This is one rose from an arraignment of flowers I bought my wife for Valentines day. We were engaged on Valentines Day 31 years ago. Maybe we should get married. :-) Ok... we were married later the same year in October.
I played with the image in Lightroom to create a different look.
It was shot with the 50mm lens with 3 close up filters attached. f/1.8 @ 1/45 - ISO 500
Handy gadget tip: Lens Pen:
If you do not own a lens pen, I suggest you purchace one. It has a brush on the one end and a dry cleaning pad on the other side. It does an amazing job cleaning your lens and brushing loose dirt from your lens or camera. I use the 'original' lens pen but many manufacturers sell them now. They can be purchased from Amazon for less than $10. I recommend keeping one in each bag. LensPEN Lens Cleaning System
