    Everyone seems to love this image. Can I be the lone critique ? I really do like it but I find the flower group on the left to be distracting. It keeps pulling my eye away from the main group. It probably wouldn’t be any better but, I would like to see it with the group on the left cloned out leaving the black as a counter point to the white flowers.

      Thanks Charles. Critique is of course also appreciated! I kept the left part in to give it a bit of balance, but you do have a valid point. Although it is out of focus, it does distract a bit. I am not sure if cloning it out will help in this case however, because of the other group in the background. I’ll have a look at the original to see how I cropped it.

    beautiful Johan and I love the trailing off of the flowers into the background. Regardless of what i said earlier, I think the group on the left provides balance.
