i dunno how this will do.. people may be tired of the selective desat after the challenge last week but I did it anyway... took alot of shots to get the DOF i wanted..
it's a basil shoot my mom's growing from seeds, so she's very protective of them.. they sit on a little heated mat :P
cant remember what else i did.. i upped the saturation of the square + plant, lowering (but not removing) the sat around... cropped alot... saved for web..
i do wish the main plant was facing more towards the camera... i expect people to comment on that if nothing else..
i think i forgot something too .. oh well :)

Excellent focus and color adjustment to draw the attention directly to the subject.

It is nice once you find the subject. The background is too busy IMHO

you should rotate your seedlings, that way they won't all grow crooked. good idea though, and don't worry, mine all did the same thing this year. great focus on the dirt at the base of the seedling, although because of that, it looks like the upper leaves are not in focus quite as well. good job though, 5
