Towards The Light by MaaykeKlaver Towards The Light by MaaykeKlaver
An old photograph from the winter. Took this with my Canon 400D and 50mm lens.

It's been a while since I wrote a critique, but this definitely deserves one!

I love several things about this photograph;

- I love the depth of field and how you've made the flower (or remains of the flower) stand out with the focus.
- I'm usually not a big fan of centering your main subject, but in this case it works great!
- The blueish tones are a great contrast to the orange/brown/redness of the flower
- The lines on the right side of the photograph really give it an abstract and/or surreal peace, almost like it's hidden somewhere, at a place most people usually don't pay attention to, awesome!
- And I'm usually not a big fan of watermarks either. I mean I use them as well, because these days we're almost forced to use them, but yours is very lovely and it's not distracting at all. My compliments!

Overall it's a great shot and I can't think of anything constructive to say about improvements, because I simply don't see what you could improve =)

fantastic vision and realisation. Not just 'a close up of a plant or flower' that ypu can find milions on DA. It's complicated and tells a real story.
