    I bought a long-stem red rose this past weekend and I've been experimenting with different ways to photograph it (mainly with directional lighting from a flashlight) as well as post-processing. Out of a few dozen photos, I'm posting 9 that are fairly different from each other. Note that some are from the first day when the rose hadn't completely opened.

    I would greatly appreciate comments, critiques, and suggestions. I'd also like to know which you guys like most (assuming you like any) from the series.

    #1 - Overhead light, vignette added.

    #2 - Flashlight directly overhead.

    #3 - Flashlight high above.

    #4 - Same as #3 but B&W.

    #5 - Flashlight mostly in front of rose, shadow cast on wall behind.

    #6 - Same as #5 but B&W, mostly red channel.

    #7 - Overhead light, vignette added.

    #8 - Flashlight mostly above, but in front.

    #9 - Flashlight directly overhead, aimed in front to light the front petal from behind; significantly desaturated except for the green.
