The first of a short series of observations made in Montparnasse Cemetery in Paris.
Interesting shot Bill, great composition, to me it looks like the flower is kissing and hugging the stone, but that could just be me with a lack of caffeine
The tones in this image seem to convey a sense of memories lon gone. The faded almost dessicated rose is a photographers dream, superbly shot.
Quote: Poignant image.
My thoughts too. - gary
Must be the ''grottiest'' flower I have seen on site Bill !!
While it is nice to see them in full bloom and full colour,
I feel the ''grotty' ones are sadly neglected as uploads here.
They won't grace the cover of Gardeners Weekly,but as a study
in texture and lighting,there is a place for them here I feel !!
Lovely how the ivy has grown over the granite and the dried rose does look like its kissing the stone Hugh. There's some interesting shadows in this too............Sandy
The wilted flower gives a sense of loss. A thoughtful image Bill.
Excellent use of dof, drawing the viewer into the shot.
A well composed poignant image Bill.
'Agree with Sandra's opine.' Superb DOF enhances 'the image thrust of the photograph, & smoothly captures the 'perusal of the Eye.' Elegant & artistic shot.
Quote: ...looks like the flower is kissing and hugging the stone...
That's what I thought when I first looked at it! It does convey more a sense of loss than a fresh flower would.
Those particular flowers are an added bonus Bill...... Right place..right day.
Yet another nicely composed picture Bill.
The decaying flower adds to the poignancy of the image Bill, amazing angle,
Wow! A GEA! a big thank you to answersonapostcard.
Past with the past , well done Bill
decay with the decayed Bill, excellent
Beautifully produced image Bill, perfect composition and technically 'spot on'.
Powerfull stuff Bill.
Awwwww, love this.
EVERYTHING IS TRANSIENT.....................
"Congratulations, Bill, on your 'well-deserved GEA' ." "Life is always 'in continual Flux,' & Our Photographs,...'capture only a Moment In Time'."
Congratulations - a well deserved award Bill
Beautifully smooth granite and crisp dry petals and leaves - a wonderful contrast
so sad and so beautiful
Beautiful image with strong emtional impact...excellent.
A beautifully simple tribute to the departed Bill, and you're image does that tribute proud too. Why I've never commented onthis image I'll never know, but better late than never my friend, I'm sorry for the omission.
Well spotted and taken Bill.
Excellent stuff, Bill, love the composition.
The composition is delightful.
A well earned award Bill.
Very though provoking, super image Bill x
I actually do like this too !
I like the rose is pointing down; I "like" it as a dead rose! I "like" the message of sadness that the whole scene evoques. The contrast between the gray stone and the green leafs ... again, just helps so much to send the message accross !
This is not about composition, it is not about the message, only! This is about the whole!
Sad message; great photograph!
well put together bill---i might of lost the shadow in top left corner?
Quite a poignant image Bill that has been well taken.
