I will have to deviate from my normal style and put all my categories together as this is not an ordinary piece.
First thing to catch my eye were the colors. Such a rich tone and what makes this different from all the others of this nature is the Shadows. The dark shadows create this rich tone that draws you to the photo. Then there is the depth of field. The nice bokeh from the sun and how you managed to capture the light bending around the petals making it blur add to the drama from this image. Almost a surreal mood you get from looking at this capture.
Although not completely original in context the way it was captured makes it stand out from the rest. Great job on this! Well done!
I personally Love this! The focus in this is incredible and perfect with the background. The color in this is great, just such pretty color for these flowers....may I ask what they are? Also, is that the sun in the background? One would think so but it is hard to tell and gives the person that is looking at the picture guessing a little. The lighting is very well pictured and I love how it makes it so you can see the shadows of some flowers through the shadows. Beautiful picture and I hope you do more! Very well done!
