I took this photo a macro setting, of a rose in my room. I liked the colour and detail this setting gave me. The background seems a little washed out and gray compared to the foreground. This might be avoided by using a different angle for the lighting. I was speaking to someone about light set ups and the standard set up consists of a back like and two side lights. This way it means that there are less shadows cast by the subject. However if I wanted to put enthuse on the shadows I might use a light source from one direction, placed closer to the object.
