I don't like the grain or the focus.

This looks manipulated to me - allowed in this contest? otherwise rather good

Not sure I really get the connection to the title except for the blossom part but the shot is much to noisy and out of focus, the cropping needs to be more angled, so maybe the corners of the book run from one side to the other, half book/half background. The light is also over exposed on the center of the book. This is a great idea, just needs some fine tuning. :) A 2

perhaps more of a light source on the flower would have been a bit better

This all-out explosive amount of grain isn't working for me.

the forced close up and pixilation are really problematic here

Impressive grain! I like it!

This picture is so dark, unclear and filled with noise. I have no idea what your focal point was. This could have been an alright photo had you gotten something clear.

Like the grain, and the book. Why bright blue background? why not darker to add emotion to an emotional title?

IMO, the graininess distracts my eye and doesn't work on this shot very well.

Hmmm... Is the book the Bible? I imagine that the graininess is intentional, which I like a lot. Perhaps if the background was darker, the flower would stand out more thus representing your title better.

was the graininess on purpose? nice colors, a bit too much contrast, wish the text would be readable, but then I kinda like it the way it is 7

Why the grain/noise? I don't know that it's really adding anything here. The light is a bit harsh. I do think your crop is very good.

intersting idea, but too much noise, insufficient focus

So much noises on this one? What happened?
