Going for the 4's. I liked this shot due to the contrast and the simple defiance of the little shoot growing out of the place where a limb was removed.

I thought that this was an interesting and different take on the challenge - I am surprised it did not score higher. I like the composition in particular. I agree that there is a slight focus/sharpness issue on the top leaves, but very slight.

Nice shot. I like the new growth coming out of the cutoff stump or limb.

i would like to see a little bit more light to make the subject pop, but this is a good composition

nice capture... though if you would have got the bud coming out more clearer then the picture would have been a beauty.

Nice focus, nice lighting, nice balance in the composition. This is to me, a "good" photo, but it does not draw a 'gasp' or "OOoooo".
