    Hi Kathy and welcome

    I like the concept behind this photo, however i think i would clone out what look to me to be a couple of cows in the background as they tend to draw the eye away from the rose, i'm no expert but other than that i think you have done a good job

    Regards
    James

    Yes, I agree with James.

    Roses are difficult to photograph well and you have done well with the colour, detail and depth of focus; but that background just doesn't work for me.

    I find that flowers, particularly roses, tend to need either some careful camera work in a studio or a little natural greenery in the distant background. But I know how difficult this can be to achieve.

    Hi Kathy,
    I agree the background (cows) do distract from Rose itself. I like the overexposed area around the flower. I rotated your picture 90 degrees clockwise (just turned the screen), which I think, also works well. Well done.
