A real rose lit with a single sparkler. After 25 shots my room looks and smells like a welding crib.

The broken glass really makes this special. Very good effect. Reminds me of fireworks! 9 Swash

The idea is great...i almost totally like how it resulted...but i think the dullness of the colors on the rose contrast too much with the bright sparkler things.

is that a rose with super imposed fireworks ? looks a little overexposed in the petals 4

Neat effect. What was used to make the "sparkles". The rose looks like it has a bit of bluish hue. Could be my monitor

For me roses are the most difficult bloom to photograph. I admire the beautiful and most natural colour you have picked up in this flower. The spikey environment gives this rose a real place to live on the picture plane....

Interesting twist on the rose cliché. I like the thorns (or branches?). Well done. 7

Are these sparkels? The white lines actually look like aome kind of plant.
