I like this concept but feel your focus has let you down. The thumbnail look realy inviting, but when blown up one find it a little blury. Everytime you try something, look closely andsay to yourself is this the best I can do. Hopefully you will see what needs to be done, by learning from others, who have given you very good advice.

Nice idea. Need to work on your closeup focusing a bit, though.

A very unusual entry.
I can see the fit to the title, but overall isn't realy much here in clear focus, or sharp enough to show much detail.

Not sure about the selective color on this one. I think maybe the green was needed

Focus feels soft... even on the top where it seems like it ought to be sharp.
