Here I went a little further than the usual in the photo post-edition, in a result that resembles a little the feeling and look of painting specially because of the hard edges of the elements, but the colors also help with such effect.
I find interesting the color composition in this photo, the yellow tones on the up right part of the frame makes the image more lively and distributes our attention in the overall image in a subtle way. Our eyes always go back to the main subject in the lower part of the photo, the flower in focus. Above it, other flowers form an imaginary line which feels like turning around the yellow tonality in the photo, and between the yellow and the white spots of the blurred flower on the extreme left side. I feel whenever my eyes look up in the photo, this line formed by the flower queue kind of naturally brings my eyes back to the main subject. Such effect is pleasing and I guess it is what makes it comfortable to look at.
