Unclean by darkdex52 Unclean by darkdex52
Because sometimes no matter how much your friends or family say they love you, you still think you're not worthy and you're broken.

The rose is withered.

Take from my Rose in Rain photoset that I posted earlier on my Tumblr account.
Took it while I stayed home alone during Līgo celebration and a thunderstorm started out of my window.

My equipment used:
    Canon 1000D/Rebel XS 18-55mm kit lens

I love this image and your wording to this is also very heartfelt and is very fitting. I relate to both.

For me personally, all I would suggest for this, is that I'd like to maybe see just a little more light, either on the subject, or the background made lighter. I feel this would accentuate the subject a little more. :-)
This is beautiful work and I will fav' it and feature it on my page. I am a fan of your stunning work, for sure, it often takes my breath away. :-)
I hope my critique is OK, I haven't ever done one before. :hug:

I love this picture. It describes many people of the world. The lonliness, sorrow and darkness that slowly rots away their heart, preventing it from blooming. The technique you used has made it as if we are looking at ourselves. The shine on the dewdrops also give us a feeling of hope as it reflects the light on the wilting rose. I would give this a 10/10 for the originallity, technique, vision and impact. Well done, my good sir. You have inspired us all. And this is my first critique so I hope it is to your liking. Once again, well done. :bow:

Very neat. I like that you zoomed in close enough and had obscured lighting so the subject is a bit more abstracted. Lets the mood take over.

Wonderful capture in B & W with a lot of contrast and with an original shooting corner. Your photo makes a lot of emotions : love, purity, sweetness, peaceful. Your photo is a pure beauty !  ;°)

awesome photographic artwork
Fiend-V Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is beautiful.
I love the way this shot turns arund the classic image of the rose. The symbol of beauty, purity and perfection is magnified until it is unrecognisable, the lack of colour only emphasising the otherness introduced by the layer of droplets (to me, at least, reminiscent of scales). It makes one wonder how many other roses look like this when separated from their familiar, comforting bouquet, and how many other observers have the courage to get this close and find out. In one word, amazing!

This is an absolutely beautiful shot, I think there are a lot of people out there that understand this same feeling that you convey in this image,you are very talented,don't write yourself off so easily everything and everyone has a part to play in life, focus on the positives and look for the light within yourself.

I like the almost leathery texture and the paradox of a flower with waterdrops being unclean :faint:
