I really didn't want to do another flower shot but after failing to come up with a good shot of a bike and being that we had a fresh bouquet of roses I had to do it. Really simple shot, used someones idea of breathing on the lens to get the soft focus effect which took a couple of tries to get the right amount. Pretty happy with the final shot. Hope it does well!

Great detail and beauty in the rose, excellent lighting and positioning of the center of the rose as to give a bit of depth to the photo.
