Roses Overload

If you don't like colourful roses, then now would be a good time to go do something else.
After Valentine's Day I treated myself to a bouquet of half-priced roses. What else could I do but have a photo session with these flowers. I tried a variety of settings and angles and then later, did some creative editing.If you have a favourite then please let me know in the comments.
Because of the larger number of photos,I will not be adding many words.
I have numbered the pictures so you can tell me which ones you prefer, if any.

1.Simple bouquet.

2.Getting closer.

3.A different angle.

4.Adding a soft filter.

5.Desaturation filter and looking at the base of the flowers.

6.Desaturation filter.

7.Soft focus and black and white filter.

8.Full color and using a lens ball.

9.Desaturation filter and lens ball.

10.Soft focus.

Hope you enjoyed the roses.

Something to think about:
Your mind is a garden.
Your thoughts are the seeds.
You can grow flowers,
Or you can grow weeds.


  1. Oh I love them all, but two and four are lovely!
    That is an awesome quote for the day, thank you for sharing.

    Have a beautiful day ♡

  2. So cool to see the types of photography you did. I want to get one of those glass balls!

  3. There is something about the soft focus full color that really appeals to me. Glad you treated yourself and now your blog friends with these gorgeous roses.

  4. They are ALL stunning shots, Ruthie...the lighting is fantastic. I am partial to the soft focus...soooo gorgeous! I love doing photo shoots with flowers! Hugs!

  5. Adding a soft filter! They are all gorgeous, though. I do like the ones in color the best, so you can see them in their full glory!

  6. I'm not sure it's possible to have a rose overload. If so, we have problems in our yard. I love all of your photos, but the first one is probably my favorite.

  7. I really like 10 and 2 the very best. Its fun to be creative with photos.

  8. Gorgeous Ruth, there is nothing quite like having fresh flowers in the house. My favorite pictures are the ones with the lens bowl, they are stunning!

  9. Wow they certainly are beautiful. My favorite is the very first one.

  10. I could not pick a favorite if you were paying me...I like each one. On any given day, it would probably depend on my mood...but today I just like them all.

  11. I really like the first one. Of the others, I think I'm leaning toward the soft focus shots. But they're all just lovely. You got your money's worth out of this bouquet. ;)

  12. They're all gorgeous! Something about the position of the roses is number 3 makes it my favorite.


  13. Wow, wow, wow!! How I do love roses! Each photo is favorites

  14. Each one is beautiful in its own way, but I like #10.

  15. they are wonderful, I even love them in black and white and in the ball to... if I had to choose just one, it would be the up closer shot... I think I can smell them

  16. What a lovely to bunch of roses to treat yourself with... and have some fun photographing them. Good on you!!

  17. Beautiful roses, Ruth. Treat yourself more often. Diane

  18. I love colourful roses. I have gee pots of them. These are lovely

  19. Good Sunday Evening Ruth. These are such glorious photos of the roses. As I scrolled down, I kept thinking each one was my favorite. I guess #2 is my very favorite. Our move went well and I am slowly catching up with blog friends. I hope the week ahead holds many blessings for you. xo

  20. I tried 2 times to leave a comment on this one several days ago --but Blogger had other ideas....

    Anyhow---my favorites are No. 2 and 10 --with No. 2 being my absolute favorite.
