OK it's not the most inspiring image...it was actually one of my safeties from the morning. But what I do like - and no it's not about showing off the PL25's sharpness or bokeh ;) - is the play of the sidelight on and in the budding rose.
Desaturated the colour a little as I'm not a fan of the garish ;)
I thought a rose appropriate for a symbol of the blossoming New Year....and they are probably even more often the subject of photography that cats...so will testify to the tolerance of SC in the year ahead ;)
But honestly I am trying to be more mindful of light as the subject of an image....rather than the solid objects that it illuminates.
