Purple Flower[edit]

A purple flower after rain.

I need someone to tell me what article to put this under, and if it would look good as a FP. I could use some constructive criticism.

  • This looks to me like a blue periwinkle - see Vinca or more specifically Vinca major. Re it's chances as an FP, personally I doubt it. This is a common plant, so the picture would need to be very good. Yours is quite nice, but the composition is nothing special - we can't make out a single full flower for instance. The closest is the central one, and that's overlapped by two leaves as well as shadows. Similarly there's no particularly well composed leaf. Also I don't really think the water helps its cause - sometimes flowers/plants look nice with a nice misting of water or a fine dew, but the great big globules in this picture simply detract from the detail we can see. It may be suitable to add to the article, but I wouldn't like its chances at FPC. Thanks for nominating at PPR. --jjron (talk) 08:30, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
