    As a serious hobbyist , I raise roses but have never photographed them. This was shot with a Sony DSC-P100. ISO 400 F. 5.8

    This is my first attempt and do very much welcome your critique. Cropping only done by Photoshop in a soft mode.

    Good colors, but the rose itself seems a bit blurry and out of focus. How close is the lense to the rose? Did you use macro mode for the shot?

    I did put a slight gaussian blur on the image to give it a soft look. Perhaps a mistake.

    It just appears like the stem is in perfect focus but the flower fell out of it. I would try a retake.

    The DOF in my opinion also needs to concentrate more on the flower and it's pedals. make the flower pop out of the page screaming at the viewer....
