Very nicely done! I love that the flowers and the branch are in focus, which the background is fuzzy. It really makes them stand out. The buds look lovely through the filter effect that you have used. It almost makes the photo look sad, in a beautiful sort of way. The photo is aptly named "Shine On," as it seems like these flowers are shining on through the darkness that the filter creates. This photo has a very nice vintage vibe to it, which is one of the most appealing types of photos to me here on deviantart. The composition is also very lovely, as the focus isn't centered on a single flower. Having the branch angle through the frame was a good choice, as it creates an aesthetic harmony to the rest of the shot. Wonderful shot!
first off i must say, i am a lover of anything vintage, and you my friend have mastered the vintage photofilter. this looks like it could have been taken with an old 35mm. i love how its not completely sharp, but that the background balances that out with the softness. i dont really think that i have to explain much about my i gave yuo the stars that i did because this shot is quite breath taking, but again, im a sting when it comes to lighting. and a nazi when it comes doen to orginality. your picture is amazing and i would be very proud of it if i were you.
