Yes, I know this is not in focus. It makes a better abstract for me--if it was focused my attention would be on the subject rather than the light & shadow. An Abstract does not need a subject or even a focal point. Yes, I know there are photogs whose attention will be on the lack of focus rather than the light & shadow, & that's OK w/me.

I hate to leave a low vote without explanation, so I came back to this after hitting the 3 and pressing on. I'm afraid it just comes off very blurry and nothing about it that really grabs attention either. I do see some effort and thought behind it however, so I can't leave it with that 3. That is reserved for the average snapshot my mom takes. Blurry and soft is a hard thing to do well. I can't pull it off either.

The color is nice but the shot is too OOF for me.

this is my 3/4th time back...you have the right idea with the macro side of this but your focus is to soft IMO
