- The maker has an interesting concept for this image. Unfortunately, the blurry leaves in the foreground hide a good portion of the frame that contains the objects of real visual interest. The maker might consider cropping in from the left and up from the bottom to eliminate as much of the blurry branch as possible. It appears as though the image was captured in very bright light causing parts of the image to be blown out.
- While the lilies and water are beautiful, the out of focus leaves that occupy much of the photo are a huge distraction
- Good idea. To get to the Monet genre, this needed to be much softer with colors bleeding into each other and remove the vine. Try again. You can do it.
- Lovely lily pads & blooms. Focus too sharp for comparison to Monet's impressionist works. Blurry foreground leaves are a dominant compositional element & distract. Some blown out highlights. Nice use of diagonal groupings of lilies & lily pads to lead the eye through the frame.
