The lighting of the background is great - I really like the graphic element those curved shadows provide. Placement of subject within frame is good - and it balances well with it's own shadow. Focus seems poor - the detail on the leaves, pot, roots etc just isn't sharp. Could also do with bouncing just a touch of light back onto the near side of the plant to make it easier to see that detail.

I gave this a 7 during the challenge.

I like the shot, the lines of the shadows but the roots ended up being a distraction for me and it lacked contrast for the black and white subject. Very few black and white shots can get away with low contrast.

Hope this helps!

Wonderful composition and the b&w treatment works well with the abstract feel of the shot. Well Done.

Bumping the contrast up a bit to get some blacks instead of greys would vastly improve this shot.

I like this idea. the tones are very nice. I think it might have been a stronger image if the top of the plant was completely within a lighted stripe rather than overlapping into the shadows

Nice blend of lines and curves and the play of light and shadow. The black and white seems to be lacking a little in contrast and the bamboo seems a little soft too, but the idea is wonderful.
