Morning Rose

Uploaded: June 22, 2005


I love photographing my flower garden. This particular photo was inspired by the POD #284 Portrait of a Rose by Stan Contrades. I used my 70-300mm Sigma telephoto lens set for Macro; f5.6; shutter speed 1/200 sec. Very little touchup was done by levels and application of artistic filters in PSE3.0.
