Oh, I just love this shot! The empty foreground and the darkness almost seem like you are secretly viewing this hidden place for select eyes only. I don't know if it has a touch of Topaz (as I don't have but want), but the almost glow is fabo! Excellent shot!

Fantastic shot. I like it more each time I see it. It feels like the viewer is part of the image, lying on the floor.

not sure why, but the empty images to left and center (and the darkness on the bottom) make the flowers on the right all the more poignant. I think the perspective gives this power.

This is special. I've tried to analyze why, but can't quite articulate it. Anyway...

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: This is lovely - the slight glowiness, the way the flowers are tucked away in the corner - the foreground negative space that forces us to keep our distance and creates a sense of furtiveness... all very effective. The toning is particularly nice too.

Critical stuff: Nothing.

Overall: I really like this. The empty bottom half of the image makes it for me.

The creaminess of these tones is delicious. Love the light, and how it leads the eye to the flowers.

Iím loving the low lighting and perspective of this shot.
