Give us Your Favorites -- Accidental Rose
This is a very old and "accidental" shot. It was shot with my first 35mm camera, a Minolta SRT-101a. This was a fully manual camera. It had an exposure meter but it was necessary to match lens and shutter to the meter reading. In this case, however, the lens was not latched in place and had rotated enough to throw the setting off by about two f-stops! In spite of that, this is my all-time favorite shot out of about 28,000!

The "accidental" rose taken at the Portland Rose Test Garden.

The scanned image does justice to your work.
The subtle changes in colorations are well captured.
