Thank you for all the kind comments.

gloda wins the prize for getting the explanation of the 550 high correct - I find that anything bigger requires me to scroll, which means the impact of an image is lost.

So that it fits exactly onto my screen in Firefox :)

A great picture, I was surprised when I read it's a seed, I thought it was a flower! Well, a brown flower... Anyway, it's well executed and very creative. Congrats on your 8th finish.

Scored this highly, even though I did not see the "K" until after voting had closed. The "K" is worth looking for here - a deeper, more rewarding picture than many on this front (as well as technically excellent).

Why is it 550 high, and not 640 high??? Waste of 90 pixels of detail vertically, amounting to about 1500 pixels in total, that could have made a significant difference!

Congrats on your top ten finish Kevin.
This is one that I had to look at twice to see it. Good eye!

one of my top five. wonderful colors and DOF. (8)

More "X" than "K" (or a perfect capital "J" if cropped down the middle). The uneven lighting is a bit disconcerting, but it's a lovely image nonetheless.
04/12/2005 11:11:59 PM
Cool! my name starts with a K! First one I saw so far! WOOT.
04/12/2005 10:52:11 PM
This is such a pretty shot...I see the K perfectly. I love the dark green background.

Fairytale K, smooth bokeh. Like the way it seems to float.
04/08/2005 02:38:11 PM

Quite lovely and elegant, nicely done.
04/08/2005 09:17:18 AM
this is a beautiful macro and a great K. as a thumbnail it looked like a boring x but its not;) good dof, well done.
04/08/2005 05:58:11 AM

04/07/2005 10:22:20 AM
nice job. beautiful light
04/07/2005 09:49:23 AM
This is cute..and the first K i have seen! I like how it looks very realistic. I also like how the green behind just fades back into the picture. Nice shot,
04/06/2005 05:21:51 PM
The first "K" I've seen. I love your focus and depth of field. The dried plant looks 3 dimensional. Good job!
04/06/2005 01:13:21 PM
