Very beautiful!

Beautiful Karen, I love this angle and the PS work is perfectly done, gorgeous work.
Carmen14-Feb-2005 02:40
Lovely. I like the tight crop. It's a very pretty rose, too -- looks like it's blushing.
Stu14-Feb-2005 01:12
Beautiful shot.
Mark Rutter13-Feb-2005 22:04
Ooh yes. Unusual and very effective. I like the tight crop and that curled back petal is very neat.
Ian Clowes13-Feb-2005 21:35
great detail - unusual angle.

I love the work you have done with roses. This image is wonderful. Would never have thought to shot this side. You have changed my mind about that.

Great macro. I like so much the color and the soft texture you have captured here!!!

This is superb, Karen.

Clever and creative way to take a picture of a rose! It's not mawkish, it's not too's beautiful!

Great macro detail - very beautiful! You lit this well, too.
Neal Nye13-Feb-2005 12:53
Hard to imagine a different picture of a rose but here's a real beauty. Excellent in every respect.
Karen Stuebing13-Feb-2005 11:55
So soft in color and texture. Love the crop too. I see a Valentine Day card in this. :)
Guest 13-Feb-2005 11:31
So beautiful, Karen ... I just love the pink colour on the green stem! You've done such a great job with your composition!!! I'm really enjoying your flower shots!
Gary Winters13-Feb-2005 07:56
Karen, simply stunning. It belongs on your Top Ten list, for sure. Really, really good work. Starts with that terrific POV, of course. Creative, clever, compelling.
Antonis Sarantos13-Feb-2005 07:40

jude13-Feb-2005 05:12
Wow... excellent point of view, karen.. just the right amount of glow to keep the detail..
Kimberly13-Feb-2005 05:07
Lovely image! Well done :)
Gary Hebert13-Feb-2005 03:06
Very creative Karen, the side we aren't as fond of. Like the diagonal, soft light and very good color.
Coleen Perilloux Landry13-Feb-2005 03:04
Very lovely. I would never have thought of shooting the underside of a rose like this but it makes it most interesting.
petesie13-Feb-2005 02:49
Very special, Karen, the color and the angle of the rose.
Elaine (etfitz)13-Feb-2005 02:44
