A rose is a rose, except when photographed by Murry.
It then becomes an award winner.

Thanks, Sherrie! The real beauty of the antique roses are that they pretty much take care of themselves :0)

This shot displays so beautifully when it pops up on the new home page - it's a real eye catcher!

Macro rules! Keep up the good work, Murry - and a belated congratulations on your win with this.

What a beauty! The delicate yellow seeds over this rich, majestic and powerful red and that light, all make for a real stunner! Congratulations on the well deserved win.

This has all of the "eye popping" appeal in it that you could possibly want!

Really like this one!!
