I have been looking for an excuse to shoot this quilt made by my daughter's Aunt Jenny. Didn't do much to process. Levels / Desaturate / Contrast / Crop / & a Tiny Dogde

Photo shot with Nikon 50mm 1.4
I love this lense.

You have to many colors competing against each other and the composition is out of sync. Take a look at it image it being black and white no colors just the shapes the angles what would work in that image if you kept it like that?

Very good DOF. Just my opinion but you should try this again against a white background, it might make the blocks pop much more, as they are so colorful but seem to be competing with all the colors of this background. But I can see you were going for a colorful shot here in which case my suggestion may be mute. :-)

If the photo had something with a soft focus in the foreground to indicate a 'Shallow Depth of Field' I would have given it another point.

Fun background, or underground, or whatever. The quilt was a great idea. Lots of fun colors and lines and shapes here. now if only I knew what these were . . .

Lots of color and a good shot, but it seems a little to busy, color wise.
