really good image which should have finished much higher.

Lovely capture of texture, very crisp, and the background colors are beautiful and complimentary. The out of focus pine cone in front bothers me a little - maybe if the photo were cropped so only half of it were there it might not be so distracting. Overall a nice shot, though, and fits the theme of the challenge very well.

I would have liked to see the pinecone on the table surface vs floating above it. You did a great job of preserving focus and details, though.

Depicts all the challenge requested, my first 10, sure it wasn't yours.

I like the use of DOF here, though you may want to experiment with which cone gets the focus (you probably already have). the tones and colors are very inviting!

Nice composition, the DOF is very good. Good luck...

The top half of the pine cone is sharp and clear; IMHO the whole pine cone should be this clear, with only the background out of focus.

Love the DOF and the detail in the focused area of the pine cone. Very sharp. - Composition lacks something, just not quite right (maybe the focused area is little to centered).

Really like the background colours in this.
Well captured
