A good shot of a rose - but there are some improvements that can be done to take this from good to great. First off there are some parts of the rose that are in focus and others not. For greater depth of field a smaller aperture and longer shutter time would give that - but it is recommended you use a tripod to avoid camera shake. Or if you have a camera that has a setting that has multiple focus points I would recommend using it - it can produce fantastic results. Next the lighting seems overly harsh - the color yellow is too bold; almost neon in glare. Too heavy on the highlights (light) and not enough balance of/on the shadows which would give the yellow a more deep, rich hue. In smaller matters, the color yellow is not what one would expect to represent the book (that is those who have read it). Given that the novel takes place in medieval setting; a murder mystery set in a monastic library. The tone and mood of it is more dark than happy. Yellow tends to be a happy, cheery color.
