This is a Rose from my Mom's funeral in August. It has been sitting on my mantel since then. The background became blown out with my 1.3 sec exposure while hitting it with a flash gun. The long exposure is also why the rose looks so painted. I only adjusted some basic exposure/contrast/clarity in LR during post.

Love the colors and the blur (mostly). I wish some part of this image (perhaps one edge with light on it) was tack sharp to contrast with all the rest of the image. I guess it's a matter of preference or artistic expression. I like so much of this and think it just missed getting a very high score from me. Still...it's a worthy effort.

Nice how the orange coloration seems to be an inner glow. I wish that the topmost details hadn't been cut off, which as is looks like someone diving into the rose.
