I love this photo! It is crisp and clear, yet touching and moving, in a personal way. It is simple enough that is has an impact and is very easy to look at, yet is has subtle and wonderful details hidden throughout. The creativity and expression that went into this piece impressed me very much, not only in the picture itself but in the idea behind it, the concept of "it's you." Also, the decisions made by the artist, I believe, turned out to be very beneficial to the piece: the color, the focus on the flower in the front, the overall feel of the piece is seamless and smooth. Truly an inspiring piece in it's own silent way.
This is gorgeous. The crisp detail in the foreground is set off so well by the enigmatic background. It works so well in mono too, allowing the pleasing tones and composition to dominate the image. Good choices throughout.
