a simple composition, but effective. I'm generally not crazy about all-black or all-white backgrounds, since you usually lose any chance of interaction between foreground and background, but in this case the negative space has its own interesting shapes, and the subject fades into the blackness giving you more interesting edges. The subject itself has some interesting texture, much more than I'm expecting from a simple thorn. An important touch here is the large OOF area in a prominent position. That adds just the touch of complexity this needs to keep it from being too simple, and adds to the drama of the thorn.

Ouch! That looks so sharp, it's almost painful to look at. Excellent macro.

Great use of the square, negative space and classic composition. The subject has a lunar like texture, which is enhanced, by its black surroundings. Great image.

Sharpness and focus is in the perfect spot. Draws your eye right where it needs to be. I like the B&W and the background being dark. Nice effect with the lighting as well.

Really clear and sharp. I must be dense because I can't figure out your theme.
