This photograph's softness brings me a nice and warm feeling. The focus is just amazing, same the colors. The reason I gave this photo only 4 stars at technique is that the flower is a bit centered and you should pay more attention to the rule of thirds. A thing I really love about this photo are the flower's shadows over the water. If there weren't those ripples on the water I would have thought it's glass. They give such a nice and calm atmosphere, and the title fits just perfect, especially after you see the droplet on the fallen petal which is in focus The bokeh in the background is also beautiful. I must admit, per total this photo is brilliant, one of your best
I've collected lots of spring blossom shots lately, I love these signs of spring. I'll be perfectly honest: this is BY FAR the best I've seen! The numbers prove I'm not the only one! Great shot Andy, really great!
