Rose is a Rose...
Lens: SMC Pentax F 35-80mm Camera: Pentax K-x ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F5.6 

Here's a rose I shot just a couple of hours ago at my mother's house. The image is pretty much SOOC, I just cropped it down to the size you see here. Give me some thoughts on what you would do with it, or grab the image and make some edits yourself and re-post!

By any other name, that's a nice shot. (Sorry...)
Thanks for sharing.

Overall, a nice image. I don't think I would have cropped it so closely, though. It's a tad underexposed, too.

Thanks! I will attempt to adjust the exposure a bit on the RAW file. I cropped it due to an unsightly bare spot in the foliage surrounding the rose. I will see what I can do about that too, maybe with the cloning tool.

Thanks for posting the beautiful image. You might want to remove the small but prominent, almost circular spot at upper left and consider further toning down or elimination of the larger circular and oblong distractions at upper right (near the flower).
Best wishes.
