You know what I love about this one, Sudarshan? It is just 3 flowers on a stem. But is speaks volumes. One flower flanked by two others for support, or three aspects (avatars) of the same being. All holding on to one branch, one belief, even in a world of thorns...

OPINIONS

Hi Sudarshan, you have got a beautiful contrast there! Have you used Photoshop to blur the background ?

Beautiful pic....an excellent capture of nature at it's best....
Tells me that "innocence " "honesty" "goodness" stands out despite the harshness and coldness which prevails .

lovely, sudarshan... the contrast of the colorful flowers against the brown almost sullen background and those thorns....

composition-wise, the flowers are bit too close to dead center for me.. I might do a bit of cropping on the left and bottom to see how it looks (?)

firstly, I agree with squirrel on the crop to shift the flower a bit lower ...

excellent oppurtunity,good light and beautiful backdrop and the dried up leaves along with pink lushful flowers ...just fabulous

I am unhappy with the metering of light on the petals ... it is overexposed and hence the soft details of the petals are washed out ... if metering is difficult use u'r judgement and underexpose it by a stop or two.. though it depends on the light and where u meter it ..

well! when such wonderful oppurtunity comes along shoot many more snaps with different settings so u may not miss out on something much greater ...

Ahhh, me not a photographer, so can't say anything technical , lol ! woefully ignorant about photography ! But
what i DO want to say is that i loved the contrast of the flowers with the thorns on a blurred background..the caption 'Beauty and the beast' comes to my mind

i will agree with everything that kishor has said! the flower is a bit overexposed and a different crop would have done a lot to this pic..

@Suyog: Absolutely no post processing...I used slides!
@JPR: Thanks for the description. I have no choice but to agree.
@Squirrel: Thanks. I will check on that.
@Kishori: I really value your comments, thanks...I should have bracketed the shot and maybe as you and Jess say brought down the flower a bit to the bottom.
@Pincushion: Thanks...your interpretation is valuable.

dreams,reality,one gives ua smile,another gets u to the harsh truth,contrast but then shows the hope,maybe someday,something might get back the smiles,let anything go wrong,but smiles will be back...

This is wonderful...reminds me of one day when exiting my barn on a snowy day...I looked down and in the snow was a dandelion. Alive.

Neels and Becky: Guess it was an opportunity badly missed. Though the picture says so much, composition wise as most of my friends have mentioned, it hasnt come out well. Thanks

I know nothing about composites or lighting or exposure. I do know beauty. When's the next pic coming???

The next pic is composed close to the place of your origin....
