Yep, You guessed it, Roses..

This is a macro, or close to it, from the Tamron 70-300 @ 260mm f8. No where as nice as I hope to get this year with my dedicated macros but still not bad.

This one is from my Vivitar Series 1 105mm macro (though obviously not a macro). Yes, they are above my head and yes, I am standing up and no, I am not a little person.

Wow, I really like the last one with all those amazing colors. The red from the roses contrast nicely with the blue sky in the background. I also like the small depth of field used here to make the foreground roses blurry.

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks, Cory.. At first I didn't care too much for that shot (when I took it) but the more I looked at it, the more it grew on me. I was trying to repeat some shots I had done with a Rolleflex (planar lens) and a closup lens the previous year. Didn't quite nail it but it's close.

I like the second photo a lot, the first one just really doesn't do much for me. I think that the second one has a ton of great things about it though, especially the natural frame that you created with all the plants around the roses.
