Nothing is as exquisite, I think, as the beautiful curves of flower petals with sunlight playing through them. This is my second entry into the curves contest. Hope you enjoy. Photo taken with Canon Digital Rebel XTi with a 75-300mm telephoto lens. The soft focus is partly depth of field, but also using OnOneSoftware's focalpoint1 photoshop plugin (see

I agree, yet, disagree buddy...sorry!! An outstanding image of beauty with wondrous lighting and folds, just perhaps not a 'curve' type thing to me. Luv the set-up on the take with the darkened backdrop workin' on the left for room for icons!! A superb & pleasant desktop wallpaper!!

Why do the pictures come out square when the lens is round??

Most delicate beauty of a flower ...

Nothing to worry - the image IS very beautiful !!!! LOL

There are so many roses posted, one has to come up with something unique in some respect in order to get noticed. This image has it. I don't know what it is, the presentation for one thing. It's just different. So is the texture and color. Excellent. Keeper.

I think the passion of this photo comes from the lighting. Creating the soft gentlness of the feel. Excellent job Nathan, and good luck with your submissions. :O) -Mike

Much of the beauty in life is found in people who care.
