I rather like it. Especially the lighting and the concept :]

This needs some explanation. I changed the title just before submission and forgot about the comments written earlier. There's actually a story behind the picture to explain why a rose on music is an unexpected find. My friend is obsessed with the movie <u>The Phantom of the Opera</u> and I listened to Liszt often at the time, and I guess the romantic gushiness rubbed off--this is the story about the shot: a pianist comes back to her open music book to find that some one (perhaps a phantom) left a rose. Maybe I should have tied the rose with black ribbon or something.

Now I have to finish reading Orwell to get rid out of my sappy sentimental mood.

I think it would have been nicer to see the rose from a different perspective and to see the notes in front a little less fuzzy...
