Photographer’s Comments
I better not get any DNMC on this one. It is clearly a macro taken very close to the subject. The subject cannot easily be identified. And the result is abstract.
Self Comment: I like the rich colors. I like the bokeh (which MS Word cannot spell.) I like the leading lines on the right which bring the eye back into the photo. Uses rule of thirds to strengthen composition. It’s unlike anything else in the challenge.
But you, dear voter, must decide what you think and vote accordingly. Hope you enjoyed it.

7 - Nice color and light play/bokeh effects. 'If only' to capture more of those effects, would have given this a little extra and made it even better in my opinion.
