    We can spend a fortune on lighting, but nothing beats what Ma Nature supplies.

    Bet water droplets on the rose would have looked nice.

    come on saintly we are "MEN"... men aren’t supposed to be taking photos of rose's against purple backgrounds ..lol
    it does look pretty cool thou must admit..using such simple low budget lighting and background shows that there no excuse’s for the likes of me with out fancy lighting,,lol
    good composition by the way ..bottom right corner, I like it. Creating the feeling of space
    cheers.... passerby
