The ‘Black Rose’

This variegated rose has beautiful colour hues of orange and red.

I shot it with a macro tube on a lens set at 56mm (112mm in 35 format)

What I didn’t notice at the time was having set up the flower to catch side light from the window – The same side light caught the chairs and window sill in the background!

The flower is off centre which makes a vignette out of the question, The unevenness of a Vignette  and the vivid colour, would make the viewer’s eye wander.

Although the colours of the rose is what caught my attention , in the first place, there is nice texture there as well.

So without further ado, I present you with the ‘Black Rose’

What will I do next time – Raise the ISO, shoot about F8, shoot flash to over expose foreground – or DUH! Look behind the subject.
