About the Image(s)

The seed head and light appealed to me. Do not ask me what the plant is as I do not have a clue.

Hi John, This is a very interesting photo.I like the way it shows `life' in the seed head vs decay in the leaves. My main suggestion would be to darken the background towards the bottom of the image to make the main subject `pop' more.   Posted: 06/07/2021 10:18:46

Hi John, The cone is very sharp and is so interesting. I would leave the picture as is. In my opinion, the lighter background towards the bottom allows the dead petals to show more.   Posted: 06/07/2021 18:17:05

Hi John,
Great texture in the leaves and seed head. I think that wilted and dried flowers and leaves have more character than fresh blooms. I like the warm color of the seed head against the green background. My only thought would be to darken the two bright areas behind the seed head to give more definition to the subject. They are the same color and blend into the seed head.   Posted: 06/09/2021 18:40:34

Nice crisp well light photo. I suppose it could have a statement about continuation of life but I just enjoy the image with highlights well captured.   Posted: 06/17/2021 08:50:44
