Henri Matisse said, “There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.”

I rather think the same could be said for photographing roses.

    This is beautiful, Holly, love the rose petals on the table, the addition of the clock was a nice touch and I like the color tone! Dee

  • Thanks Dee! The clock has been waiting its turn for a chance at a still life. :-)

    So nicely composed! The warm lighting combined with the subject matter, colors, hues of them, contrasts and editing so nicely adds a yesteryear feel to this! : )

  • Thank you so much for such a lovely comment Sandy!! :-)

    Love the Matisse quote, Holly, supporting this outstanding composition. You are getting very very good at this. It looks as though you forgot about all the other roses you photographed! This one should attract a lot of attention, I think, and win you some featurings.

  • Thanks David… my friend Eyestrange (Pat Hartley) has often reminded me of three words when it comes to photography….‘practice, practice, practice’. I keep repeating those words when I’m setting up a still life. :-D

    Holly, such a richly balanced composition. The pile of petals adds a depth and the key for the clock adds a sense of time standing still. Oh my, such truly creative and lovely work!

  • I knew you’d notice the key Carolyn!! I put it in there thinking of you. Thank you for such a great comment my friend! :-)
