7:365 snow-covered rose

my roses just will not completely give up and realize that it's winter.


shutter: 1/125 aperture: f/5.6 60mm ISO 200


aperture priority with Nikon D300 i've also got the saturation dialed up on my camera, but that rose really is pretty darn red.

    i did another version of this one too, with an antique treatment, just to push myself out of my normal rut. what do you think?

    Oh lovely...I like both, I prefer the antique one by a smidge. It's really unusual.
    Seen in the group"the blog camp 365 in 2010 project" (?)

    I love them both, the antique one is warmer it's definitely different, but I'm not sure which one I prefer. I love that perfect little hat of snow on the rose. I tried taking similar shot but it doesn't want to work with my kit lens.
  • Kristine 5y

    Excellent. I love the sharpness & the blurryness of the background. I like both shots - they have quite a different feel to them, don't they?
  • Shokoofeh Z.Dezfuli 5y

    Mmm... I like the original one more. It can beautifully evokes the cold feeling of snow.

    Great shot, instant favorite!

    I think the antiqued one is warmer, but the original one pops, even amongst the thumbnails. My absolute favorite, though, is the one you did last year, showing the frost on the beautiful bud.

    frosty rose

    it makes me realize that today's shot has a lot more sorrow in it than that one had. :-) but the snow has been much harder on the rose now. :-)

    Love the deep red and bright white of the first shot....but the second shot is very romantic and timeless.
  • Seamus O'Conner 5y

    Absolutely beautiful. I love how the red is so deep. Great work.
  • Cheryl MacLean 5y

    Both are really lovely - I like the second one slightly more because it has an 'unexpected' look to it.
  • sucker for marketing 5y

    Definitely love the first shot that is more red. Again, that is me with the not loving the processing thing. I really need to think outside of my box more!
  • kristina_lf 5y

    I like the first one the best - that red is so striking. the details are perfectly sharp!
  • Cyndy Engle 5y

    Yes, Julie, that's the one! I think of this picture often. Irony draped in beauty...
  • Jennifer Gandin Le 5y

    Gorgeous! I like the first shot -- red against snow is always striking and beautiful to me.
  • AABoras 5y

    We have a rosebush that my hubby has been trying to kill with no success...it just keeps spreading. Love the original image with the deep red saturation!! Beautiful!!
  • Mel Hunt 5y

    Both are beautiful - and very different feels. I think I prefer the first one, gorgeous color.
