Urban landscapes: the city rose

BLOSSOMING ROSE, OTTAWA, ONTARIO

Looking back on this photo, made in 2013, I find the composition quite interesting with the darkness at the upper left and the giant blossom dominating centre-left. I think what made this design work is how the darkness and the soft-focus leaves add a strong sense of depth to a telephoto scene. (You can see a close-up of the blossom here: http://bit.ly/OttawaRose.)
