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.
