This deserved to do much better. I gave it the 10.

Sorry this shot was so underrate by the voters in the challenge (I was one of your two '8's)

Hope it is OK but I have mention it in the posthumous ribbons of the week thread

I feel the dark vignette overpowers the photo.

Thought it was an easter egg at first. He's all comfy in there now is he? DOF is very shallow where I would've liked to have seen more details.

Colors are extraordinary! I wish that the focal point were a little more clear.

Good subject for this challenge...this shot also reminds me of the Earth for some reason...

I thing this photo has a good potential, but needs some fixing. Too blurry, has some overcast and fringing.
