I'm not really a flower kind of guy, but I had a play around with some iceberg roses this morning. Not the easiest to photograph, being fairly monotone in colour. These specimens were still on the bush(my wife would have killed me if I cut them off), so wind and bright sun made for quite a challenge. I also had to make do with the background I had, so I have had to burn in the background a bit to make it more acceptable. This is also the first time I have added some water droplets. I hope I didn't go over the top. I even managed to capture a little native bee in the first one.:p

I like the two water droplet ones. The first shot seems a little dull and doesn't make the pedals stand out like the others. The weather here is still cold so I can't get out into the garden yet to practice flower shots.

I like the second one, AntZ! :) It's so symmetrical....
