....Hey, I know that there are no Japanese cherry blossoms in this photo, but we don't have Japanese cherry blossoms here in Germany.....So now you're seeing a photo of my favourite tea cup filled with pretty German cherry blossoms. I haven't been feeling good lately (if you wanna know why read the journal entry on my page, it could be important), so this photo doesn't fit my current mood at all, but I've felt like taking this photo for weeks........
Okay, my critique: this is absolutely lovely. The angles, the colors, the positioning. Absolutely stunning. The background is a great contrast to the focus of this piece (a cloudy background with a vivid subject), prompting the viewer focus on the Sakura. The shading of the Sakura really brings out the different tones and colors, and creates a really serene mood for the picture itself. Also the cup's design....the Sakura branches leading up to the actual real life flowers....is another clever touch to this. At any angle, really, this would be absolutely stunning, but I still love this piece truly the way it is. Overall, beautifully done.
The first thing that stands out in this piece is the elegance of the whole arrangement. The focus is on the flowers, yet the whole layout blends together perfectly. The rain drops on the background window add a nice touch.
I love the colour scheme especially; it gives the whole picture a soft, relaxing effect. I like that the flower design on the teacup compliments the actual flowers. Since the design is a darker shade of pink it immediately brings your focus to the flowers, without it the piece might have seemed plain since the colours would have all been similar.
The lighting is very well done; giving the teacup a subtle glow without taking away from the mood.
I definitely wouldn't change anything about this work. In conclusion, it's obvious you've put a lot of time composing the whole arrangement, and your hard work has paid off ^.^
