Hmmm...a hungry-looking, piscine-like leaf in the burnpile sprouting a mouthful of spiky little bits of hoarfrost. Couldn't resist.

shot RAW, basic global adjustments in PS, then NIK for the fancy crap

post-challenge: Woohoo! Both a TT (by the skin of my teeth, hehe) and a red from Posty. Things don't get much better esp for a Friday :-)

Greetings from the Critique Club, Susan!

I should have known not to click for an image just after an abstract challenge, Ha! They're not "my thing".

I gave this a five during voting, so I'm not sure that I'm the best person to critique this for you. Or... maybe I am because... everyone else loved it!
I couldn't figure out the hoarfrost... I thought they were like a prisoner scratching the days, too.

The large, upper left triangle has nothing of interest in it (to me)... so it's almost like negative space to me. Then, when I got to the subject, I still wasn't excited. And, it all seems horribly over sharpened to me.

I do love the veins in the leaves on the right. They're quite lovely.

Plucked from the everyday by a photographer with a good eye. Intricate, well-composed and suggestive. The great detail lends intimacy to this almost other-worldly scene and, along with the uncertainty of shape and form, approaches abstraction from two directions. Also, both muscular and delicate.

Ha! I didn't like this at all until I clicked it open. Then I LOLd. Well done. Good choices.

I cover the title for it takes my mind from the scenario that popped into my mind. To me is more like the painful scratching of days of a prisoner
An interesting shot
