About the Image(s)

We were in Stuttgart and I came across this display in the entryway into a shop. I only had my phone with me. I really didn't do anymore than crop a very small amount. I hope it brings a little brightness to your day.

Hi Jamie!
This would make a great postcard!This photo really shows what a good phone camera can do! As soon as I saw it I wanted to decorate some corner of my condo in a similar way.

The shelves of course create perfect thirds, and the white flowers lead our eyes up and down. I love it.
I don't know what the original crop was, but I kind of whish that the bottom layer of empty jars was less visible and the top row of flowers was more visible. I don't know what you started with, but maybe a little more play with cropping.
You might also want to play with bright reflections on the top row of jars, just bring them down a little and see how that looks.   Posted: 08/10/2019 18:05:03

I love your comments, ideas and thoughts, Alison. I'll go back to my original and see what I can do...mostly crop the bottom. I think the top was the same. Thanks for your kind words!   Posted: 08/12/2019 22:16:01

Hi Jamie! I agree with everything Alison said. The only other thing I have to say is I wish I would have been in Stuttgart with you!   Posted: 08/12/2019 15:41:38

Wonderful image Jamie and good use of you iphone. Would your image and its appeal be stronger if you isolated just a section of it? I cropped down to one shelf to see how it would look.   Posted: 08/17/2019 11:57:06

I really like the color and the light on the glass vases. There is a little keystone effect and maybe the horizontal needs straitening.This is just very pretty and refreshing.   Posted: 08/19/2019 08:12:55

Jamie, I would love to see any revision you make.
I just posted a variant of my own picture in this round.   Posted: 08/26/2019 10:42:34

Thanks Alison! Long story...in the midst of moving pics from my MAC to PC, I discovered ALL my photos are missing. They have to be on a hard drive or backup, but we are not able to access them. This was an iphone shot but I was using Lightroom to process it and I can't do that. We're out of town for a bit and once we return we'll take it to a professional.
I'd like to share as there were so many good ideas, but not this time. I'm sorry.

Oh, that's too bad! I hope you can recover your laptop! What a pain!
