Sorry cannot think of anything to write about with this picture! It was taken in Indian Battle Park and is Alberta's emblem. Wild rose country.
Enjoy!!!

Encreased Exposure by 2 points.

I felt that this subject needed an exposure encrease; this is a GREAT creation of Christan Rapp.
Needed to bring forth the GOLD of the stamens; also lightened the petals as if the 'sun' was shining on them. Decreased the magenta by 1 point.
This subject is so very BEAUTIFUL that I felt it did NOT need a frame to enhance it further.
Congratulations, Christian. This is still "YOUR" creation inspite of the W/S.
Mario with friendly greetings from Calgary.

crop, fill light, frame

I cropped this just a bit tighter to bring out the details in the rose and shadows. I also tried to brighten it a bit with the fill and then I framed it, but those are just me playing.
