Walking by a tide mill I saw these flowers that had been discarded and trapped on the edge of a weir.

It struck me as poignant.

Poignant and transitory, both good descriptions of love and life in general. The flowing water, though, seems to indicate that everything gets washed clean at some point; refreshed.

After shooting a large number of attempted bubble shots, hand held at the beach, I can sympathize with your dilemma. It is a poignant scene - yet it probably needed a tripod to reveal its true beauty.

I gave this a 7. I don't generally like rose shots because it's too cliched of a symbol, but the water is creating major distortion here, which adds a lot of interest for me. You also have strong diagonals in the composition.

And sometimes when I look at this I imagine the bubbles are issuing out of the rose like notes from a small sad bugle.

A really interesting composition, I like the movement of the water and colours. For me, what would have made this image is if the head of the flower was in focus. I think thats what my eye is really searching for here and what may have helped your score :o)

My first picture with over 450 views . . nothing compared to many of you folk, but I'm delighted. Now I just need someone to love it and make it a favourite . . .

The flower seems too centered.
