I wanted to fill the frame evenly for this particular shot. I was careful to place the stem of the bamboo in the upper left corner so the viewer could easily follow the pattern of the bamboo. I chose to use side lighting and a small amout of water to add additional texture. I also used macro and a rust suede backdrop.

Super point of view here, and the lighting is so soft and nice. The colors seem slightly hazy or not as saturated as they might be, but this photo still works very nicely for me.

I like the contrasting colors of this image and the curves of the bamboo.

Wonderful compostion, the water drops just add so much. Could also be a natural number 6!

The colors are wonderful, very oriental. And the compostion is perfect. Very good photograpy. This is something that should be framed.

Great choice of background color. Almost like a rust color. Contrasts very well with the green.

Has an odd appearance, especiallyon the end. It reminds me of Ring Bolgna
