Re: Does this look better?

From the velvety petals and the poster's description of a deep red, I suspect that the rose in his photograph is a Baccarat, which has more of a burgundy color.

When you do a Google image search for Baccarat rose, you'll see that the opening poster is not the only one having trouble getting the colors right ! 

This image from a stock photo agency seems pretty accurate.
