Default Marvelous Marcia Rose

I picked up this rose at Wally World about three years ago with no label. *Being the unabashed suck-up that I am, I named it for my wife. *

...well, I think it is a beautiful rose and most likely aptly named.

Hi,

You certainly do have shooting flowers, roses especially, nailed.

Another in a long series of beautiful floral images that I look forward to viewing each day.

Gary, I like the bottom right lighting on the first rose, good to see you having fun with your lighting angles. Hope your wife appreciated the "naming" enough to let you spend all that time shooting your roses.

Thanks so very much, you guys. Coming from y'all really means a LOT to me.

These were shot with off-camera flash & reflector umbrella. I'm just experimenting since it was really crappy ambient light today.

Again, words like these coming from ESPECIALLY you guys mean a LOT to me.

I was attempting to imitate the ambient light that I normally get from the window, Dustin. I think I came pretty close, don't you?
