kind of a last minute shot...just wanted to play along. :) nothing special here...just a green marble on top of a rotten piece of board. i like the mixture of smooth and rough textures.

______________
with regard to the title, it's a Black Crowes song and i thought it fit the image because of the green.

and no...i didn't use that title because i think everyone should be jealous of my skills. sheesh!

"nothing special here...just a green marble on top of a rotten piece of board."

You`re absolutely right.
and a lesson for others in how to create something special out of nothing special.

Very special talent.

Great image, just don't get the title. I hope it is not implying that we should be jealous of your skills. That would be presumptuous.

Good image for the challenge.
Its interesting that for a challenge utilizing shape as the major element,you would select a title that refers to color.

I sure am.

The hard green stands out very well from the greys. I like the shallow dof and the flow in this photo. Also the 'perfect' roundness of the 'knikker' (that's what we call them) stands out very well from the rough surface.

I saw the duotoned version and pbase but the green makes the subject stand out a bit better. I think you made right choice here.

Then reflection in the sphere looks like a horizon with a tree or two on it. If that is the case and the image had been cropped to clearly show that scene, this image would been a lot more powerful.

love this shot. the green against the b&w makes it work very well. also, the light shining thru the green ball makes it even better. very interesting. great job!
