This is a beautiful photo, with gorgeous use of lighting and subtle colours. The detail captured is amazing, in both the reflections of the droplets and the delicate veins of the petals. The blured background makes a perfect backdrop to the image, helping it to both stand out and blend in to the colours with out being lost. The image has the effect of conjuring up the feelings and senstations that I associate with flowers and such stunning works of both nature and the artist. Overall the imapct of this image is fantasic, and the depth contained is simply breath taking. Congratulations!
This is by far, one of the best photographs I have ever seen. I love the way the purples and blues merge with the light pink. It gives the picture a lovely look. The droplets of water are so pure and shiny and I especially love the way it reflects the beauty of the flower. It's so elegant and beautiful. You have picked the perfect lighting and angle for the flower to show it's full beauty. If I saw this from another angle, It would not have been that amazing. But YOU manage to make it looks amazing. I LOVE this piece. I tried to do a painting on cherry blossoms in fact, and I used those exact colors because it gives the flower shape and beauty. You've picked the right flower.
I think that this shot transgresses the visual boundaries of a normal photograph. The lighting, which enhances the subtle, pastel colors, also brings forth a vivaciousness which cannot really be described, but more felt. This is a truly stunning piece of work. As a writer and poet, I can only envy the precision and talent the photographer has and utilized in order to bring this shot to life. Despite not being remarkable or exceedingly unique, it is still very elegant and speaks in volumes to the viewer. I'll certainly be looking for more of this artists work. Very well done!
