Great detail and the glistening hairs are nice. Good depth of field.

Very nice micro with great detail, DOF, Focus, and lighting but I see nothing bizarre or anything that makes me wonder in amazement. You have a great picture but imo I does not meet the challenge.

Yikes! I spent two days taking cactus pix in Tucson last week - these are NASTY looking spikes! Good shot!

The detail of the hairs adds a nice emphasis to the spikes. Nice background.

I like the depth of field. I'd perhaps have cropped less off the top, though. Great Shot! 8.

Very interesting. A pretty soft focus though, and what seems to be glare is dtracting from the texture. It certainly is bizzare though 6
