Hi all,

The most meaningful flower of all is considered to be the red rose. A single red rose given to a lady means you love her and she is the only one.

That's some serious depth of field Mark! An excellent take on this scene! great composition too! My only wish would be for the rose to be tad more focused to make this image perfect! It can't be easy to achieve without your eye in the viewfinder.....Just a nit though, nicely done!

Hi Greg,

Thanks for the comment. I pre-focused on a spot and then slowley swayed forward and backward as I shot off some frames with a wireless remote. The rose was moving in and out of the thin DOF and this was the best looking capture even though the bloom is not in sharp focus.

A creative twist on this weeks theme. Way to think outside of the box.

I appreciate the kind comment Carolyn. When my wife and I started dating (1985) I would bring her flowers on every date. Might be time to start that again!

Thank you Cliff. I worked on the lighting quite a bit to try and get it right. That's an spect of photography that I need a lot of work on. Glad you liked the set up here.
