This entry is of a Rose taken at the internationally famed Sir Thomas & Lady Dixon Horticultural Garden. When considering this challenge I expected most entries to consist of textures of a jagged and sharp nature. For this reason I have went for the opposite. This Rose appears to be soft, velvety and begs to be touched whilst it has obvious imperfections on the petals.

Gorgeus. Would have expected to see much more flowers in this challenge - this is why.

i think sharper focus would have brought out the textures better here. I would have prefered the composition to emphasize one or the other of the flowers and the color seems a bit over saturated

like the soft tones, but dislike the cropping. be it intentional or not, the dead rose on the background is distracting. edit: bumped to 7

It's a touch soft, no pun intended, but there you did capture some niece texture there.
