Sure does look very 'painterly' and very well composed. Maybe straighten the windmill??

Thanks for your input.

While our world is faced with a grave existential threat due to the COVID-19, all forms of art,including creative photography, may seem like a futile escapism. But I find that every ounce of energy spent on art, nourishes our inner resources and hope. The poet Tagore had once said (even though it loses its wisdom in my translation below :

"The rivers that lost their streams
in dreary deserts
on their way to to the ocean,
I know deep within,
that they were not in vain."

Stay well,
Snehendu

I like the composition of lines, flowers and the windmill. The sky is very complimentary. I find the flowers over processed and they end up consuming my energy as I view the image.   Posted: 03/10/2020 19:52:50

I really like the color and composition. Flowers seem over exposed on my screen. : )   Posted: 03/11/2020 10:15:48

Just what I am needing on a rainy day. I agree with Mark about straightening the windmill.   Posted: 03/25/2020 09:04:20

I like the composition, perspective and the color palette, but I think I would have preferred the original, un-manipulated image.   Posted: 03/25/2020 12:03:11
