Re: Roses.

Very nice work Latha - I like the play of light on the roses and the contrast between detail down right and out-of-focus upper left.

Re: Roses.

Lovely rendering on the roses ,for me they seam to be floating darkening the stems would help or going darker around the stems to push them forward.Leaves are a great opportunity to make them interesting by varying the greens some parts are in shadow other in light this also helps to create form some that come out of the b/g by allowing some b/g color onto the leaves.

Re: Roses.

Very pretty, I agree about the light it's perfect but I think what I love most is that they nestle together, I know my roses bend from the weight of their heads and this is so natural in it's appeal. Well done.

Re: Roses.

I like the background. The composition just works for me. Altogether lovely. Since you asked for C&C, the only thing, and it is small, is as stated above, darken the stems in places of the roses up front and in focus. Really a beautiful piece.
