He is trying to get two distinctly different subjects, so neither one stands out. The fountain is done fairly well, a little crooked, but cropped too tight on the top. The flower needs more light on it.

What he has in mind is a nice idea; he needs focus on the flower and the fountain will seen diffused and will surely come out best i think; as of now the water art is focused well and the rose appears as just an unwanted intrusion....

Regards :)

I like the concept and don't have any problem with the darkness, but I think your friend has set himself a difficult challenge, although someone with more experience might suggest this isn't as much of an issue as I think.

Right now, the subject - and the focus - appears to be on the fountain. The DOF resulting from the camera settings, though, causes both the background (good) and the rose (bad) to be out of focus. However, since the rose is almost as significant an element as the fountain, being out of focus makes it an interference rather than an asset to the picture.

If your friend was able to bring both the rose and the fountain into focus, this would lend roughly equal importance to both elements. I would crop out the bud on the right, though, as it doesn't really do much, and I'd also probably add some light to the rose to make it stand out more.

The shot is probably best done in vertical orientation to eliminate the distractions from the sides. I usually borrow another cell phone and use the flashlight on that cell phone to brighten up a foreground object in shots like this. The cell phone flash is usually too much light.
