Challenge: Pattern III (Basic Editing)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: UK

Again, if it was not for the Olympics and the fantastic efforts of TEAM POLAND then I would of sat this one out. It's been a serious week after getting back from Hawaii and decorating the whole flat and today my wonderful wife [user]hanae[/user] came back from Japan and I am totally knackered but managed this shot before passing out on my bed.

May appeal to some but I am pretty sure it will not score too high because of the hot spot but I cannot do anything about that with basic editing.

est score - 5.9
dream score - 6.6

I actually like everything about this except that odd white tube in the center. I know exactly what it is, but I think that changing the angle would decrease the impact of the white light coming through.

I think that what made this photo intersting is the colors and focus 9

awesome color composition and nice piece of art! (though I don't like the 100% white hole in the middle...)

Nice color and lines created which add great movement. the white backgrounf was a good idea.

Cool shot perfectly named. Nice earthy color tones and great movement. Back to bump up to 8.

It seems to me that this is really more the absence of a pattern (randomness). Still, it's a pretty cool shot.

Nice, though the white straw in the middle does not look natural. The middle is just too white and it looks like it was pasted there or enhanced in post processing. My apologies if I am wrong.

Very unique, entire picture grabs the viewers attention...a 10 in my book.

Bright light (circle and blob) in the middle drew my attention and did not help the overall impact. I hid it with my thumb and see a 8 or 9. With it there it is more of a 4 or 5.

I really like this, I wish there wasn't the hot spot that isn't in a straw in the center
