I walked to work today to get this. It's a tumble weed, I think.. It was very energetic and kept trying to get away because it wasn't rooted. Hope this doesn't do too poorly.I used a film of mineral oil on a cheap filter for the soft focus. I like how the sun made everything glow.

I like the textures in this shot. It has a "southwest" feel to it.

This is an interesting abstract. It almost looks like micro organisms under a microscope. The lighting on the weed(s) is good, giving it a nice halo effect. The light also gives it a good soft look/feel too. I'm tempted to say it needs a little more contrast, but I think you'd lose the layering if you did that. The overall image seems a little overexposed, but it's good for an abstract.

Great lighting and composition, but the DOF is a bit too narrow. I find it a bit taxing focally.

Had you expanded the DOF then the pattern from the fronds would have been more eye-catching and exploitative of the beautiful sunlight.

I love the feel to this shot, difficult to tell if it truely classes as soft focus with the display size but inspired lighting.
