3 pictures of the same area in my garden, the leafy one is a cucumber seedling, and the flower is a False Rue Anemone. The dirt is the dirt of the seedling, hopefully it makes it. Setup was a white posterboard out on the steps in the sun, sprayed the plants with my sprayer for the droplets of water.

post processing included nothing on the dirt except the border added.
plant: duplicate layer, faded, erased dirt clumps, blending to have what's there blend in, border.
flower: levels, hue/sat, duplicate, border added.

i'm hoping this does alright, i haven't entered a challenge in awhile, so here goes :)

I scored this image pretty highly during voting. I think that the presentation of the three images worked very nicely. It was unique, and it drew attention to the flower and leaf while still making the dirt an important part.

I think the main problem that you have is that the image looks a little unbalanced - perhaps, as was mentioned, there was too much white. The eye is a little confused looking at the image. A smaller problem is that I can see a line of processing in the lower left corner of the leaf box.

I like your theme - having the leaf and the flower together with the dirt really does portray "life" and I think the addition of the ant was a lovely touch. I love your lighting - setting it out in the sun was nice - and I love the drops of water that you included.

All in all, great job.

The white in the main and leaf picture is a little too blown out, but i love your idea!
