Greetings from the Critique Club...

Hi Bridog :)

This photo is well executed and it meets the challenge nicely. The only area where I think strength could be added would be in the choice of colors used. The color combination in this composition isn't complementary. The red and blue don't work as well together as blue and green or blue and yellow may. It's just some food for thought :) Another compositional suggestion would be to use an odd number of flowers rather than an even number. It would upset the balance just enough to create some additional dynamic in the composition...

Nice work :)

A different approach but I really like this. Love the way the light forms a nest for the flowers.

The softness of the flowers and rigidity of the red light seems mismatched to me. I think I would like this more with a different type of flower.
