I came upon a bush of lovely roses that stopped me because they were so fragrant as well as beautiful. The soft light passing through the petals made the back of the flower especially appealing, and I used a large aperture to emphasize the romantic softness. The quote from Rumi is a favorite and seemed to suit the image. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/3.5, 1/250 sec., ISO 200, open shade, handheld)
