|another try in sepia... I think that this one is nicer :)|
Very nice. Good composition, perspective and DOF. The sepia works very well. I think people often do not sepia flowers because of the colours, but flowers have the shapes and texture to make good sepia shots.
It's nice to be experimental with the medium, but it's more difficult to make an outstanding image in sepia or black & white. Contrast, tones, texture and shape are all we have to work with. So, what's "wrong" with this one? It's a little soft, which loses much of the texture element, and the contrast between the subject and background is rather low, which doesn't emphasise the shape. Also, the crop could be tighter from the top. I've tried a quick workshop on it to give an alternative interpretation - I hope it's useful.
