Youthful glow

I'm back and hopefully will be posting on a consistent basis throughout the summer.  I had a lot of fun with the background on this one.  I wanted to keep it soft and blurred to make the rose bud pop.  Enjoying my blurry circles.  With the bud, I worked to get the smaller detail to help make it the focus.  

Reference photo was taken on May 16.  These peach roses were in full bloom on the path leading from the Dawn Redwood to the lake.
