Texture winner

Gwen Neff is winner for this week's SunShots theme, "Texture," for a closeup of a yellow rose. The image was taken with a Nikon D5200 using an 85mm lens at f.8, 1/200 sec. and ISO 100. Baltimore Sun photographer Algerina Perna critiques, "The yellows have it this week for the win. Neff's overhead angle reveals layer upon layer of the rose's silky folds. One can almost feel the smooth, soft texture of the flower just by looking at the image. Filling the frame with the bloom brings the eye directly into the flower without a distracting background."
