Another macro night shot. I know this rose is worn, but there's always something about that weathered look of nature that makes it all the more realistic. ...And considering it was most likely over 100 when I shot this...haha.

For this photo, I used a tripod, 580EX, and a white reflector.

Worn, but beautiful. Rich color against the darkness - it looks suspended.

even a not so perfect rose can be beautiful, you prove it.

Have a great weekend!

Stunning. Yes, you can make a not-quite-perfect rose something to be admired.
