Viewed on its own, I think this is a vivid picture with an almost unreal quality with it's bright colours contrasting sharply against the grey background.However, for my project, I wanted my pictures to have a more realistic look. Technically, when editing this image in Photoshop, I think I could have selected the subject with more care by using the " refine edge" tool.
This image seems much too cluttered, there is too much going on in the picture. I could have cropped more of the image or used a shallower depth of field so only one part of the image becomes the main focus.
The grey colour causes this image to be much too "flat" It is a boring, almost depressing picture and doesn't fit the vibrant theme that I wish to produce for my final set of ten images.
The composition of the image is fine, however, I had to be quite choosy with my final images and this one didn't quite make the cut. The green of the stem against the purple is a distraction, I could have used Photoshop to cut this part out.
