I wish I knew what rose this is. I found it at this perfect stage of opening – had to clone in a little in the LL to fill in a gap and distorted the right side a little as that last petal edge was a little too straight. Canon 5D4, Canon 100mm macro, f/4, 1/500 sec, ISO 100, tripod. That was about it. Cloned out 2 spots.

Diane: I don’t know the formal name of this rose but it looks like one that we have in our garden and is one of my reliable and perennial bloomers. I like your DOF/POF choice and the frame filling comp of this pleasing color palette. Top notch shot. >=))>
Diane, I love this image. The shallow DOF draws my eye to the edge of the petals that are sharp. The soft pastel colors are a real treat to the eyes. Looks like you did a fine job with your cloning. I have no idea the name of the rose, but it sure is beautiful. Excellent presentation.
