Burning Lust by Xerces Burning Lust by Xerces
Don't you just love red roses? I saw some gorgeous small roses today in a florists when I was out shopping- so I couldn't resist getting one for some nice macro shots as well as my up-coming "thanks for 900 watchers" image (Only two more watchers to go :-))
Here, I have used the bast thing since barbed wire which is my Canon EFS 60mm f/2.8 macro usm lens and a black background. This is the second one to be put up from the shoot. Please check out the Diptych of the both images- links below. They were seriously difficult to separate.


ALL images will be available as prints- Wishlist adds are much appreciated!

I absolutely love the contrast between the vivid red colour of the rose and the pitch black background... Fantastic shot.
