I took a couple of photos for for part of a commish, and I thought I'd publish this outside of my Sta.sh
I would LOVE critiques/constructive comments. Please don't feel shy, as long as you're tactful and nice about your corrections, I'll always be willing to listen!
EDIT: I played with the background - what do you think? I can send you this version too watermark-free if you like this one better
Canon Rebel T3i/600D 50mm Macro filters (I forget which combination I was using here ) Construction paper (black for background and cream to reflect light to the back of the flower) 10$ Small shop light from Home Depot

I simply adore the contrast of the color against the background and how it has a simplistic, cool beauty about it. There's also a subtle contradiction in the feel of this piece that I enjoy, of the flower and the feathers. The depth of the field is wonderful, and I felt the softness is a pleasant change from most shots like these that I come across, and has a soothing atmosphere as well. I also appreciate that the flower is off center, it creates a better focal point and sticks truer to nature. I feel this is an original piece that is brilliantly executed.
