Greetings from The Critique Club!

Nice picture to comment on. Pleasant subjects. Rose so frail, so ephemere and the stone, so hard, so eternal... I wish you used better that diagonal so it would direct my eyes up instead of down. A rotation of 90 degrees Left would have done miracles. I would be very happy if you will try it at least. You should pay more attention to the shadows. The refracted light by the bottle is distracting from the beauty of the whole. Harsh reflections or harsh shadows rarely add to a picture. You tried to enhance it in Photoshop I think but something happened there as the photo has so much noise. It is more visible on the rose and on the shadows of the stones. But, overall I think you did fine, it is only your third submission. You are getting better and better. Keep up the good work.
Best regards,

not sure I care for the downward angle of this shot, gives the photo an awkward feeling.

Something about the rose itself that makes me try to get shadow or light off so I can see better. The shadow of the stone is very distracting and the bright spot above the vase is also very distracting. In spite of these it is still a very good photo.

Nice, but on second glance, you need to work on increasing you photo's resolution. And watch out for those shadows, too. They detract from your overall design immensely.

the perspective makes you dizzy ....

Very nicely laid out.

love the perspective from the top. composition is off though. and could use better focus. idea is great, execution not as strong.

Nice shot, change to angle of the light enough to include the shadow of the rose stem.

interesting composition that i like, but i feel the rose is a bit soft... 7 points

A very interesting shot... I like the philosophical slant to this one. The diagonal caused by the stem is very effective. My major gripe though is that the shot seems very noisy, and there seems to be an unattractive halo around the green leaves. I'm not sure about the negative space at the bottom of the shot. 6
