    Well I hope you are going to apologize to your neighbours. I hear that the champagne, loud music and dancing on the lawn went on till the wee hours. I also heard the food was good except the Plantain salad that seemed a bit grainy - I mean gritty.

    Congratulations, this is a beautiful composition with great colors and lighting. The graininess was a bit distracting to me, however.

    Congrats A.G. !!!
This was my #3, so I'm glad it did well!
I was concerned about the noise in the shadows, but the beauty of the lines, textures, and color prevailed!

    WOW and double WOW. Finally a shot where the grain is a positive element. Kudos for seeing it and on the result.

    This is beautifully done. The crop really enhances the shot, and the lighting is wonderful.

    I really like the design element here but am not sure if I am looking at over-sharpening or noise. The lighting is beautiful.

    a really nice study of these obviously large leaves
some water drop either real or added would have been icing on the cake.

    Wondrously lit and beautifully expressive, I think this will be my top pick. Great shot - go to center stage and take a bow.

Yes, clearly my top pick in both categories. I think you might consider submitting this to 1x for recognition. It is as good as many there.

    This is a sweet picture! there is so much movement in it with the lines from the plants. The color is perfect as well. Good job.

    Strong composition and pattern. I like what you're after. Bit bothered by the light - would have preferred less contrast shadow/light interface in about center of image and avoid the blown highlights.

    Great detail and clarity. Love the lines the leaves make

    I like the graphic, almost abstract effect of the shapes and lines here. Great light. I don't mind the slight noise.

    Fabulous composition and framing. Maybe a little noise reduction needed? Otherwise, a stellar entry.
