I think I'd like this more with a white background. Still a good picture though.

I don't like the green in the background. Good take on the challenge though.

Even though the flower is in focus, the stem keeps bringing my eye to the vase as the main focal point of the image. With the vase beeing so OOF, it's kinda distracting.

This looks like a really good picture, but it's too small to see any detail. I think you'd score a lot higher fif you used all 640 pixels.

Hello from the Critique Club!
......................................................

When viewing challenge images I like to see shots which work outside of the competition - normally a sign that it's a good shot regardless of votes. This probably suffers in that respect, mainly due to the skewed arrangement, blue colour cast and rather centred composition. The set-up clearly shows balance but it doesn't engage the viewer much beyond this, which ultimately is what may win votes.

I would ask; why the colour treatment and why the background? If it's difficult to answer then it's probably what many voters were wondering too. I would have chosen pure white or even a very dark colour and shot it from lower down, avoiding the shadows on the background too. This would demonstrate the balance element more dramatically. Since you can't easily hide the fact that the fork was tucked under the spoon, it could have looked more impressive edge-on (90 degrees).

Cheers
Jon


Thanks for the Critique Jon. The reason I chose the background and the color, was because it covered up the crummy setup I had. I wanted a pure white background, but didn't have what I needed at the time. You're suggestion of a dark brackground and angle I could've done and I think it would have improved the shot a lot. Thanks again.

OK, I know the song, and this picture represents that verse great. But I don't see "balance".

Great take on the challenge. I think you should have pushed the plant back on the other side of the fence though.
