Honestly did not expect to see so much plant life. Sort of surprised me...

Didn't expect to do this well. Thanks to everyone for their kind comments and votes :)

Decided to go with a simple no frills border for this one. Since most of the image is fairly dark, wouldn't want to distract the eye.

I really like the composition and color. The black background and dark soil really makes the plant stand out.

Excellent colours and use of black background. DOF and focus are bang on. 9

I like this one. We see lots of new buds, flowers, plants, but this stands apart. The earth below adds nice texture, with the light skipping over it. The two drops of water on the left leaf really add a nice bit of interest. Great composition. I like it. 8

I love the color and the contrast that you have captured here. Nice use of the light without over-exposing on the leaf.

a nice thin green (same as the leaves) border at 1/8" on the black around your picture would have been... superbe...
