paint a rosy picture

On assignment today I happen to catch site of the roses growing next to the Tracy Library. I knew they could make a pretty picture but the background was a jumbled mess of parking lot and cars, what to do?

Backgrounds can kill or cure a picture. The easy solution was to use the background to my advantage. Getting in close I used the book drop box as my background. Its solid blue color provided a pretty backdrop for the red and green colors of the plant. A long lens and tight in-camera crop isolated the flowers for a pretty picture.
