Bought some roses for my mother. Thought it would make a beautiful photo. Here's the result. Shot raw and a PP with Photoshop elements 8 (trial version that I consider buying it). C&C appreciated. Thanks.

Quite nice, except for the shadow cast by the leaves at the left.

Nice colors and sharp but those leaves bother me too. Hope your mom liked the roses.

Thanks for the realistic comments. The leaves bother me too when I think about it. But the important thing is that my mother enjoyed her roses

A nice gesture.
Good one here, comments above are well-advised and the clipped colour details also loses some of the beautiful texture of the roses, especially above.
But well done.
