Hope I spelled that word right

This is gonna be tooooooo weird for everyone lol. But what fun is it to enter mainstream stuff?

It's a plant leaf and its shadow...

The transition from leaf to shadow is CENTERED (close enough anyway lol)

This should get pretty much stomped on. Sub-5 anyone?? hehe

My eye goes right to the center of the photo, which IMHO pretty much means it nailed the challenge. For what is essentially an abstract image, that's phenomenal! :) The thickness of the border complements the thick dark lines in the composition.

Nah, if you want a sub-5, you gotta work a LOT harder than this! Neat concept, and you pulled it off well.

Great abstract and I love the dof you have used which has given gentle forground bokeh and really strong background bokeh with, sandwiched in between the very strong tones and sharpness of the leaf

I thought the border worked really well on this shot

Hmmm... I liked how metalic the leaves looked. Wonderful processing and great execution.

I don't quite consider this centered comp. Even though the joint of the leaves is in the center, it does not lead the eye there. But, I can see your interpretation of the topic and I do really like it.

Very nice depth of field. I don't particularly get a feeling of being centered.

It's a really interesting photo with grat tones, but what exactly is the subject? Is it that joint where the leaves come together? WOuld look wonderful framed, but rather unitriguing. A ladybug, or droplet of water. Why focus on that point right there? this only IMO. I think technically, you have photography nailed!! Let the photo tell a great story though.

wonderful use of lines to create a center that isn't really present

If the sharp area represents the subject then it is below the centre.
