*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A fairly abstract image that meets the challenge well.

It took me a while to realise that the lint is on a piece of scrap wallpaper that is being held by a lady in a blue gown with red hair. Then result is really quite abstract and more appealing for it. I find the right of the image so intriguing that it takes over the actual subject matter.

I have to assume that your choice of very high ISO was done deliberately to make the noise a feature of the image? If this is not the case you could easily have shot at something like two stops bigger aperture and reduced your ISO to 3200 perhaps even 1600 for a much cleaner result. The focus is also deliberately soft? I assume manual focus was used as nothing appears to be in sharp focus but perhaps this was one of those times when you wanted to present a different result and use soft focus per se.

I'm having one last feast of the right before I leave you… Thanks for your submission, Sid
