I quite like it, there is something distracting but i can't put my finger on it.
I'm assuming that the shot is during the day time, and the little specs are just dust.. but it has a very nice feel to it like stars. Even the bottom of the pot adds to the effect, feels like a reflection of the night sky. Very nice.
Each to their own, it does nothing for me.
Black and white with grain or a nice dose of lomo action and it could be different.
I like the simplicity - it has a nice feel to it.
If it were me, I'd 'clean up' all the spots in the water - because they're high contrast they draw attention.
I also would have preferred the lip of the pot to be in focus.
it's an engaging shot if i had any photoshop skillz.. i would try to change the colour of the drowned flower to white. imo, the spots in the water adds to the shot.
edit: maybe burn the bottom right a bit so the line/crack isn't too visible.
Yeah, my issue is that I have absolutely zero PS skills - I just tinker in LR until things look good. Photoshop melts my brain though.
I would have liked the lip of the pot to be in focus too. Sadly I had to shoot it wide open as the light was fairly crappy, so I needed the higher shutter speed.
Cheers for the CC guys. I'm fairly un-creative most of the time, and any of my decent shots come from photographing people / bands. I was just glad that I had a little burst of creativity come through with this one and it landed me with something half decent.
