Nick, this was my first entry at dpc, and it, also, was an attempt at humour. The challenge title was Holy Places, and I titled mine Unholy places.

Voter's here aren't forgiving of bad pictures - even when humour is the point.

Sorry guy's it was a bad attempt at humor. The "Get Well' was meant for the flowers. They looked pretty sad.

Coorful - but a litle too dark

The background is very dark for a "Get Well" card.

No offense but those flowers look like they are on the way out.

A good idea, fits the challenge well. The flowers have some vivid color, but overall the exposure or lighting feels kind of off, maybe you used on board flash?
I can't tell if the background is wood, or what, but it seems a little distracting. Good focus and clarity, but overall, I find my eye struggling to find a strong point of interest in the shot. I realize the arrangement overall is the subject, but in this case, it feels lacking, and I as the viewer, am wandering, searching over the image. Perhaps there is just a little too much, too busy. Some of the flowers look kind of droopy and ill.

This whole picture just looks so dead! The lighting seems to scream, "Sorry about your plants' loss of sunlight."

For a get well card, the flowers look rather dismal and overall shot is rather dull.

Rather looks like flowers on an old wooden tombstone. Nice color though but disturbing imagery for "Get Well"

I understand the concept of giving flowers (even on a card) as a get-well-gift, but these flowers look like they've gone a few rounds with my four-year-old. On a technical note, the light from the on-camera flash is very harsh; perhaps you could soften it a bit next time by taping tissue paper or a plastic spoon over the flash. The background is very distracting - I keep trying to figure out what it is rather than simply taking in the photo.

sadly the flowers look worse for wear...

Shame about the dying flowers. I know you can do better then this!
