The last dead rose on my rose bush. It's snowing/raining/sleeting right now, that's why there's so much gray in the background. The lines are the vines of the bush. Handheld, manually focused.

Cropped, shadow/highlight adjustment, hue/saturation layer, usm, resize, usm, small border.

The colors seems kind of dead for me...I don't see a good bokeh there, because the background is already unsharpened, because it looks like a painted wall or something. Try more focus and a different background next time.

I like the background and subject and I think their colours work well together.

The subject is a little OOF(?).

Ghostly bokeh. This is quite moody but not entirely depressing with the light patterns.

Flower isn't very sharp.
