August 27

We found this beautiful rose bush in someone's front yard one street over from our house.  I couldn't believe the colors on it; they hardly look real!  This was one of my favorite angles and I tried it at a lot of different ISOs.  The +10macro filter really just focuses in one plane, so moving up the ISO a little adds to the misty effect of the layers that are out of focus.  I like it, but I feel like this is an old trick for me now.  Also I'm not sure about that dark patch in the corner, but having the open space there gives the flower a little more depth so I decided to leave it in.
f/5.6, 1/320, ISO320, +10macro filter, 45mm
