Reply ↓ Class photography boss!!! Super work… Reply ↓ Joshi, This pic is very good. Loved the feel it is giving when we look at it. One small suggestion… The comments section looks very dry with both colours very similiar to black. I think you have put them deliberately, but you can add some whitish tinge to both the ash shades and brighten up this page. Ignore if not found relavant :) Reply ↓ omg !!!! love it…. deep…. !!!!!!

Reply ↓ I really like the composition, wonderful idea :), congratulations ! Reply ↓ Compelling image, Joshi. Reply ↓ cracker! love the rose. Reply ↓ Yo Joshi! This one couldnt stop me from commenting!! Focus is absolutely sharp, which is one of the most important features in this photo to strike attention! I guess you’ve used a dark (maybe blackish?) filter, which really brings out the contrast! Another thing is the water is really still. This makes it look like black oil – another striking compliment to contrast the red rose. Ground texture has done a lot to enhance the quality and the rose too is nipped at the right length! Angle at which the rose lies brings out the intended emotion. Wonderful! Reply ↓ Awesome shot! Reply ↓ Una bonita composición con un excelente tratamiento. Me gusta la imagen. Bravo. Saludos Reply ↓ Wow great photo. Reminds me of a movie poster. Reply ↓ The dark contrasts and tones with the contrasts solitary red rose create a dynamic mood. Excellent angle and framing.

Reply ↓ This picture has an interesting concept to it. It makes you wonder the story behind the story. Why is the rose there? is it the symbol of a broken heart? The lost momento of a wonderful date?
