From the Critique Club:

First of all, let me say that I'm not a big fan of abstracts. I understand why people like them and like to creat them though. I'm more of a traditionalist myself. That said, this is simply a great shot for this challenge. The DOF is perfect for this. You have just enough sharp detail to give your eye a spot to land on. Everything else is distinguishable but soft. Perfect! Love the colors too. Very simple color scheme and lighting. I especially like how the blue goes from darker in the bottom left to lighter in the top right. Great composition. Love the way the lines lead you through the frame.

The only thing that may kind of detract from the shot is the fuzz inside the bean pod, but what can you do?

All in all a very nicely done abstract!

Yours
TC

I gave this a 9. Good macro(?), liked the texture/detail captured. The color combinations took a little while to get used to, but do go together well, in my opinion.

Nice DOF - would have liked to see a bit sharper focus on the bean though

Good focus here if your intent was to just isolate the single pea. The background colors suits this image as well giving it visual impact.

Cool subject, like the shallow dof. The colouring is also appealing.
