JJJJJJanice, this is tantamount to an act of tr**s*n.
Begrudgingly, I have to admit, not a bad lens.
Seriously though, you handled the harsh lighting very well, nice colours.
PS, you realise of course, you'll never live this down. And that is from both camps ;)

I think that the secret of longevity of your roses is your work with clippers each winter and a lot of love for them!
Your photo testifies of your cares.
Excellent close-up on the blurred BG. I like the good mix of acuity and softness in the same time. Bravo!

Beautiful capture Janice of a flawless Rose, I just came back from walk in the Palmy Gardens, flowers are out in full
Yes this one stands out. Even from the thumbnail! You must have used "state of the art equipment"! It's an explosion of pink although to be honest I have the impression the picture isn't 100% in focus. For some reason the right and lower side of the flower appears a bit blurred to me (can't be the camera!). Anyway It's wonderful to see such anice picture from spring while it's fall in Europe.
Fine shot my dear!

Beautiful soft colours in these roses! Lovely composition and lighting, the softness of the rose is excellent and I really like the dark background accentuating the image. Best regards

Yes, can see you live at the otherside of the world.
Here in Holland the last Roses trying to survive in the cold late sunlight.
Very good and clear capture.

Superb rose! Excellent color and detail. Nice blurred BG. I wish that BG piece on the right wasn't there, but you probably couldn't do much about it. Nice choice of camera and lens. I'm using a D70 and a D300. TFS.
Janice...Im sure your Canon would have done a better job!..(or is it the photographer.. he he) little out of focus bottom right..thought it was my eyes at first... BUT what a beauty of a shot, nice ROSA..opps I mean ROSE, and I do like your title up there in the left corner.. looks nice.
And whos N*k*n (so hard to say that word)..was it ??

Merhaba Janice,nefis bir gül fotoğrafı,kadraj ve derinlik çok güzel, renkler ve artalan çok hoş,ellerine sağlık :)
Very nice capture of this flower, beautiful colours.
The focus seems just a little soft, looks like the focus is more on the back left petals.
Don't be ashamed!
Only the best photographers use NIKONS. I'll say that again NIKON!
I love this shot, so large and close-up.
The detailed texture of the petals is in sharp focus and contrasts well with the blurred b/g.
