I Don't Want To Be Happy by darkdex52 I Don't Want To Be Happy by darkdex52
Lately I've been an idiot and making some really stupid photos. I think my sCRAP book will get bigger than ever >__>....

First I have to say we are all our own worst critiques when it comes to looking at our photography, or our art. This photograph you took has some very dramatic effects coming from the use of the darkest shadows at the bottom. The flowers seem to create a gradient effect of their own with the dark purple, to lilac, to lavender, a difference in the color values. The yellow only gives it a focal point for the viewer to start from and work their way outward from the "center". The differences in shapes of the flowers also helps to add to the distinctive gives it great line movement. The visual effect on the large purple flower actually looks and gives it the appearance of it being textured.

Overall, this is a very awesome shot. I love it.

Oooh, I LOVE how the yellow pops and brings the eye to the dark purple, with a lovely contrast to the lighter purple behind it (: Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL contrast and transition of the colors. It's gorgeous~ ^^

The atmosphere is great . It reminds me of when I saw this pet store's  fish tanks and it was dark. I enjoyed it.

The contrast between the flower in focus and the others in the background works well in making the title appear to be the condensation of thought of the dark purple flower :meow:

That and...I really like colours :P

uh-oh, what a freaky one! a little bit scary and a little mind. in the front the big petals are so... scary? yeah, it's the most expressive word for me, and in the background the little, light flowers are more calming. so, the contrast is perfect. grat!

Most real photographers feel guilty with generic flower pictures. The challenge is to make one that stands out. I like this one, because I have a soft spot for macros and the color purple. But it's not all purple. That splash of yellow adds something special.

Purple flowers are my fave by far, so naturally I was drawn to this image. It's wonderful, the snap of yellow amongst all the dark purple really draws the eye.
