When I see this photo, the first word, which comes to my mind, is "drowning". I love the way those flowers have lost their beauty, and their life, the way the hand is resting unable to move, just drowning in nothingness. The old photo effect makes this piece of art even more melancholic. It is so ghastly beautiful, and breathtaking. This is a picture worth a thousand words. I don't know what kind of technique you use on your photos, but I love the blur on the edges, and how my eyes focus on the hand and the flowers. The lighting is great, because I can see what I am allowed to see, leaving everything else in darkness, adding more mystery. This photo holds so many feelings inside; it feels like “surrender” and “anguish”. Great work, indeed! I love it how all the elements blend together, creating this beautiful masterpiece with a poetic tone.
