Life after Death

By mandarinkay
The tulips had gone over but a few of the petals had fallen onto the windowsill, and they were reflected. I thought they would make a nice simple image just 2 of them so gave it a try! Would love an opinion as this is something a little different for me! Thanks as always for all previous comments, all very much appreciated. I hope everyone is keeping safe and well with all the dreadful weather we are all having! Take care all, have a safe weekend!

Such a simple yet incredible photograph. I love the color! I love the emotional ties to the photograph...makes me feel like it is so delicate and sad because its death...LOL...does that make sense?
