Glad you didn't, this is gorgeous! I kind of want to fall into this flower and pull its petals around me, just very inviting. Perfectly titled. :)

I really love the softness about this photograph. At first I was unsure whether or not I liked the soft focus but after looking at it for a while its one of my favorite things about it - it makes the photograph look more gentle and definitely suits the title. The colours are beautiful also, I love the gradient of pink throughout the flower.

You certainly have the eye to catch the beautiful little things in this world. While there's thousands of "flower shots" out there, your composition abstracts the subject enough to make it interesting. I find myself focusing on how sensuously the petals wave together.

From a technical standpoint, I'm really curious to know how you lit it. The softness of the lighting really accentuates the tone.

Also, there's something about the color and your title that reminds me of baby lotion... it's pink and soft too :)

i did want to make it more abstract so im glad you got the feel. The lighting is natural indirect sunlight, the shower shutter speed helped to light up the background and give the pestles a nice shade and of coarse some post processing in photoshop.
thank you for the lovely feedback :)

I love how soft the pinks come across in this piece. From the pale peachy color in the background to the dark pink shadows, it's quite beautiful. I also like that you didn't shoot the entire flower. This section is interesting to look at, and while it strikes me as a "flower", the partial view also lets the viewer make other connections.

Great shot!

Definitely more abstract than normal, you should do more shots like this! It's really beautiful!

This is a really neat shot! The soft colors look really nice with this kind of piece, and the close zoom looks lovely!
I do think the piece could be sharpened overall, and that the contrast could be made a touch darker.

That aside, I think this is a beautiful photo! :D
