Margrit Gunnarstein

A very different rose from the last one (The Rose by Paul Toussaint) featured as the {daily pic}. This is a very straight forward, lovely still-life: Margrit has captured the unfolding of the pink petals at the decisive moment, if I may make a joking allusion to Cartier-Bresson. I think the softening blur around the outer edges works very well. I like how she has held the detail in the middle, the petals’ edges, the shadowed definition and the gradations of pink in the sensually layered orb of the eternal bloom.

One word: Promise.
