Always nice to see roses with some decay on them; it shows them in a phase we rarely see in rose photography; and you've captured both full bloom and decay in the same shot. The colors are beautiful too---the cream-accented pink on the left, and the cream accented---what---peach-tan? on the right. (Can't find the world...I love the color.) The background has a deep but gentle yellowish tone, which is rich and warming. And your crop suits the long shapes of these partially dying roses very well. A very sweet capture, Harry.
