Rose Bush: Me vs the Color Red

Partial view of our rose bush this year. I have been shooting red roses for years and it seems the color red is not my color to capture. Very frustrating. Something about red……no matter what technique or approach I use, it seems to always end in a near miss at best. The proof of that is above :-). My best effort or result to date, in my opinion, is a shot I took 10 years ago with my Minolta X700 35mm film camera. There was a black background and the rest of the image was fairly dark, but the result looked pretty good.
