Great shot. I didn't think it would do this good. I love it.

Simple, like the contrast/color. Very nice! (Not sure how I feel about the thickness of the white portion of the border - maybe half the thickness?).

Wow! What did you use for lighting this? Fantastic shot!

Love the simplicity, light and lines here. :)

Lovely! One of the more unique and original photos in the challenge. The Black background and border work well, bringing out the bright green colours without making them too vivid. Great texture and lighting.

very nice. love the backlighting of this shot. good cropping too

I have browsed the thumbnails a couple times now when I come to vote and comment. This photo jumped out at me every single time. It's beautiful. the detail you show us with the great focus and clarity is wonderful. I love seeing the 'veins'. These almost look like iris leaves. The lighting is simply suprub. I really like the different shades of green. You have brought out the color perfectly. The border also works really well with this image. Great shot. 10 from me. Good luck in the challenge.
