Drop carrier. by dragonfly-oli Drop carrier. by dragonfly-oli
This picture was taken in Kartuzy, Poland.
We had two days of sun and 5 days of rain, and one day I brought myself to go outside with my camera. Well, old habits die hard, but I did it and took this picture. After that, I escaped into our house. :aww:

I hope you like it!
Every kind of feedback is warmly appreciated! :heart:

This is a great shot - it really captures the delicate orders of nature.

The composition is well thought out and executed. My first impression was that I was seeing the same plant twice - once in the background and again in the front. The arrangement of two different plants with similar structures makes for a neat effect - it seems to help the foreground "pop out" so to speak.

Most important of all, though, the artist did a great job capturing the serene peace and quiet following a long rain. Through the complex, but undisturbed drops on the stems - and the quietly hanging drops on the leaves, the photograph effectively pulls the viewer into the scene and invites them to enjoy the calm.
What do you think?

To start off nicely, I really like the impact it gives away. The simple blur effect once again delivers a magnificient shot of that picture. I like the fact that the other plants in the background are the same. However, you make the eye contact with the one on the front.

Emotionally, when I see this picture, I feel empathy and sorrow; the colours given with the context, here being rain, makes the impact of the picture stronger.

On the other hand, I would've played a little with the contrast. If the picture was a bit darker, you could've really hit a spot where the emotion coming out of it was sorrow and depression. Of course, no one wants to feel that, but it's just a little tip I would give you.

In sum, really great picture, great technique, amazing impact, I give it a 4 on 5.

Irgendwie muss ich bei dem Bild an traurige Liebesgedichte denken... Wirkt unheimlich melancholisch. Ich mag das...
