Easily one of the nicest flower shots I've seen here.

One of my two tens. Yes, I've seen fill the frame roses before but none lovelier. And it was the color that got me, I think - wonderful winter whites. Congratulations on the red, George.

So surprised to ribbon with this shot. I bought about 20 different flowers at the flower market (it's very cheap here in Taiwan) and took about 100 shots for this challenge. I wanted something colorful. Then I had this box of white Iceberg roses for another project (wedding invitation card) and didn't like the sober white color. I only wanted to keep the curves with a very white tone. It turned out that I went darker and kept more detail. This macro shot is barely processed. Basic editing. I didn't copy ideas from others.
I look at the shots the day after and the ones that jump out I preselect. Then selecting the best one. I'll send my outtakes later.
Still thanks to all the voters for the nice comments and high votes.
To Neat: I do not take pictures for what the voters like, but what I like and what I enter I like that moment (and my mood).

This has become such a DPC cliche, sorry!

But congrats anyway, if that's what the voters like.

The soft overall feels works well for this.
