i agree with most comments. it's a beatiful pic but hardly any white there.
there is a lot of potential in this idea but, in my opinion , the red rose should be in a larger size, including more details of the flower, otherwise it's not very interesting.the way i understood the challenge, the white color should be of the subject itself and not in the artifially made background
Steve Throndson: Excellent photo, and just right for the challenge. Congratulations on your first place finish!
hi, steve, thanks for the encouragement.
Bird drinking from a fountain - is it acceptable ?
A square format, elimineting the red distraction, will improve this colorful, sharp pic.
Most of the roses in this callenge are frontal.I prefer the more original - profile.
I prefer to place the subject at 3/4 rather than at a quarter of the pic . In any case I think there is too much blur that hinders the wonderful picture of the flower.
A beautiful pic, as Ruth mentioned a little crupping from the left, and in my opinion from the top too, will improve the outcome.
I think that a square formt will fit better the shape of your's subject and will eliminate the blur at the top of the pic.
