A wild rose for Rose
Lens: DA*300/4 Camera: K5 
Posted By: jpzk, 08-07-2014, 07:11 PM

I just sent this to my daughter for her new "Rose", a fresh new grandchild of ours!
This is a very common type of wild rose which can be found in tons of bushes along the St Lawrence River valley in Québec.
Besides being colourful, they smell very nice too ... embalming the air all around the birding spots where I usually go.

Nice image. I love the way a long lens can do closeups.

Very nice colors and sharpness. The long lenses usually produce some nice bokeh, also. If I may suggest, if you have the uncropped image, show slightly more of the foliage to the right of the flower, so the flower has "somewhere to go," so to speak? It appears as if the leaves to the right have some amazing detail and it might add to the overall feeling. Just a suggestion and it isn't meant to imply that your photo isn't great as is.... just a thought in passing.

My DA*300/4 has served that purpose ever since (years ago) I have discovered that it can do some rather good "close ups".

I am glad you like the picture.

Thanks for your reply, Dewman.

I'll see how much cropping I did with this shot .... as I recall, I was quite close so there might not be much at all to recover.
But, I'll go and check the DNG again.

Good idea by the way. I am always for some sort of positive criticism which can render an image better.

Cheers!

JP
