Oh, I love this! The deep burgundy tones against the graytone background, the texture in the drying rose against the grainy wood, and the strong composition are all superb! Great shot, Stephen:-)

Superb image Stephen...the desaturated background really puts the focus on the dying flower. Nice diagonal comp as well and I especially like the grain in the wood! Good work! :o)

ah, but the beauty has not faded, only changed- it is beauty on an unpretentious level, a very honest level.
there is a sense of permenancy, not anymore in the act of "becoming."
the photo is quite emotive- a reminder that moments of beauty in youth are fleeting, giving way to more delicate and rich versions of ourselves.
It's a wonderful image all around, Stephen :-)
