    All sorts of post processing so that it does not look like a snapshot.

    Pink rose in prime.

    Re: Roses - Show yours

    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.
    Cheers, Michiel

    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

    I love them all!

    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

    Keith

    These are past their sell-by date but have a certain beauty all the same.

    Yes right, we must not forget the beauty in the decline of things. I am (getting) old.
    Michiel

    My latest rose with the VC Nokton 50mm/1.4 has a special colour, I think.

    Thank you Keith for your kind comments! (Also before)

    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.

    Greetings, Michiel

    Greetings, Michiel
    Michiel - which month? If its June you are already here
    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

    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)

    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
