Macro of radiating Iris leaves Didn't like the hot spot but cropping it out took away some of the interesting branching.

Cropped, adjusted levels, saturation. Applied Neatimage, added a thin border. Saved for the web.

Looked at this several times during voting and since..... wanting to like it and am not completely convinced. I love the subject & idea - simple natural, five (I like the uneaven number shown) fanned fonds. As you say the composition may be compromised by cropping or an alternative - just the simplicity of the editing is not enough to make this shine like it should.

Love the coloring, lighting and contrast. Not your traditional branch but great interpretation. Good job!

The colors you used are nice and I like the way the light is hitting that one spot. But I think the highlight of each leaf seems washed out.

Nicely done would be even better without the hop spot at the top 8

Nice use of colours. A little too much light. This is a palm branch, but I must say that the picture is of leaves. Skirting the edges of the challenge definition here.

The fronds are like fingers. I like the yellowy green getting darker as it reaches the top. Nice macro and a bit different from the millions of boring shots I've seen so far. The "hot spot" on the middle one at the top is a tad distracting.

Great idea. the lighting is a bit blown on one area but for me that's fine. The crop could be tighter to get rid of that red highlight at the bottom right. I like this image. It appeals to me very much. 7
