This rose variety (the floribunda “Judy Garland”) is another of my favorites, even though catching blooms at their best is really difficult because the flowers seem to have such a brief lifespan. A few weeks ago, I couldn’t believe my good fortune when there were TWO really fine blossoms at the same time under soft lighting from an overcast sky. I explored every possible angle and f/stop, with this being one of the wide-open f/2 creations that I liked best. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/2, 1/3200 sec., ISO 200, overcast, handheld)

    I love the smooth creaminess your wide open shot has created . . .it is just so striking against the fine detail you have achieved. So vibrant . . . .

  • Thank you, Teresa! I’ve been experimenting to learn more about the way my lens behaves, especially at the wider apertures.

    This is just stunning, Celeste, and.. actually… fire and passion describes so much of your work…. the color and the precision in this gorgeous rose is outstanding…and, viewed large, it’s just breathtaking….you should do a book full of your wonderfully colorful photographs accompanied by your descriptions….the two go hand-in-hand and it would be a flower-lover’s dream book.

  • Thank you so much, Katherine, as you always make such thoughtful comments. In fact, I owe you a huge “thank you” for your steady support ever since I joined RedBubble. :)
