A good try at composition. You could do with just a small group of blooms in the foreground, though, rather than so much bush, then less exposure on the background to reduce density. There is a lot of potential here, and I would expose for the background using the flash to illuminate the flowers.
Thank you for taking the time to help me, Paul!
Yes, you are completely right, too much bush! I notice now that you say it ...!
I will try your suggestions as soon as my balcony is not under snow ... The use of flash is still a complete mystery for me, I definitely need to work a lot on that.
I really like the juxtaposition between the old of the church and the fresh of the flowers. the use of subdued color for the background also works really well. I agree with Paul in as much as you haven't made the decision prior to taking the picture exactly what your subject is and it's relation to the frame. I have uploaded a modification to show how a change in cropping/positioning can yield a very different result.
Next time don't be afraid to hold the camera on its side. in this instance you would have been able to still have the background as is, but also got a lot more of the flower in the bottom of the frame as well.
I am really impressed at your version of my photo!!!! Thank you!
