Nice flower shot with good details. But without the title I would have not know how this would have played a roll in the challenge theme.

So, I find this well executed from the exposure, sharpness, color balance and tones point of view. There is something slightly chaotic about the arrangement itself that is vaguely unpleasant for me, though. 6

Your coloring and your lighting are nice. Guess I'm slow...I'm not getting the connection and I have no clue what the title means. Sorry!

I really like this shot.. but not sure I understand the concept as it relates to Reduce, reuse, recycle. 5

Forgive me but the arrangement sort of seems a little haphazard (was that the intention?) Not too keen on the background.
