Thanks Sue :) The vase is a glass salt shaker, this rose really isn't very big.

wowee!!! :clap: I like the second better, the composition is stronger.

I agree with Carol - the delicacy of the petals is gorgeous in the second one.

WOW, these are great photos, with wonderful lighting. I hope you're going to paint them Deb. :clap: :thumbsup:

Thanks Carol, Celeste, and Val. I liked the 2nd one the best too.

Val- I'm fighting with a rose painting right now, I know I will get through it one way or another. But I might not want to paint another rose for a while :D

These are beautiful. I really like how you handled the Bokeh in both of them, but I am partial to the first one. I think the lighting on the petals is more even and pleasing in the first one.

Both are beautiful, but I am especially keen on the second (I'm obsessed with detail :D )

i've got to be about the only woman in the world that's not crazy about roses but i have to say, that second photo is breathtaking. i especially love the simple form of this rose. not all those fussy petals to fiddle with and the glow of the golden tones on the petals is incredible!

Gorgeous!!!!!! I've seen your photos in the "Day in the Life" project, you're an amazing photographer!

I like the first one but the core of the second picture would be a big help for the details. Amazing pictures.

Thanks so much for the very nice comments everyone! Wow, really thanks :)

Yes, if you want to use these two photos as a reference you may. I would love to see your work if you use them. :)

Amazing photos! I love both of them.

I suppose it's the shadows that make the second one the most interesting, to me at least ...

Deb, I agree the second one would make a stunning painting, as the picture is fantastic! Were you planning on painting it? Maybe we could all paint it. Make a project of it.
