20 years old rose bush, simply red, after rain
no postprocessing, - as is, only resized, Vivitar 28mm, 1.9
One big pink rose
All sorts of post processing so that it does not look like a snapshot.
Pink rose in prime.
One from a couple weeks ago near the Thai festival. Taken with the E-510, 50-200 and an extension tube.

Just back from the garden, where shot these with the Nikon 105mm f2.5 on bellows. No cropping at all.
Two roses from the Rosarium in the Amsterdam Vondelpark.
Both with G1 and Leica R Elmarit 60/2.8 one stop down.
here is mine
Cindy, the first one is wonderful
Bill - that's great, the hoverfly really sets it off.
Just this guy you know
Thank you Cindy & Jono, here is another one taken last year with the E-3
I see roses everywher these days! Two more for the rose department from today.
G1 with Carl Zeiss Sonnar 135mm/3.5
I am really getting mad at myself of all those wrong spellings and typos, but please realize English is not my native language. This in combination with clumsy typing make me typeeverywer and type in my for last post 60mm Leica, while I don't even have that lens. (Would like to though)
Should have been 90 mm, must have been looking upside down at my monitor.
Lovely flowers and lovely shots here by everyone !!
Let me add some white roses that I shot yesterday in the botanic garden :
Rafael (who feels like getting married with all these white roses )
Excuse me that I impose myself with another post, but I happen to be rather busy with photography these days and this is a hospitable forum, I believe. BTW I ment holy grail in the other post
Kind regards, Michiel
G1 with Meyer Lydith 30mm 1:3.5]
Raf, all three of your images are very nice but the first one is my favourite. You have the right amount of DPF to accentuate not only the flowers but the background as well. Great shot!!
thanks, Bill, for your appreciation !
Here's two more shots of wild roses in the back of my garden.
My wife likes likes to collect the leaves to make tea or marmelade, so I have to hurry to make my pics first
G with Micro-Nikkor 55/2.5 @ f8
What a wonderful thread this is:
I guess roses bring out the best photographic skills in anyone. What's going to happen when the rose season is over? I'm from Canada, and there things don't happen all year round.
It also looks as if photographers are very often good gardeners!
Well done everyone
G1 + 14-45 kit lens + front element from a survey instrument
I repair and calibrate survey instruments and just happen to have a few lenses laying around.
These are past their sell-by date but have a certain beauty all the same.
G1+200mm Nikkor - [email protected]/22 - Natural light.
Their must be some roses in Canada. Rose are very easy; give them horse**** (excuse me) in wintertime and trim them constantly.
Going to Canada, Toronto, the 16th to my dear sister, one of my nieces is getting married and she has three daughters, so I am there on a regular basis.
This is the second one getting married within two years. Keeps me busy
Still figuring out how to travel light, I mean what should I not take with me.
I would say we are having a wet summer with temperatures going as low as 17 degrees. Rain for the next week. Don't need many clothes - just bring a lot of cameras, plenty to shoot!
I just realized that although I don't grow roses, I buy my wife a bunch every year on our anniversary - so I'm going into the Lightroom library to see what I can find
Here's my offering - G1 with Nikkor 50mm f1.4, 1/640sec at F/2.8 (I think)
two more from the wild roses in the back of my garden :
G1 with Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8 @ f8 iso100
My house seems to be atractive to lenses.
Another Rose with another lens. This is one of our own roses on the terras.
Carl Zeiss Biotar 58/2
Found this on my table...
... and this as well...
no great art but...these are the first flower images i have made in maybe 30 years and these are the very first roses that i have ever grown!
It's been a long time since any roses have been posted.
Extra-ordinary, I still have flowering roses in my garden. Our planet is definitely warming up !
Here's a few
(G1 with Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8, wide open, on tripod)
(G1 with Nikkor 180/2.8 ED, my new lens that arrived today, also wide open)
(G1 with 180/2.8 ED, wide open)
Here's one more from the Nikkor 180/2.8 ED, shot wide open, on tripod
Our autumn is quite windy but the temperatures are soft, so I was not surprised to find more roses in the botanical garden in Leuven yesterday.
Here's a shot with the Nikkor 50/1.4, wide open
1. Nikon Nikkor 85mm f2 .... a little out of focus, maybe should be in the bokeh thread.
2. Nikon Nikkor Micro 55mm f2.8......damn Affords
