Unlike its neighbor, this pink rose has a deep, vibrant color, and is still just opening, so it’s not full of dirt, debris, and “bee stuff.”
This picture is off-center, but I really liked it that way. The pink contrasts well with the greens.
The wind was blowing a ton when I took these, and especially on these macro shots, focus and composition are a crap shoot.
The photographer’s greatest friend these days is the digital camera! Memory storage is dirt cheap, where film was expensive as hell. If it’s windy, shoot 50-60 pictures, find the two or three that are in focus.
Why rely on skill when you can use statistics?
