Congratulations on 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, Beautiful photos.
What a beauty this must have been in the past.
Thank you for you insightful and kind critic.
I really like the creative thought that went into this photograph...decay and life and your title matches your image well. Titles do matter...a lot! Your dof gives a blur in the foreground but the egg and decay behind are sharp "as a woman's tongue" showing a lot of detail that is well exposed and easy to see!. That dof also eliminates the background well and the colour coordination does not argue with the main focal points. As you have shadow in the lower L side of the image (viewer's pov) you could have added, with a gradient tool perhaps set at 35% or less and brought in a bit of darkness to the upper right hand ...it would have balanced, in tonal quality, the whole shot yet held in the focal point. This picture is the kind of photo that the more you study it the better it becomes. Thank you for your creative post.
Thanks Vibeke, a bit of processing indeed. Several of us do appreciate to be allowed to do it here 😉
Congratulations on 3rd place, great shot and processing.
Congratulations on 2nd Place mark, such lovely clean lines.
