Very dried up milkweed pods. I love the rough texture they get, after being all smooth and green in the spring and summer.

pp: NEF conversion, crop, rotate, NIK sharpening. That's it!

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that fulfils the challenge brief

We donít have these interesting pods over here Susan so thanks for enlightening me. I like what youíve done with it. Your DOF and focus is good with the front portion of the pod nicely separated from the background. I like your composition, the shape is interesting and you have a nice diagonal from the twig in the background. The muted tones of the pod are nicely done but there is some spreading of this to the background, a nicer crisper more uniform snowy white would perhaps have helped it perform even better? A pleasing entry Susan, thanks for sharing.
