This was a very beautiful image. An elegant wilted rose in the darkness, and beautifully composed too. I gave it a 10 and I have no idea how it landed so much down in the rankings...

Well processed. Looks like a painting and very well done if that is the effect you were looking for.

I like your idea of using a wilted rose for this challenge. The composition is great. The only thing I'm hesitant about is the borders.

One of the most stunningly beautiful photos I've seen on this site.

Awwwww, so sad. Why do I hear music from beauty and the beast?...lol.
The .75 border line is a nice touch; very subtle...

This image is strongly reminiscent of Van Gogh's "Vase With Dead Leaves" //www.vangoghgallery.com/catalog/Painting/668/Vase-with-Dead-Leaves.html and from a technical standpoint is artistically and technically perfect. Superlatives fail to adequately describe the powerful impression made by this image. Well done.

Light is just great. Love this and it will make a really good poster.

Long forgotten Rose........I like the idea, the composition here is very good. I feel the rose is a touch dark. I understand that you want the overall image dark, but at least on my monitor, having it a little (just a little) lighter would have made it and its details stand out just a bit more, and would have made it better........

I like the border you have applied, simple and elegant, as a rose should be, and provides a contrast to the subject that works well
