the center of the flower is intentionally dark.
I like the lighting, but a bit of detail in the dark center would add a lot.
I like the monochrome colouration, but something about the composition makes the flower appear very heavy and bulky, not 'beautiful' in a classic sense.
thanks for the feedback, Rere. I took out the detail in the center intentionally, but your opinion is valued!
i think i was in a very dreary mood when i edited this. i like that it looks dead, at least, i get a very "dead" feeling when i look at it. and im very happy with it.
thanks for the feedback, alex!
Any thoughts of colorizing the leaves????
I love the texture in the petals, you can almost reach into the screen and touch them.
what does that mean?
for what it's worth, the original is in color if i didnt state that earlier.
Colour? Meh... I really like B&W flower shots!!! I find that you can really gain texture and great tones in flowers even without the colour! (Not that I don't like colour flower photos sometimes too!!) :O)
In this shot, I really love the texture and the lighting is nice too...maybe it's a personal thing, but like someone else said--I'd like to see a little more detail in the centre!
the colours and sharpness are both lovely. however like alex b said, theres something about the crop, i think its too tight (cutting off a few of the petals). just my opinion.
^ thanks for the feedback!
