This photo does, to me, really conjure feeling about "life." Very nice work. Congratulations!

I think you took your picture at a perfect time. It is such a fragile and needy stage of life that it makes a good statment... More than one that was a tad older and didn't look so small and precious!

Congratulations. I think your timing was just right. A few days later the lintel would have been standing straight up. My dad was born in then Czechoslovakia many years ago. His dad was a miner.

Great shot ... I actually imagined something like this for my entry. Very well executed. I love the shallow DOF. Very well done. Jacko. 10

I feel that the stones(?) are too warm a colour for this shot to really impact. I hope you don't mind but I had a quick experiment with this photo by desaturating everything but the shoot, and then adjusting the colour balance to provide more blue in the highlights and shadows, and a touch more cyan and blue in the mids. This then needs NeatImage to remove the noise. To my taste this then packs a lot more punch, emphasising the vibrant shoot coming through the inert, lifeless stones. This is all DPC legal. Other than that, it's a great shot! 8

I think this is a great take on the topic of "life". It isn't overdone like so many others, while at the same time it is very simple. Great composition and perfect use of depth of field. Good work.

I really like this though I would have cropped it a bit closer. Color are lighting are perfect. Interpretation is interesting and nicely imagined. Good work

The cotyledons are barely out, and the shoot hasn't even fully extended. Beautiful catch!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a great idea. The composition gives great interest to the shot. The green really stands out. The focus is perfect. It really makes the subject pop out. "10"
