Yes, dear loved ones, I am alive! :dance:


Haven't been here for months. Just let me tell you this: life is exciting! I hope you all enjoyed the summer. Autumn is almost here an I celebrate this beautiful time of the year with this magnificent rose. The shot is still from my early summer shooting but I still have soooo many amazing shots to share.

I am glad to be back! :heart:

At first glance, I was 'wow'ing! It doesn't look like a rose; it looks like a rafflesia! That was because of the liquid drops resting upon the rose, which triggered my curiosity and made me click.

With some closer inspection, I am seeing some great lighting techniques. I'm no photographer, so excuse me for unspecific terms, but I love how the lighting is soft and gently highlights some parts of the rose with a gentle gradient to get darker, with no sharp shadows. That is really beautiful.

I also love how you have captured the shape and pattern of the rose. You can clearly see all of the petals and swirls in all of their glory. It is rather mesmerising to look at, which is a good thing.

And the drops of water, as I stated in my first paragraph, give it an exotic look. This was a great time to go outside and snap some shots. The way that each and every one of the droplets are clear in the photograph is amazing. It makes you want to see more.

Now, onto some ways to improve. First of all, I've seen quite a few deviations on your page at this angle. It would be interesting to view something at a different perspective. I recommend that you experiment with angles to see what fits and what doesn't. Secondly, it would be very nice to try some different rose shots. Of course, that is very vague, but that's a good thing. Try to be creative. Think of a 'wow' rose in your head and then try to find something similar.

I do hope that this critique was helpful! Thank you for reading.

The golden leaf colors are so beautiful. I've never seen autumn look so juicy. I like how the middle is perfectly twisted, like quicksand or something. It really pulls you into the picture. :+fav:
