Picking the Best
I lit this scene with a soft, florescent daylight bulb. I often do that with flowers because my regular, halogen spotlight seems to overwhelm them. When roses are lit like this (and not at all from behind), I find it works best to squint at them and pick an average color. I cover the whole rose area with that color, then add the darks and lights on top of it, squinting the whole time and avoiding too much detail.
