Canon Challenge - Make It Gloomy

The them today was make it gloomy and of course we had a perfect spring day without a cloud in the sky. Not sure if I succeeded with the challenge today but I was pretty gloomy when I got home from the flower market yesterday to find all but one of the petals from my poppy had dropped off on the way home.

The centre of the poppy is still perfect - and makes for a great picture!

Ha ha! I took my daughter in law a bouquet of tulips one time and by the time I was ready to leave her house the petals were falling off. I went straight back to the store with the bouquet and they gave me a new one that was perfect. This photo is too pretty to be gloomy, but maybe I could say the background is gloomy, just for you! I like the gloom, fav! Lol.

I would also be gloomy if I found all the petals were off the flowers that I had just purchased. Makes for a lovely moody capture though.

LOVE this. Excellent processing. I like the matte finish.

Isn't that always the way? When you need light there is none and when you want gloom all you get is brightness! Nevertheless a beautiful and somewhat gloomy photo. The lack of petals makes it gloomy but you have captured great detail in the center of the flower

I think it would be even more gloomy if you converted it to black and white. It is a very sad looking bloom.
