This is astounding, Zeus! The line and color are amazing and so pleasant.

Thanks for all the comments and interest, everyone!

It's a straightforward, handheld macro of some sort of succulent outdoor plant (hey, I'm no botanist). What triggered my initial interest was the translucency of the leaves against the midday sun. In order to capture it, I knelt on the soil (my knees are still dirty from it) and pointed the camera diagonally upward, with the sun at approx. 90 degrees. I'm happy some of you liked this image. I, too, feel, I've been fortunate with this one.

PS: No equipment other than a # 2 ND on my camera was used.

Nice abstract. I love the hues and range of yellows and greens. Interesting take on "Life".

Gorgeous, luscious abstract. Stunning colours, great composition. Not too much detail, not too much blur. Great lighting. A fussy point, but I'm not sure this really communicates an interpretation of 'Life' rather than just life, so I'm taking off a point (just my opinion though.).
Score: 9

Beautiful! The repetitive diagonals and the color gradients are very attractive.

Hmmm... I'll have to think about this one and come back. A 6 for now - like the colors...
