He Loves Me...........

 'He Loves Me............'
(Do you get it?  I mean the title?)

Sometimes an image is more interesting when the subject is not perfect or it is different than what you'd expect to see,  like a repetitive pattern that is broken.  Imagine a row of blue beach umbrellas, perfectly spaced and lined up along a beautiful beach.  That would be lovely, but it would be more interesting if just one umbrella, maybe a bright yellow one, broke the pattern and stood out in the middle of the blue ones.

 I think that most photographers would be more inclined to take a picture of a 'perfect' flower rather than one that was damaged or had some of the petals missing.   In the above image, I think the flower in focus, the main subject, is more interesting with just one petal missing.  (No I didn't pull it off before taking this shot, but I might have if I'd thought of it!!)  Does it bother you that the flower, as the main subject, is not perfect?

I find it interesting that I was so busy enjoying the beauty of this flower in the light, that I didn't even notice the missing petal until reading what you wrote!!

Not at all.. we should embrace and accept imperfections.
Your image is stunningly gorgeous, Karen. I love the colors and composition. Beautifully done!

I like it just the way it is.Life isn't perfect so pictures don't have to be either.

I think most photographers are inclined to agree about the beauty of imperfection. Lovely shot.

Beautiful colors and the little imperfection adds a lot of charm to the image.
