Hello Paula, I'm no expert, but i think that your have photographed this scene fairly spot on. Long story short , if i seen it in a shop for sale , I'd buy it. Well done mate. Vision,Technique,Originality and impact , its all there.
Besides, do you believe its a good photograph? If you do, that's all that matters then isn't it. There requesting a 100 words and im struggling to do that so if i babble on a bit please forgive me. It would also be nice in color to i think.
Sepia is another good format. But you probably know that already. Have a good one. P
I like this a lot. This picture is simple but it doesnt make it less special. I like the soft focus on the flowers.
This picture also gives me a certain feeling of loneliness. Maybe that's just me, but the flowers are somewhere on the side of a sidewalk, everybody can see them but no one really cares. They're just part of our daily view on the street. So I love the way you've focussed on something we see as 'normal'. We take it's presence for granted.
You surely have skills in photography! Keep going and improving you're on the right way
