Spring on Rose Glow
17x17 inch frame
12x12 inch Color photo
This was taken in spring as the beautiful burgundy leaves were emerging from this very grey wooden branch. The bush is the a variety of the Japanese Barberry called Rose Glow.
The feedback I received on this photo was
- nice use of depth of field
- great composition - use of rule of thirds
- the highlight on the leaf to the right of the center of the flower is a bit distracting

The original was shot in color as the pieces are beautiful maple hard wood pieces.
I converted it to black and white for this show.
It was just so well lit when I shot this flower.

I loved how the dark mats and the dark background in the photo really work to make the rose the centre of attention and focus.
This photo has been gifted to the Compassion House for an auction. I thought the pink rose for cancer fundraising quite appropriate.
