Post Re: Flower

Although perfectly executed I think the personality of the flower might suit a white background.

It may help if I said that the shot of the red rose you had published suited the black but I think that's because Red Roses are equally a Romantic Offering and a popular Funeral Flower. Because of that the black background took me to the funeral side.

In contrast I have no such feeling towards this flower and my gut instinct is that the black background doesn't suit.

Definitely a take it or leave it subjective comment but great study of this flower.
