Took this shot of a rose with a Nikon AI-S 50mm f/1.4, though the glass is now in rather bad shape :(. Anyways, feedback would be appreciated on how well i managed to convey a feeling of dejection in this image. Comments on exposure (I feel it was slightly underexposed, maybe could bump up the highlights a bit in PS levels) and composition would be appreciated as well.

Thanks very much :)

i think the exposure is ok, because it does convey the feeling of dejection with the faint lighting. i do like the water spray that u used on the rose.
what settings did u use?

Uhm, I completely forgot :dunno: I think it was a 0.8s shutter speed. Exif doesn't register the aperture cos of the old lens so yeah. I think it was f8.

Nice composition. But the orange should stand out a little and the flower too! Overall a LITTLE underexposed :)

Convert this image to b&W and add red filter and sepia tone... It would stand out quite alot more...

convert to b&w, the whole image is in gray tone
and add red filter after this, the whole image is red color
add sepia tone to red color mono tone image...

I can't imagine how the image will look like, can you show us how to do it??

I see, you are correct about the green filter, but a b&w image of a darker shade of rose with lighter shade of leaves on a dark backgrounds......:think:
