Ahhh, beautiful, fall weather today...sunny but cool...and my neighbor has a few roses blooming! No complaints, flowers are great to see and smell whenever you find them. Of course the camera insisted on a chance to go out and play before work. Usually a subject like this seems soft, delicate, and vulnerable to me, but this rose definitely evinced sturdiness and showiness. (At least I didn't say it had "pluck"!) I was content to work with the bare sunlight, rather than adding a diffuser or reflector. Appropriate for a rose showing its stuff in autumn, right?
I used a 300 mm lens, and a 25 mm extension tube to allow focusing just a little closer.
