    I like the pp you have used to give these pods an almost alien look. Great composition and detail, lovely minimalist look against the white background.

    Like the composition, color and sharp detail. Usually am not fond of things against white backgrounds, but it works nicely here - has the feel of an antique scientific engravings.

    some cropping to allow the two LH stems pops to be the subject

    Wow. Nice shot. Reminiscent of a catalogue illustration in a nature encyclopedia. Great detail and gentle hues.

    I like this shot for sure, I get the impression they are wearing capes!

    Unique and interesting subject - but the excessive noise and graininess detracts from the image.

    Interesting, but I am not sure if I am fan of this filter. Your composition is very good, in my favourites.
