    Dying Iris

    Hi All,
    Thanks for viewing, any C&C welcome.
    Should I have used a different crop? Should I have used a different exposure?
    Does the picture depict a specific mood?

    Andre, the exposure seems fine to me. Maybe it could be a bit brighter. The image has a clarity and yet softness to it.

    Does it depict a specific mood? I'm not very good at this, but if anything to me it depicts endurance, persistence, of not giving up just yet.

    I feel it is not fresh enough to show it's natural beauty.. and not dead enough to explore that side of it's cycle.

    Leave it and revisit in a bit when it starts to dry up.

    Hi Serge,
    You have said what the picture depicts, persistence in not giving up its beauty yet. Thanks Serge.

    Sharon,
    These flowers have a life span of less than 24 hours. They do not dry out on the stem, they fall off and all the beauty is lost. Here is a photo of a fresh one, just for you.

    Thanks for the input, it is appreciated.
