The Secret Life of Roses has been worked on several times since I took it a few days ago. I got hung up first on the colors. I really did try to find some other range of colors than these, my old favorites. Then I just could not get the crop "right." (It's a much larger photo. I'd leaned in as close as I dared both for the sake of my arthritic knees and my camera's issue with near focus on light colored objects.) I liked an earlier crop that included more of those lovely lavender background leaves. But that also meant including some distracting areas as well, so I had to make it smaller. Sigh, that's a lot of explaining for a picture I'm still not really content with. Well, at least I really enjoy the colors! ... and the roses at two phases of blooming.
