I've had this rose probably as long as I've been living in Vista, nearly 2 years. This rose was pinned to the wall of my office. It was about to fall off the wall, I needed to capture the last moments it stayed around. I felt the pedals dwindle as I checked the quality of the rose.
Set Up: Canon 7D II with Canon 100mm 2.8 shot at 1/160sec, f/2.8, ISO 1250. All edits were done in lightroom 5. Desaturated, brought up the shadows, tone down the whites, bumped up the clarity. Single light source from the sliding glass door on a cloudy day.
