Remove the caliper and caliper mounting bracket then it will just pull off. If it's stuck there are a couple of threaded holes to use to press them off....m8 iirc.

There are two bolts that hold the caliper to the caliper bracket. There are two bolts that hold the caliper bracket to the hub.
If there is nothing "in the way" of the rotor from coming straight off, then you never separated the caliper from the bracket.
The rotors can be very difficult to remove if they have been on for a long time. They rust to the hub. Use the technique that Mark suggested. Other ways which can be destructive if you are not careful are to use a pry bar, or hammer.
Mine were rusted on tight. I sprayed some penetrating oil between the hub and the rotor, and also at the base of the wheel lug bolts where they pass through the rotor. Did this repeatedly over a half hour or so. That helped to get them off.
When I put the new ones on I put a very thin smeared coat of anti seize on the face of the hub.

I'd get a rubber malet and whack the outside edge not the part that touches the brake pad. Thats what I do and it hasn't failed me yet.
