Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that fulfils the challenge brief

“The coastline of your mother’s disappointment”? What’s Don on? He’s nothing if not original, tee hee. It’s certainly a lovely piece of agate. I have to say I have rather mixed feelings about this one Janine, I wish it had a greater DOF and more sharpness but then in terms of the challenge brief you could easily argue that the softness adds to the abstract element of the challenge. Taking that as an option perhaps an even shallower DOF but critical sharpness on a foreground element with an even softer background forming the backdrop may possibly have worked better?

Granite countertop.

Cool design but there isn't enough of a focal point to hold my interest combined with the edges being out of focus.
