Today's rose is Ingrid Bergman. It's a large flowering deep red hybrid tea rose. The Lord of the Manor picked it out last year. It got a rather slow start because it was in the shade of the magnolia tree, but he thinned the tree so it should do better this year.
I had the same problem photographing red this time. It just doesn't look right. I'm going to try messing with the "levels" in Photoshop next time I do a red rose. Wish me luck.
