The hose end is a neat touch - or is that a light bulb base? Good colors, nice backlighting and rim ligfhting. Exposure right on.

Very clever! I like the slight halo around the edge of the leaf.

Lovely shot. The gold beading along the edge makes it. The simple leaf shape and the bronze holder are all perfect. A little dark along the tip, but perhaps that was unavoidable.

A+ for clever idea. Also a good job of making it happen. I'd like to be able to see the metal part just a bit more definedly but this is a nit... Well done.

cool, but...it looks like the light is being shown from the front by the way the shadow falls on the bulb base.
