Symbolic work but decided I should probably put it in flowers rather then conceptual galleries. The relationships symbolized here regard what is tempting but deadly.

first of all, love the concept since is something with which i feel really identified since i'm a damn Gemini :D haha
Referring to the photograph, apart of the great work done in composition and focusing, i "marvel" at how you wonderfully edited it since i find nature (flowers and all that) full of subjects so hard to edit most of all due to the bright and vivid colors, you let us clearly see the wonderful toning of the image but without feel over saturated with the oranges and purples with the obviously loss of detail, something i really look for in my works in this kind of photographies :-)

Haha, glad you like it :)

These wild roses are naturally pale and delicate in their saturation, under exposing slightly helps to control color channel clipping and that's what I did here, and in this case the afternoon sun was so rich with gold color that the underexposure does not hurt the image. So I had it lucky, there are other times where a flower's saturation mixed with the color of the sun make it almost impossible to shoot well.

Yeah! :D I still remember a day shooting flowers, it was a really sunny day and i thought it could help a lot but the flowers were of a "brutal" vivid orange and took me nearly an hour to understand that placing me between the sun and the flower covering it with my shadow was just the best i did
