While going through my 2013 photo files, I came across an unnamed folder. After scrolling through it for a bit, I saw this photo and decided to use it for the blog. The photo was a bit too bright, so I darkened the shadows slightly. Then I cropped it using the rule of thirds. I like the blurred background, and lighting cast on the rose.
Please give me feedback. What do you like/not like about this photo? What could I have done better?
