Great photo!!! excellent photography. The black brings out such great color. Focus and composition really make this stand out - great work. 10

Try adusting the lighting from the side to make the veins stand out more.

This is really, really nice. Great focus (on the whole subject, which works for me), nice light levels, just enough negative space (too much leaves me restless), and a title that doesn't show you skipped Biology (joke at somebody else's exp)
No suggestions for improvement, but low WOW factor (maybe I've seen a few too many leaves) so the best I can go is 9. Swash

this is a nice work in color, but b&w would work even better for this image, i think. ~mcmurma

Meets Challenge9
Total Score8

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!

reshoot with noise reduction on.

nice texture

There is some noise in the black part, and the stem is kinda fuzzy ot me, but I like the overall effect. The details of the leaf show well. karmat

just ever so slightly not sharp. can't tell if it's focused or motion blur or simply needing to be run through unsharp mask...
07/23/2002 01:19:00 PM
it's a leaf. good job
07/23/2002 09:37:00 AM
Nice - texture, composition, lighting all work for me.
07/23/2002 09:08:00 AM
A nice texture and composition, but a trifle out of focus.
07/23/2002 07:26:00 AM
Nice leaf, but the stem is going out of focus.
07/23/2002 01:34:00 AM
Seems slightly blurred/oof.
07/22/2002 09:37:00 PM
Cool idea and nice composition.
07/22/2002 06:57:00 PM
nice composition

love this one
07/22/2002 03:29:00 PM
good composition and contrast
07/22/2002 02:47:00 PM
this is a really nice concept for texture. I feel that a shot like this one requires perfect focus to work and the focus here is too soft for the texture to really pop... = 5 - jmsetzler

Really nicely done. Love the color/contrast. Great job! 9 Lisa

Beautiful, clear, crisp focus, and color is good, appropriate background.
