"Fragile Red" ~ Interestingly enough the part of the photograph that grabs our attention immediately is not actually red but white, pink and yellow: yes, the flower itself with its paper thin petals and its slim but fleshy yellow-tipped stamens. The red comes in later in the spider-web veins of the leaf on the right and in the delicately folded back outer petals of the flower. Is it a "fragile red"? Yes it is, but in the sense that the whole image is fragile: fragile and sensuous, a moment in time. The depth of field that gives us a sharp foreground and a soft, blurred background adds to the sensuality of the image giving an added impetus to the aperture of the flower and its visual offering. Within the soft feminine open folds of the pink white petals we find a very masculine exuberance in the stamens. At the same time we are very aware that we are looking at a precise moment, a moment that will not last, a moment that will vibrate for a brief instant before curling in on itself and dying. It is a moment stolen from the normal passage of time by the lens of a camera and one that leads us to reflect on the ephemeral nature of life and of love itself.

I love this shot, although I feel that the closeup flower pieces are a bit like cheating, as it's hard to screw them up, the beauty is so obvious, and the content of the genre rarely varies. Where this image stands out, however, is in the details that bring a sense of reality to a typically dream-like scene: the contact between the petal and the leaf; the sharp focus on the edges of the leaf and the second flower. These details come together to make the image very personable, and the almost monotone color pallet give a comfortable feel. Although I don't feel a huge emotional impact when I look at it, I do feel almost as if I knew it already, which is a very difficult feeling to fully convey in any medium. If this was your intent, I'd give an overall rating of 10, easily. If not, it's still a solid 8 for composition. :-)

Excellent use of depth of field to draw the viewers attention to both the flower and the leaf. The leaf brings a sense of balance to the picture making it that much more inviting to the viewers eye. The sharp focus of the stamen as well as the soft white petals catches the viewers interest instantly and makes a good focus. The red and white gives the photo a pleasant warm feeling that I thoroughly enjoyed.
