Act II. Scene II.

28mm f2.8 1/60s ISO100
...that which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet.

I'm coming back in this late hour to add the colored version of this rose. I do like the color in it and find it softer and delicate.  But I liked the crisp edge the anther and stamen when the color was removed.  It draws the eye right into that.


  1. Thanks for the tips! I am using both Picasa 3 and Gimp so it looks like I am heading in the right direction. I just need to be patient with myself and remember I have been doing this seriously for almost 2 have been doing it for...thanks Jason! Your encouragement helps me a lot!

  2. Exquisite, and the black and white is the perfect touch.

  3. Lovely framing and depth of field!

  4. Almost unbelieveable ! How lovely and dynamic at the same time. Wonderful EYE !!
