13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red rose closeup in black and white

The picture focus is to drive the observer attention to the beauty of nature forms and textures. By removing the color information in the picture I intended to avoid distraction and provide the patterns, textures and shapes of the beautiful red rose.
