I finally bought my first Digital Camera, so this is my first entry ever. A big thanks to everyone on the site who has contributed to the tutorials. I have learned loads about how to actually use Photoshop for actual photo editing, and I'm quite impressed by the results I've gotten on my first attempt.

I was having a hard time deciding which of the two challenges to enter this for, but ultimately I think this does a nice job showing both Life and Death in one image, so that's what I chose.

A beautiful photo - and an example of how a skilled photographer with artistic vision can turn unappealing objects and subjects in to beauty.

Very nice image. Nice and clean and well thought out.

It seems that this is the branch of death, the leaf dies from a single touch. A little depth could improve, maybe some fading of the background to really bring attention to the focal point. Good concept.

Very nice illustration of life and death. A little more light would have enhanced the life in this photo.
