This is a left-over April Fools prank that I pulled on my boss on his first day back from vacation. The sprouts are basil which grows quite quickly.

the idea is great but the background isn't that good!!

A wonderfully clever idea! I wonder how this might look from a different, much closer angle. This might give the photo more interesting composition, and any shallow depth of field you could get would make it look even better. I like the concept though. :)

with only a week you should have used 'miracle grow'
I'm sure you'll be taking more pics as this scene develops.
great idea

What an odd setup. not sure how well it addresses the challenge here but I can imagine a number of interesting angles to explore, this plain overview probably isn't the most interesting available.

Very creative concept, its nicely executed as well.

Probably my favourite idea of the whole challenge. It just made me gasp and smile when I saw this, very creative.

good colours. A couple of little points, it seems just a fraction off on the focus and I wonder whether turning the keyboard slight would have added an interesting angle rather than a straight on shot

Let me tell you though I would take a shot like this over yet another pixel perfect 'smooth water' 'northern lights' or 'crown of water' ever time

Great creativity 9 from me

How many keyboards were killed making this scene? cute!

this is rediculous, in a good way. Very creative, but i would have cropped out the unnecessary area around.

This is a different way to meet the challange. I like the idea but not necesarrily the background.

Tap into your arts and crafts skills and construct your own landscape "scene" to serve as the subject for your entry.

I feel that this is a different take on the challenge theme, but does not fit into the description of the challenge. JMO Creative idea though. I would prefer the lighting to be a little brighter though. It may have worked a little better if your angle was from the ground so to speak then the plants would look like little trees.

You've taken a lot of trouble here, but I feel like it's more just plants growing than a landscape - I know, I know, "What else IS a landscape"?

Recycling made simple. :)

LOL clever use of an old keyboard! More of a macro and lower POV may have strengthened this shot.7

Never seen this use for a key board

Well there's a different use for old keyboards. I like the concept. For me, the background detracts. Perhaps if it were laying in a field of grass with a bit of blue sky in the background it would have greater impact.

interesting interpretation

not relly a landscape .

I guess that's one thing you could do with your old keyboards.
