I just love these trees. Looks soft, but I´m tellin´, it ain´t!

Did some cloning work afterwards to get rid of some spiders web that was too disturbing.

Sharpened it and cropped it slightly.

Cool shot to look at. Your eye gets lost in patterns but can always find rest on the few sharp as nails. Nice choice of border as well.

I love it how the repetition of forms fades away into the background. Very dynamic. 8

I like the lines but think this may have worked better if the focus started at the bottom left. I find the blur in that spot distracting from the center.

like the repetition and the bold colors - one of my favorites this challenge

THe selective focus here is quite fine as is the repeating pattern. I like the seeming motion going on at the right from the blur.

That's a terrific image. Original subject, well conceived (composition & point of focus), and perfect execution. It has a marvellous 3-dimensional character. Well done. 10

Great colors and a nice pattern...I wanted to see even the first leaf in focus and then let it blur in background.. the first one being soft is soemthing i didn't like much... 7

this is almost wonderful. I really like the isolated effect from shallow dof. If only one of the leafs were actually in sharp focus. I keep looking for the one that you had in mind, and can't find it. Nicely done overall though and a good idea. bumping up

Very nice picture. Love how the light catches the edges of the leaves and especially the dof you chose. Good luck!

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "monkey-tree" but this photo is fanstastic.

I started out with a 5 on this but decided I had been too quick to judge. I've changed my vote to a 7.

I like the repeating pattern. I like the use of DOF to accentuate part of the image and not the rest. I like how the border keeps your eye from wandering away. Nice colors and sharpness.

What could make it better? Perhaps a stronger central subject. I mean, what if the leaf that is in sharp focus had a ladybug climbing up?

Hope the comments help.

Nice sense of depth created by DOF choice. Nice lighting too with golden light defining the edges of each leaf.

Nice repeating pattern, but too little of the image is sharp. A little more needs to be sharper, IMHO.

Wonderful lines, textures and colors! Good luck!
