Hi! This is a lovely shot :love:

One of the first things I love about this photo is the atmosphere. It's got sort of a romance theme, but the way the rose is positioned and the dramatic lighting makes it a more depressing scene - therefore adding somewhat of a story. The dark purples and vibrants reds/oranges add to this as well! :nod:

I also like how the background seems almost like a spotlight to the foreground, with the lighter streak in the middle and all. :la:

However, I think that the lighting could be better. The lights in the background are overexposed and distracting to the rose, and the rose/foreground is too dark to notice much detail. I feel like there's a major lack of detail.. perhaps you could've tried a little lower angle, and have the bokeh towards the middle/top of the photo so more focus would be on the rose. It's a very busy photo!

Nice work though, I like the idea! :love:

What was once together, now is shattered. This flower should have bloomed, now it lays broken on the floor. Was it not meant to be?
A very nice shot, a diversion, adding a romantic feel. This is a work to leave your fantasy going, inventing stories, happy, bittersweet, sad, whatever one likes.
