Challenge has finished
Photographing a single rose to capture its beauty, texture and colour is not difficult. In this challenge, show us TWO OR MORE roses in bloom, with open petals, in your entry. A single rose and bud, or unopened buds as the subject, will be DQ'd. The roses must be outside, still on the rose bush or shrub, with the natural background still visible. Please, NOT in a floral bouquet, flower market, or vase, or under studio lights. Small creatures such as insects or spiders may be present, but should not dominate the picture. Macro and close-up shots welcome. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.
