I love the softness of this feather.

Very nice, I love the idea.
I think if you had left just a little more in focus it would make it more interesting.

Very nice colors on this shot! And definitely a good macro subject. It seems as if the lighting is perhaps a bit harsh, or as if there's some kind of reflection...but around the edges it seems a little blown out. I like the composition, with the line of the feather going diagonally across the screen.

The images that always suffer from a lack of comments are the ones that are right in the middle ground. Everyone comments on the awesome shots. Some comment on the bad shots. But the middle ones, very few people say anything. So here I am to explain why I voted a 5:

Macro and extreme close-ups typically have very shallow depth of field (DOF) and this image exhibits that aspect very well. What it lacks is a central "subject" to focus on. The part that is in focus is really not much different from any other part of the image which is out of focus. So it ends up confusing the eye... what to look at and why... So my recommendation would be to find a stronger central subject for the image.

5 - More 'fore focus' would be better for me. Simpler, different crop (that blue right of screen is a little distracting). A tad darker, more contrast.
