I was really expecting a ribbon for this one, it was one of the very few 10. But it doesn't matter, i bet you inspired a lot of people like me to experiment on shots like this. Keep shooting that nice! ;)

Ahhhh, refreshing to see something other than an insect macro. This should have won a ribbon!!! Great composition. Love those sharp points on the leaves.

Very graphic picture. Love the sharp lines in the picture. Great lighting and shadows in the leaf help to make it pop out of the picture. The highlights in the leaves also help.

Beautiful shapes, but I would have liked the reflection to be softer, not underexposed.

Very sharp. The white space is a little distracting, which may be due to the border.

Pretty. I don't like the high contrast of the black and white though. The plant is beautiful.

Stark contrasts work well here to define the points. 9

Good job. Perfectly executed. I had only planned giving out one 10, but you deserve one too. I only see 4 little imperfections.

Wonderful wonderful image. The way the top edge of the leaves stand out against the dark background (at the top), the way the shadow at the bottom is so stark. I really like this shot.

I like the shadow.....curious how this was done within rules.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2003 06:59:33 PM
I love the sharp edges, the way the leaves hold the sharp light and the shadow that looks like a cut-out ...nice job

I'm having a hard time figruing out how you accomplished such a hard contrast with shadow and light but the effect is truly amazing. This has instantly become one of my favorite DPC pictures. - 10

very interesting shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very interesting lighting. I like the highlights on the sharp edges of the thistle leaves and the really cool shadow you created. How did you get such strong, crisp lines on ther shadows?

Took me a second to figure out the shadows, excellent contrast in this one, I love the shadows on the bottom! 8
