Boredom Bouquet

A boredom shot taken during a professional photoshoot. What more can I say, I liked this shot a lot when I took it and like it even more when I processed it. I've started to improve on my technique in photographing items with colour, this goes along with a few of some of my very few colourful shots. What do you think of this?

Its a good break from the usual doutone,tritone,quadtones.

I like the colors. I even kind of like the background. But its not the most amazing shot. Im glad you are doing something other than portraits. smile
hey jide,

this is a great shot. i really like the way the flowers hang over the basket. i particularly like the details of the basket and the contrast of the basket against the flowers. great job on the blurred background. if i could make one suggestion, i would recommend cloning out that white thing at the bottom left of the basket.
Liking it a lot..And keep the white thing at the bottom left of the basket...It's nice, doesnt distract..

The display of flowers is lovely, but the image could be a little tighter. I find the gal in the background out of context with the subject. Now if she'd been dressed formally, I might feel differently.

The title fits the image nicely. The flowers look like they think it's just too much effort to stand up.

For a boredom shot, this is very good, the girl in the background really adds to this shot, good DOF. Thinking hard of getting this lens. tongue

Beutiful still life. I like the narrow dof and the woman in the background adds another dimension to.
