hmm i'm undecided. i like the way you're trying to use the subtle lighting. but in my opinion it's made the image a little too flat and "grey". It's taken a little bit too much detail and contrast out of it for my liking. sorry to sound so negative!! i've been nice on plenty of other photos of yours though Grin

Hi Liz, just managed to see this properly - was looking on the laptop using battery and it looked rather dark. Now I can see it better it looks fine, subtle and moody but nice!

I think this image is asking to be in landscape mode-- The lighting is subtle, as are the colors--think it would like some stretching up space---love the black bg and your pinstripe stroke! Jennnnnnnn

I don't know what software you use to download and re-size your images, but if you can, have a look at the histogram somewhere. I would be surprised if it wasn't baised heavily towards the left, darker side (ooh, that sounds a bit Star Wars!!)

At the moment, the image is too dark overall - you need to stretch out for some lighter tones in the flower. Not far, but it needs a push. That great shot is still there, it just needs a tiny touch of some brighter tones.

If you have something like Photoshop Elements, have a play with the Levels tool and see what you can do.

Oh, and go for portrait orientation, and see what you think.

I hope that is of some interest and help.

I like the low key effect on this one, its a different approach but still works well. As for inspiration, I think we all feel a bit that way after a winter like this one . Spring is just a few weeks away and inspiration will abound

This is a super shot!
Dark and moody with a hint of colour breaking through.
I admire your effort as shots away from the "accepted order" can be met with unnecssary suspicion.

Great shot Liz, looks too dark in the thumbnail, but when viewed large it is spot on.
