It's a cauliflower. I negated it, then used the channel mixer to emphasise the blue glow.

This looks like Cauliflower that has been in my fridge for about 8 months. :)~ I like your artistic expression in the use of negative. However, most people don't like it. It seems that there are some depth of field issues here. It seems a little blurry, but I think that negative has a tendency to soften images. I do see the general texture.

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge7
Total Score7

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

Looks like something I grew on jello once. :-) Good use of lighting so that the top is not completely blown out. I think just a touch more light on the front would help a little. karmat

Makes you want to touch it in order to really see it.

My first thought "Oooooo, what is it?" Very interesting.

Almost looks like it comes from a science fiction story. It would have been nice if you could have carried a little more depth of field.

another image that works better when levels adjusted to brighten it and converted to black and white (greyscale) to really bring out the textue.
