Good use of noise (intended? i dunno) but I think it's too oversharpened. Great lighting.

The fact that I can tell it is a venus fly trap does not deny the fact that it's a pretty good abstract.

I like this. The noise, negative space and gloominess all work hand in hand together. Gets an 8 from me.
