This week’s wallpaper features a pale pink lily and its reflection on the surface of the pond, with cream lilies in the background and blurred ivy in the foreground. It’s a beautiful flower, but what I really love about how this image turned out is the drama provided by the strong, blurred foreground. The composition isn’t according to rules, by any means, with the focal point in the dead center, but I think that it comes across rather well.
This is also a much darker exposure and a much busier composition than I normally choose for our bi-weekly free wallpaper. However, I find that darker images often work really well to help a wallpaper to not be too distracting, and this, I feel, makes up for how busy the image is. It’s a striking image of a very pretty subject that is framed in a dramatic way, and that really makes the image appeal to me more and more the more I look at it (which is an excellent quality in a desktop wallpaper).
