This is a nice shot.
Was the focus stacking really necessary on such a "flat" subject?

This is fantastic, and that assessment is before I apply my personal love-of-agave multiplier :-)

Personally, I thought this was the most original of all the entries.
The interlinking fits the puzzle theme so well.
Both colour and composition are excellent ... well done!

Very artsy. I like it. Looks like a bull's horn to me :) Is that flour? Very nice puzzle.

I'm seeing a beautiful image of a beautiful object. Excellent lighting, composition, crop, colours etc. However I'm not seeing either a puzzle or something puzzling.

Ooooh, I like this one...unusual subject, stellar composition, fantastic texture, pleasing colors, and soft lighting.

Beautiful, beautiful detail. I like the idea of lifting the leaf tip out of it's place, like lifting a puzzle piece out of the picture. The indentation it leaves creates a lovely dark contrast for the red, yellow and white. Lovely.
