"WOW", this was a fun challenge to do, and after exploring a couple of options, I went for the seeds one. I went out and brought as many differant types of seeds as I could, in various sizes, colors, and textures. I also had some of my own in the pantry as well. I had fun arranging them into a geometric abstract pattern.
Shot in the "Raw" format.

After photographing many, and choosing the one I liked best, I then processed it in ps.

Really beautiful setup, with lovely shapes and colour, but in my opinion it's a tad soft. If it were razor-sharp, this would be truly special.

This meets the challenge perfectly and has very warm earthy tones. What a brillant idea and very time consuming I would think. Love the pop of red in the middle section which is very appealing. Wonderful shot!!!

I have re-visited this image on three occasions thus far, and this is my first voting pass. I truly love what you did here. The colours, textures and geometric lines all combine to form a truly artistic image.

Nice use of texture and patterns to create an abstract. It must have been a daunting task. Kudos for having so much patience.

What an interesting composition! The lighting and exposure are perfect, and it's wonderfully sharp! I love the complimenting colors too! One of my favorites. . .and one I'm hoping is doing really well!!!!

Creative idea and it looks like it took a lot of time to assemble, my eye seems to go off the photo with the white grain going straight up. Perhaps angling it back into the frame would have moved the viewer's eye back in.
