Oscar Wilde - The Nightingale and the Rose
I took so many rose photos this last week that I got in a romantic mood while downloading them from my camera and processing a few of them. Anyway, I don't remember how but I've find myself reading Oscar Wilde's "The Nightingale and the Rose". And I wept and wept because of the nightingale's useless sacrifice. It's a shame I know, romantics is not trendy these days but you have my word, it felt so good.
Here is a red rose bud picture. It is SOOC, as most of my photos, except cropping.
I feel something is wrong with this picture but I have no idea what to change on it.
Please leave me some feedback on this, if you are an experienced photographer or just a beginner.
Thank you all for the nice feedback and good advices, I'll try a few.
The white and colorful patches come from the blurred out roses in the background. I was too lazy to process them, that's why I mentioned that they are sooc.
As I mentioned in my other post, there were so many roses in this garden that I was not able to isolate individual ones, so I just cropped the picture.
Have a great weekend!
