Red rose

I am staring at the photograph of water drop covered red rose almost every day. The small print hangs on my wall.

For this week’s Macro Monday theme “Dark” I went back to the Lightroom catalog and found the rest of images taken during this studio session few years ago. It was hard to choose another one- back then, focusing with Lensbaby with macro filter was a challenge. It still is, at least now I stopped using f/2.8.

It surprising how just few clicks in Develop module, including crop, can change an image. I like those two leading diagonal lines I created by this crop. And the rest of the room falls into shadow….
