I like this image! I love the sunlight and shadows that really define the shapes. I love the DOF and the pattern it gives in the background! The only thing distracting to me is the stem and what can you do about that? hehe I have tried this 'weed' shot and got blurry images from the wind.
Natures patterns can be really interesting.

Yes I know the crop is bad. The camera is a toy (Point and shoot auto everything, can't really see the screen on a bright day.) Couldn't tell the shot was even interesting till I got home, Never had another sunny day to reshoot.

Border was an attempt to briing the bright green, right center, in line with the grey green tonse of the background.

I wish I could see the top part of the seed capsule here, cutting off those tips detracts from the piece as a whole. The compostition here isn't wonderful either. you have nothing on the bottom to balance what's going on in the top. Interesting subject though.

The gentler colours and contrast fit the subject nicely and I like the repetition not only in the one image, but in the inclusion of the second. Not a fan of the border, though.

I would have liked it better if the subject would have stood out from the background.

crop on top looks accidentally, green of frame doesn't match, but good DOF. like how the other plants are still visible

The top of the focused "pinwheel" is cut off. I'd rather see the whole thing.
