Photographer's Note:
I found the "Money Plant" while on a walk with the dog at 5:30 PM on the last day of the challenge. I shot a few dozen different angles, downloaded them to the computer, did a little post processing, and uploaded to DPC with a hour to spare. Hope it does better than the picture I had previously been banking on and uploaded a few days ago.

Cloned out a few minor distractions.

What a refreshing change from the traditional flower shots. Beutiful abstract shapes. Very nice balance in form and color.

a great subject with attractive color and nice transparency. For me the image is let down by its composition. A bit messy. I think you should have chosen three leaves or so and make a more simple composition.

Mmmmm, nice one! Maybe the bit in the lower right could have been eliminated, but still a very pleasing pattern and good 'n sharp.
