Shot through a magnifying glass.
This replaces my original submission which I realized I had taken 1 1/2 hours too early.
It's a bit more of a shoehorn than the first one was, in spite of being shot in the appropriate time frame. The appearance of a person is chance. It is all just foliage.

I gave out six 10's in this challenge, this was the only one that didn't make the top ten. Perhaps that makes this one the best of them all :) Beautifully done shot.

I really thought this was the blue, but what do I know, I don't suffer from depression but when I saw this, it made me feel blue, well done, and very under-rated.

For such a tremendous title, and the most appropriate for the challenge, I wished for a more nuanced image.
The better the thought, the more I expect - the better the image, the harsher the critique. It's not fair in general but it's a high compliment.

I like grainy blurry images, you know I do, but this is one time I think the photo should be in focus, so I can determine what expression they are emanating. I'm sure this is intentional though obviously. Still it leaves a lot to the imagination, and this is still one of my top picks, if not my top pick.
