It's So Frustrating to Shoot Roses

When I presented my gallery "Tulips For Those, Who Hate Flower Shots", I've said that tulips are my second favorite flower after roses. I had the roses gallery "Portraits of Roses" before but never was happy with it. I thought I should start re-working it, using Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, that I love so much. And I did. But I found myself in the strange situation. Whatever I tried to do to make the shots of roses interesting, I always felt some kind of frustration that they did not convey the beauty of the subject. Shoot roses is difficult, they are mostly not that rainbow-like colored like many other flowers, but they are all about a shape. So I decided to concentrate mostly on line, shapes and shades. I still feel a bit frustrated, but decided to bring my work to you attention.

Hope you enjoy the images and like them.
