    I was walking through the kitchen and noticed this rose my wife had placed on the table. I was in a "photo" mood so I stuck it in a chair with a nearby black jacket thrown behind it. I stuck the camera on a tripod and got, by my amateur standards, a nice image.

    I would apprecioate input regarding the leaves and the white "baby's breath". Are they good as they are, or should I have tried to have them brighter? As you can tell, I went for a somewhat isolated focus.

    I would leave them as they are...you want the focus on the rose, not all that other stuff. Nice shot.

    Great photograph! The liner of your jacket makes for a nice background.

    Nice shot. The only thing that I might have tried is to spread the baby's breath out in the back. That would have taken them out of the shadow and filled the picture out a little more. Either way, good job.

    Love the lighting on the rose. I might've cropped a little off the sides on this picture, but thats me. Good work

    Thanks for your positive comments. The suggestions seemed very appropriate. Regarding the suggestion to spread out the baby's breath a little - I was so "into" getting the rose that I did not even look at that. Thanks.

    I think it's a really nice capture of the rose. I think you could do a lot to make the shot more interesting, arrange the flower better, etc. but I think the lighting and capture of the rose itself is very nicely done. My immediate reaction was "oh wow, very pretty rose..."
