You've caught the last flowering for the season,John. Many people don't prune after the summer rose  bloom  and lose the second budding/flowering in October.

Thanks John, that's interesting... I didn't know that.. but anything other than power tools (mower, leaf blower, hedge trimmer) is the OH's domain...

Very nice shots, love the first because of the clouds - great idea. I'm sure you'll try to get under the target next time and try to get more inclusion. I always look at my shots afterwards and think why didn't I do this or that.
Excellent stuff though you are very talented indeed.

Thanks very much John.

What do you mean by under the shot and more inclusion though ? The DOF is just what I was aiming for (if that's what you mean by inclusion)... I wanted only a single bud sharp and in focus.

Sorry, didn't put that very well.
What I meant was to include more of the cloud, or bring it closer to the flower by changing your perspective.

Ah gotcha thanks for the clarification.. Changing perspective, you mean get further away and zoom in more ?
