Woo-hoo...my PB to date!!! AND 24th place!!

Thank you to my husband for putting his suit on and sitting patiently while I shoot!

My Dad taught me how to tie the money bowtie when I was a kid....I borrowed the 'rose'.

My intent all along was to only have a cropped version, but after I cropped it, it looked boring. So I tilted it and it made an amazing difference to the photo.

My husband didn't like the skin color, but I didn't think (or didn't know how to) I could fix it in Basic Editing.

Great idea, but I think it was let down by the lighting and the details. The flowers leaves look a bit cheap.

Very Creative, The red in the skin draws the eye away from the subject a bit. Maybe an overall vignette, or desaturation of the skin. Keep up the good work!

I admit I don't care for the background, but the angle is very interesting, and the concept is very cleverly portrayed. Well done.
