin, rosa, which was borrowed from Oscan, from Greek rhodion (Aeolic wrodion), from Old Persian wurdi "flower" (cf. Avest. warda, Sogdian ward, Parthian wâr).

Attar of rose is the steam-extracted essential oil from rose flowers that has been used in perfumes for centuries. Rose water, made from the rose oil, is widely used in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
The French are known for their rose syrup, most commonly made from an extract of rose petals. In the United States, this French rose syrup is used to make rose scones (very tasty :)).

Rose hips are occasionally made into jam, jelly, and marmalade, or are brewed for tea, primarily for their high Vitamin C content. They are also pressed and filtered to make rose hip syrup. Rose hips are also used to produce Rose hip seed oil, which is used in skin products and some makeup products.

Hi Jolanta,

Another remarkable capture from your loving rose, and this time a white elegant rose gives a wonderful feeling of purity and happiness!

The sharpness and POV are excellent here and clarity is amazing. The rose stands out well against the dark blurry BG. Nice color contrasts within the picture. Well seen!

Jolanta, this is a pretty trivial rose close-up that has nothing special about it. I am sure the rose itself was amazing, but the image is not. It was taken with crummy light and consequently lacks depth and warmth. Technically, is pretty soft and it lacks detail, but this isn't the problem: In addition to decent light, you would have needed something special to make this image interesting, water droplets, an insect, a smart composition, something else than a straight-on shot.

simple shot to share the char and warmth of this delicate flower.very clear and balanced picture.tfs

Witaj Joluniu :)

Piekna, wspaniala ró¿a, nic dziwnego,
ze wlasnie ten kwiat nosi nazwe krolowej kwiatow.
Piekna kompozycja Jolu, sliczne ujecie
w naturalnych kolorach i swietle, a ciemne tlo
podnosi jescze walor urody tego kwiatu.

Gratuluje wykonania i serdecznie Cie pozdrawiam.
