Roses can be a center of attraction in a photograph as these local garden subjects show. With the morning sun behind the photographer the intense colour shows through despite some risk of colour burn-out. However, for me it is the petal pattern and form that takes center stage.
Roses can also hold your center of attention for both colour and scent in many aÂ garden
Photographs with a dark background help with the contrast and emphasise the quality of the rose flower. A shame about the black spot on the lemon sorbet.
Is this aÂ hover fly or a randomly attracted flying creature that wants the nectar or to have a rest & bask in the sunshine.
Roses have been out of fashion but this summer could be the start of a Renaissance – let us hope so.
