Lucky for me, simplicity is always beautiful…

"A red rose"
“A red rose”

Day 169

Keep it simple stupid, or “KISS” is a mantra from a program I hold near and dear, and exactly what I needed to do for myself today.  I needed a subject that couldn’t fly away, blow or sway in the wind, or frankly require a lot of effort or planning on my part.  I knew it had to be simple but beyond that, I had no idea what I was going to do for my photo until I ran by the store today.  I will say that I’ve never really been a big fan of red roses, but when I saw these I just couldn’t help myself, the red was so vibrant and the bouquet so beautiful, that I knew I needed to enjoy them and I knew I could do that while photographing them too!

I used in Camera HDR processing on my Canon 6D (with Macro lens) to achieve this effect, and in post-processing I applied a vignette and mild sharpening.

“The beauty of life is in each precious moment!  Stop and smell the roses.” unknown
