*Critique Club*
I'm looking around trying to find a part that is in crisp focus and I have noticed that it is only the small sections that are very close to the camera. This isn't very much of the photo. (looks like just the tips of the leaves that fold outward toward the camera) I think I would prefer this to have a bit more DOF and therefor show more of the detail in the leaves themselves, and not just in the tiny tips of the leaves.
The lighting is a little harsh on the right side of the photo. See where there is a light glare about mid way down on the photo and also in the upper right of the photo?
While I realize that the Yucca isn't a terribly colorful plant, It seems like the brightness here is muting the colors a bit. They look foggy or cloudy. They don't seem to stand out or have much punch at all.
The angle and framing/cropping is excellent. I realy think you did a perfect job of meeting the challenge, and the closeness is really great for the pattern and details. Had the focus been on the flat part of the leaves, this would really have been excellent for showing the detail of these leaves. There is a lot there to see.
Overall a nice shot, but with a focus and lighting adjustments, I think this would be great.

Great lines and flow, and the lighting is nice. I like the soft tones and texture, interrupted by sharp points and contrasts.

I don't see any part of this photo that is truly in focus. I'm not wild about the subject either. I guess it fits the challenge, just not my tastes in subjects.

meets the challenge but not a very eye catching shot

Nice textures. Lighting on the right is a little harsh and could do with a bit more contrast overall.

Lovely lighting. Really brings the subject to life.
