A rose, times two

A couple of dog-walk photos from our local park last weekend.  I can’t decide which one I prefer.


The colour version probably has the better (or at least more conventional) composition, but the imperfections on the leaves draw my attention from the flower.  The monochrome version (below) appeals to me more because it draws attention to the bloom – even though it doesn’t adhere to the rule of thirds.  Well, we know what they say about rules….

South East London-based, I work for the National Health Service but try and fit in some photography on a regular basis. A ridiculous and expanding number of cat companions provide some photographic material when the going gets really tough (it's the internet - gotta have a cat photo) but the almost-grown kids stay as far away from the lens as possible!
