A soon as I saw this challenge I knew my subject, the Queen Anne's Lace that grows wild along the path where I walk my dogs. The light coming through it in the evenings really shows off the structure of it, and I've been enjoying it for some weeks now. So I'm sharing.

Had the 20mm extension tube on.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, levels, increased contrast, white balance, shifted greens greener and yellows whiter, resized, sharpened, added border.

An interesting photo with an apt title. Whilst not making it into my personal top 10, I do admire your take on the challenge, and the flower (cow parsley?) is photographed well.

Neat perspective on this well known plant. Nice depth of field. Love the way it branches on and on. The greens and blues are very pleasing with nice sidelighting.

I love the color in this. I'm not a huge fan of the subject...it just seems a bit messy to me. But the light falling from the side is nice and I give you points for choosing an odd POV. 5.
