Beautiful! Simple and very powerful. I love the lighting and the contrast of the green over the black background. Well done!

Wow! Thank you Brad! I was really pleased with my entry and happy so many others liked it. I'm afraid my challenge work runs hot and cold at the moment.

I should clear up the name thing. (I entirely forgot what was in my profile or I would have changed it if I thought I'd make the top 10.) Lily is the name of one of my cats, her brother is Tiger. I like to mess around with my profile name so this week I'm "Lily Meister". That replaced "Thread Killer" once I stopped killing all the threads I spoke to . Who knows what it'll be next week... But I'll stick with KaDi here, if you don't mind.

Hi Lily,
This was one of the most graceful & beautiful shots I have seen in a long time. Should have been in the top 5 in my opinion.
Stunning!

Beautiful, dynamic, unusual, weird, amazing, lush and very intriguing. I love nature and there's seldom anything within her that is less than extraordinary.

A wonderful [10]

This is an extraordinarily beautiful photo. Great subject and great lighting. With a lighter background, this would be perfect to hang in the kitchen. Really nice job!

Definitely extraordinary. I love the lighting and how it really picks up different elements in the subject. A really beautiful composition.

Very interesting botanical.... black back (foam core?) is excellent to show and isolate the intricate structure of the plant growth. Superior specimen.

Excellent shot...great composition. Lighting is super. Seems to be a little out of vertical...but got my highest rating (8)..I tend to vote a little low.

Very extraordinary and beautifully done. I love the background and the lighting. The intertwining subject is very interesting to look at. Crop, clarity and subject all very well done.

I really enjoy looking at this shot. The lines and curves are very elegant. The lighting is perfect. This is the kind of photograph that I like to see when voting on a challenge - alot of thought and work went into it obviously. I am looking forward to the end of the challenge so that I can find out how you made this amaizing image.
