War of the Roses

by Kay~Kacey on 1/19/2009

You know how SuperGuy and I get very a bit competitive…

… when it comes to photography?

… we both try to capture the perfect shot?

It appears our competition this time, as it often appears to be, is flowers.

Well, we seem to have the War of the Roses going on in Palm Desert. :roll:

Go ahead and tell me which photo you like best…if you dare. I’m not going to say who shot which photo. Sigh. I do so love going on photo shoots with SuperGuy though. It’s such fun!

My favorite is #2. Easily. Keep shooting! They’re all lovely.

#3, then #2

But someone has an unfair advantage to win because there’s an odd number of photos given!

I like #5.

Hm…an odd number of photos… never thought of that. Oh well.

But isn’t it wonderful to see real live blooming flowers in the dead of this gray winter???

I’m not even going to look at the choices of the other commenters. But for me, it’s #5.
I like the composition, the color of the flower, the addition of the bud to the left. This is the one.
(apologies if it’s not yours).

My fave is #2, followed by #3. I like the angle of the sun shining through the petals in #2; I like #3 because I am a huge fan of macro photography that concentrates on a portion of the subject rather than on the whole. To be fair, it was a tough choice – they are all great!

I choose #2. With the mountains and palm trees (I think) in the background, it’s quite lovely!

Claire January 19, 2009 at 12:00 pm

Number 2 for me, with number 5 as a close runner up!

Melissa Marsh January 19, 2009 at 12:24 pm

I love #2. The way the light is captured in the petals is just gorgeous.

Shirley January 19, 2009 at 1:07 pm

I think #5 is the best. Don’t have any particular reason, just like it best.

#5. or maybe #2. Love ‘em both.
You are so lucky — it’s snowing here right now. Yuck.

#2 is my favorite.
The perspective of looking up at the flower makes it more interesting to me. Orange and blue are opposite on the color wheel, thus go great together. Blurred mountain background is nice. Rough orange wall to one side gives nice textural contrast.

Bottom line….”it purty”

Flea January 19, 2009 at 4:33 pm

I think I love the last one best.

Dru January 19, 2009 at 4:37 pm

I like #2 then #5

Jacque January 19, 2009 at 4:40 pm

#2 for me

Tug January 19, 2009 at 4:56 pm

I LOVE #2, although they’re all beautiful.

Deb January 19, 2009 at 5:07 pm

#1 is y personal favorite.

Amy A January 19, 2009 at 6:59 pm


But they’re all great.

Cheryl January 19, 2009 at 7:20 pm

I like #5 best, then #2

Gayle January 19, 2009 at 8:10 pm

#5 is my favorite!

KP January 19, 2009 at 9:07 pm

, 1, 3, 2 & 4 – whoohooo, they’re all great! :!:

cgreno January 20, 2009 at 2:24 pm

#2, my pick, the #1

Chere January 20, 2009 at 10:23 pm

Love photo number 5. When do we find out who took what? Have fun with the competitions.

TSannie January 22, 2009 at 9:05 am

2, 4, or 5…Dang it! They’re all good!
