Hmmm...a flower with water droplets on it?
I don't think it's ever been done!
There were 2 roses left on the bushes outside.
Now there are none.

Alas, this was all I could think of. Not so original, but I like the way the bokeh turned out. Small work light on the rose, small work light on the background (which is a large jade plant, the wall, a window, and some blue plastic bags taped to all of the above).

Shot in RAW

If the subject were flowers, it's be really nice - but the Bokeh in this is really boring to me.

Your title says it all. Beautiful. I like the blue bokeh because of the contrast with the red rose.
