I'm very happy that this placed so high! I'm actually very excited about 5th place because it is my first 5th place finish and completes the set (1,2,3,4,5)!

I like the detail here and the bokeh is wonderful. The little accent of the spider web is nice, though I think a spider in the actual web would have really made the shot. Congrats on the wonderful placement.

really nice job of keeping the whole subject sharp with that focal length and aperture. I prolly would have had to shot at least a 100 to get one good, great job, great composition, really nice for the challenge

The spiderweb is a very nice touch. Like the weathered wood and the colors of the background.

Simple, but yet lots of detail and color. Very nice. I am continually amazed at how a good eye can photograph everyday items in an interesting way.
