Scary cool image - I gave this a 9 but didn't have a chance to comment during voting. I really think what sets this one apart for me is the recurring yet differing shapes - the stars from the pines and the brown leaf as the main subject with the other green one in the background. The warmth of the colors is another selling point. I do think that the reddish brown section in the upper left tends to pull my eye away a bit, but I like the shapes so much!

Karen i loved this pic and I wish it had finished higher. There's such a magical quality to it, with the green sparkles in the background. It's beautiful!

I hope you dont get bored of me saying this but this is another truly magnificent photo. I have to be honest and say generally I found the flora challenge a bit wearying to mark. There were so many great macro shots of flowers but these almost became overpowering and left the viewer feeling a bit blase and non plussed. This however was a fantastic exception. The focus and dof you have used created an image which was both interesting in terms of the main subject and in which the natural background of stars created a real visual treat

I love it

This was my favorite out of the bunch. I am so surprised at your score. In my opinion it should have a ribbon next to it.

What a great image! I love the contrast between the green plant and the star flower! Well done.

What cute little plants, this might even be better without the big brown plant and just have the one green plant in focus or to have just the brown plant in focus,

Very much like the background and DOF. Not quite as fond of the dried leaves but not sure what would look any better.

Well seen and captured, I love the one green star so strongly in focus in the upper right as a balance to the generally downward flow provided by the soft focus stars; the papery appearance of the white leaves is great.

Really pretty. The green is amazing and the shapes are fantastic. There's so much to look at - my eyes just keep wandering. 9

Very creative. I would probably have cropped the left hand side off the image and gone for a squarer shot.

simple, but very nice shapes - almost like little green stars shining behind the leaf
