This is a Bamboo plant, I placed in a glass container and used blue and white poster board as background. Added lighting below the plant and behind the plant to accent the roots, the roots did not have the clarity I was hoping for, I don't know if it was the water or lighting, but it seemed somewhat blurred, if I sharpened the image anymore it was too sharp and looked over exposed.

This definitely exposes things, but as an image it seems to lack clarity - the roots are all surrounded by jagged edges on my screen, as are the lines of the vase, but the marbles at the bottom are cloudy.... Not sure if that is just the image quality, or is more the lighting.

I really like the potpourri of colors and shapes, along with the transuscent effect. Beautiful use of light and reflection.

The idea is good but the shot is over sharpened, too bright and the stones in the bottom distract from the roots. I like the background, the way it reverses through the water in the vase and the lighting is good along with the cropping. This one gets a 5 to start

very interesting response to the challenge, unique I believe, but is it a bit oversharpened?

Ugg...the pixelation and the color manipulation of this shot are really bad. Nice idea but not very well executed.

This is an interesting idea but the image seems to be way over sharpened or something... maybe a little too strong on some level adjustmens as well...

Neat idea. Great colors and composition. I think it's a bit oversharpened though.

I love the white/blue dichotomy. Very well done, although it may be a little over-sharpened.

The lighting looks very harsh inside the vase, either that or too much sharpening or contrast added in post editing. Still a bit of soft focus on the roots, but I do like the blue and white background and the colored stones. Definitely fits the challenge. 5

This was a good idea, the color is also good. The problem is that it looks very over sharpened. I do think it meets the challenge.

This seems rather oversharpened. I like the color choices here a lot.

Looks like very interesting. The only thing I could say against are the white points on the left blue background, but except that, would be 100%

This is way oversharpened. Also I would have cropped off a little more on the right side to keep it all even.

Good Points: idea is great and well composed.
Bad Points: image quality is awful, looks oversharp.
