I've oft admired this image; and really thought I'd commented on it. Everything about it is suberb including color, composition, detail and texture. It reminds me of a piece of quality linen.

Marc,

Congrats on your great win in the lines challenge!

Do not attribute your win to the absence of others. You deserved it! Keep up the great work!

Thanks Shannon, that's only because the two contests I ribboned with, you and BradP didn't enter! ;-)

Look at all the tiny tiny details in the leaf - wonderful!!!!!! Add the Neatimage used on the rock image and see it all go away.

:D :D

Great shot!


Thanks! Nope, no NeatImage used here.

I tried a couple along these lines, but couldn't find a leaf half that cool. The texture is amazing. Your first ribbon was a nice shot, but this one is brilliant. The backlighting works wonders.

Congratulations.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 04:27:34 AM
amazing detail, there must be a billion and one lines here (well, maybe that's a slight overestimate :P). sort of wish that the lighting wasn't as bright on the right side as it is, but still a fantastic shot. 9.

Great detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2005 07:29:09 PM
Excellent. Great detail - almost looks like woven cloth - and lovely subdued colours. Not sure if the vertical placement excites enough, but the lines flowing away from the stalk do liven up the shot.
