Rose

ok people. I need your help, thoughts, and advice. I took this shot this evening. After printing it and showing it to my wife she laughed at it. Please tell me what I did wrong (or right) and please tell me if this shot sucks or not

I like it quite alot actually, though it looks a touch over saturated on my monitor.

Photo looks fine to me...
...am just wondering; Did you give your wife a Rose on Valentines Day? If not, perhaps she was laughing because you were being typically Pentaxian

As a matter of fact, this is one of the roses I gave her. I saw the Dozen roses I gave her sitting in the vase and I thought I should take a shot of one.

I like it too... maybe she laughed cause the composition is somewhat cliched? Or maybe she knows something we don't... hmmm...

Maybe your wife laughed because she was thinking, "Oh...I get it now. He didn't buy me roses. He bought props for himself!"
