16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Better with time.

I got the rose on my graduation day in a photo school where I study (I still keep doing that after finished a short course), so I wanted to take a photo inspired by a photo of my teacher. And I took the photo two weeks after I got the rose, because flowers get better with time like a fine wine, they look even more beautifully textured and that looks very good in photos!
