I think you had something here but have some minor faults. That black thing behind the flowers kind of distracts and seems a little out of place. The scissors and flowers seem to be well placed but your colors are very muted. Not sure if it was to hide the fakeness of the flowers or just not set correctly. I think I would have liked this a lot with those minor changes. Good luck

Could be sharper and have better lighting.

I like your flowers. Your scissors aren't in the pic to much.

the subject of this shot is clearly the flowers, so in that respect I don't feel like this fits the challenge very well, but that's just my opinion. You still have scissors in the shot which technically makes it fit I guess. I think this would be a decent shot more closely cropped and without the scissors (which would make it unsuitable for the challenge...I'm just talking in general) as is though a 6

I think you've nailed it! Beautiful composition. All the elements are there but except for the scissors (which look natural in the setting) the other elements just seem to blend in subtly. At first I felt your background should have been solid black but after a while I started to like your out of focus blurred effect. Gives it depth. What is that back there anyway? Are you at the shore? Love the picture. Good Luck. 10.

Good picture. I think it would be even better if the background had just been black. The light on the right top is distracting to the eye. Good lighting.
