This looks like a baby pine tree. And i think it's especially cute with the mama pine tree in the background. Great detail, great lighting. Definately depicts something new. nice shot and good luck with the challenge.

I like your idea here...thought about it myself. The tree trunk behind it distracts from the main subject though. A different position would give you a different perspective. Good color contrasts.

I like the thaw (or is that resin?). Maybe you did it on purpose but I don't like how the tree in the background is almost aligned to the subject. I think it would have been better to move to another position so that the background is more uniform and less distracting.
Also the lighting is not so good. The subject looks very flat.

i think i would've tried to move in even closer towards part of that new growth. i was going to comment on moving around that shoot to get the tree out of the background, but you may have included that for comparison, so i won't. even though i personally would've preferred a more even and out of focus background. -- gr8photos (5)

Good depth. Slightly overexposed, and soft on focus. Lower boundary of subject seems truncated.

Sharp image, great use of DOF and technically flawless. Nothing wrong with the picture, but the subject matter is not overly interesting

Tom, I gave you an 8, even before knowing this was yours. I wasn't certain if at first if the droplets were water or sap, water is a great friend! The middle section of the tree's growth is a little sparce, could you fill that in with some added needles? (fluff it up a bit...) Really, how about narrowing the shot to the upper third of this branch. Or, I've always wanted to see an evergreen with red needles and green bark, make it so! Seriously, well deseved 8. Swash

It might have been better at a different angle. Perhaps slanted. But the rule of thirds would help. It has very good detail.

good color

The lights in the background are just a little too blurred and gives an unpleasant feel. The plant is nice but it is lined up exactly as the tree ? behind it and the plant is also smack in the middle of the image.
