Today's photo is all about context.  The photo below shows a beautiful rose and foliage.  But, unless this is a boutonniere on a groomsman, which - as you can tell by the background it is not - this picture would immediately rub a certain percentage of viewers the wrong way.  The foliage curving so sweetly around the blossom is that of a weed, not of the rosebush.   Most gardeners would be horrified, rather than inspired, by this photo.  So, we always have to keep the bigger picture in mind when we compose our shots and show our work.  Generations of marketing people have been making these kinds of mistakes; missing the tiny details that change an image from pleasing to offensive.
