Default Rainy Day rose.

I dont consider this a true close up but there really isnt a category for Flora. Shot early evening with 1DMKIII and EF 200 2.0L handheld @ F2 ambient light only.

Thanks, Loved the angle where the green bushes approaching darkness in the background faded to black.

great mood you imparted here. the nice selective focus and the marriage of the dark colors is quite nice.

Beautiful shot. However I think an 8x10 cropped a little closer and losing some of the black background wouldn't do it any harm. Vertical or horizontal : both would work here I think.

Yes the thought of a vertical crop already came to mind
I was just so awe struck by the image the rest got left in the wind.

Here is a vertical crop.

Also couldnt help myself with the roses doing so nicely. Here is a different rose from a different angle with the bud offset in the frame. A little more ambient light this time, still at F2 but ISO at 100 and shutter at 1/3200
