First and foremost it’s the aesthetic that grabs me and holds my interest. It does not take over the picture but rather hooks my interest and encourages me to look deeper. When I look deeper I see beautiful soft natural light illuminating a palette of organic earthy colors. The dead roses potentially represent different things to different people. I like pictures that offer the viewer opportunity to exercise their imagination and draw their own interpretation. The real strength of this picture is her gaze, not directly engaging the viewer but yet her expression still manages to attract attention.
