Absolutely gorgeous :)

Twisted Fencepost said...

What a great shot!
I don't know which is prettier, the rose or the shadow!

Jeff B said...

Is the color, rather the lack there of in the background, natural or did you edit out all the color except the rose?

Either way it makes for a fantastic shot!

Sylvia K said...

How beautiful. The petals are so delicate and the shadow conveys it perfectly.

PERFECTION!!! What more can I say!

What a beautiful shadow! We love the shadow of the vase just as much as the rose!

Hey Harriet said...

Now that's very beautiful. It looks to me like the shadow rose is reaching out to the real rose. So lovely!

June said...

Very lovely composition!

Anil P said...

Among the more beautiful pictures of a rose I've seen.

One is so accustomed to associating colour with a rose that not finding one actually highlights the beauty of the rose.

Jeri said...

The rose, the shadow, both beautiful.

Lisa B. said...

I thought for a moment it was a black and white shot, and then I saw the delicate shades in the rose. Just beautiful.

The shadow defies the supposed delicacy and fragility of roses...

Oh, that's pretty! I like the way the light scatters from the vase, especially.

quilly said...

This is lovely. I so like the idea of photographing shadows. I have even considered joining, but despite this being Hawaii, I haven't seen sunshine in ages!

Wait. Let me qualify. In truth, the sun is shining bright right now, but the wind is also blowing 50 mph, which makes capturing shadows just a bit erratic!

Thom took my words!! I'll have to revert to AWESOME!!

Pietro said...

Excellent soft image, beautifully composed.

Napaboaniya APAD said...
