A convoluted grape vine is all that's left after the leaves have blown away or died; shot into the sun through the leaves of some trees at different angles; this image had the best feel and lighting...levels, curves, usm, desaturate, hue/saturation to colorize, crop...

thank you for the comments; as you know my pictures are usually strange and it is rare that I score well... so it is pleasing that my photography appeals to some of the voters and that I received quite a few high votes...

tones are wonderful, like the diagonal composition -- you've set a great mood with framing and title as well -- one of my ribbon picks

Moody shot, offbeat but totally effective composition. And oh yeah, great Bokeh! 10

hmmm... i love these tones!! i just wish the background could be reversed so that the top part of the vine would be in front of the lighter zone... I love this shot nevertheless!

this works for me but I'm partial to monochromes/duotones. Focus is well done, composition excellent.

Interesting almost abstract take on it. The grass behind the vine adds a nice texture without making it too busy.

What a terrific image. To me this is what this challenge is all about. A great contrast between the subject matter and its surrounds. Very dramatic and beautiful.

This is very dramatic, I like tke the combination of streaks and big circles in the bokeh. A lovely frame also.

Cool pattern on the front and nice patterns and light in the back. My only wish would be for a little less shadow on the vine. I would ike to se emore detail on it. Advabced editing rules may have helped. In general a pleasing image.

Not sure if I like the very bright area at the upper right, but overall it's an excellent image and the colours are wonderful.
