Great shot...there is so much here to occupy the viewer without being overpoweringly busy.
Great expressive worth...your editing is very good cant wait to see more of these.
Well this was a great success. There is so much to see in it. Great story telling.
you know I love this image..
J this one is a winner.
Yes, life for plants is a permanent struggle, and beauty cannot be separated from the thrown that were useful to protect the growth. Nice layering.
A rose among the thorns... Very creatively and beautifully done, Jenene. The title and Phil's words do make me appreciate its beauty and its strength even more. It's a postiive thought and I thank you for that. I'm truly impressed. Voted.
Beautiful work, Jenene!V
This is a very creative and stunning image,Jenene.Voted.
Well, once again you lead me in the right direction. My first choice for title was 'Survivor' (and I think I will change it). After living with it for awhile, I think I got off track from my original intent. Thanks, once again, Phil.
Your title implies imprisonment, yet I see this wonderful image as a metaphor for support and survival. The thorny branches are part of a flower's life line and protection. A watery context envelopes the image, appearing as both drops on the blossom and a reflection featuring a superimposed screen of watery sky and branches. That overall screen functions as nest and nourishment for the blossoms. Nests are places of nuture and rest. Water is the lifeblood of a plant. So yes -- to me it is more about nature's survival mechanisms, not about an imprisoned spirit, plant, or life.
The rose will win ;-)
