Not too sure about this one. I feel it's a bit feeble looking, so your thoughts would be appreciated.

Unusual, but soft and nice. the background does not quite work for me.

Nice idea, but for me it just doesn't work. The under exposed and washed out look just looks to lifeless.



I think its very nice image, I really love the overall processing. I think if anything maybe slightly more contrast for my liking but nice as it is Smile

I love the tones of the flowers in the foreground but wonder if a bit more contrast or a different background might help the rest of it? Overall though a good idea for an image. Lou

Thanks all, you've put down what I was feeling about it, so confirmed my initial reaction after I'd been playing about with it.
I shall look at my RAW files again & have another play.

I agree about the b/g. Perhaps a plain white would be better. I do like the pastel shades of the flowers but it seems as though the stone could do with being smaller, because it looks a bit stark and sharp in contrast and overpowers the flowers. If that's what you want then fine but to me it kinda jars a little.

I'm not entirely sure about the placement of the flowers across the bottom of the frame and the rock being so central. It's still a nice image and a great idea, perhaps it needs a bit more experimentation.

HTH, Goggz
