Decaying flowers and an old tin box

I was donated some more decaying flowers today, so this afternoon I spent a few spare moments having a go at creating something.

Now, earlier I said to Gilly that it’s all about the light..well, almost. I didn’t have quite the light that I would have liked for this, but I could at least try and create a balanced image….

I have used depth of field to try to create some depth and lead the eye in…not altogether successfully. Let me know what you ย think!

  1. What you tried seems to have worked, Sue. On a personal level, I might have preferred the box to be in focus as well.
    Best wishes, Pete

  2. I like the composition Sue. I struggle with depth of field too. In this shot, I think I want either the foreground flowers to be in focus, or the lovely little flowers to be a bit more prominent. My eyes wandered a bit. But actually that’s quite a good description of me most of the time ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  3. Fresh or decaying – flowers are unique in their beauty. Lovely photo!

  4. I don’t mind a little fuzziness. You know me ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ And the colours are sublime, Sue. Happy Monday!

  5. What’s it like to be known as the lady you can give dead flowers too ๐Ÿ™‚ And great image by the way. You do wonders with decay.

  6. It is a lovely composition and great colours, but the out of focus flowers in the foreground do look a bit odd. The tin box is fine as is and I think the fuzzy quality gives it character. I’m not sure how you can improve on it.

  7. I don’t mind the box being blurry, but the flowers I’d like a bit less on the flowers resting on it. I’m drawn in by the tiny little flowers, seed heads in the back though – I guess I prefer things a bit more centred. What would you change? I guess I’ll have to wait and see! Thanks for the ping ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Now this is the angle of the box I was thinking of on your next image. just slightly angled and in focus.

  9. The composition is gorgeous, Sue.
    I would try to place the focus on the flowers in the foreground, but that’s is a very personal thing, because I am the one who struggles with the red colour when photographing, and don’t seem to get it right but overexposed.
