Very good detail and that splash of colour is just what's needed today. Good POV well presented

They make amazing abstracts. I like the way you have gone in close, I think I might have cropped off a bit at the bottom - the detail bottom right and dark triangle of background on the left drag the eye away from the lines.

it is a wonderful frame filler, gorgeous colours.. But my first thought was like Moira's did you try with the slice in the bottom?
apart from that it is perfect.

Hostas are wonderful plants this time of year - their color and texture of the leaves are exceptional as in this image.
I lean with Moira about the dark area bottom left.

Hostas are even more beautiful in the autumn - you've captured some wonderful autumnal colour Jenn. Love the pattern of the ribbed leaves too.

My hostas look just like that, too, Jenn, except that you saw to make a photo just like this. Crackling great shot.

Great abstract. I like the dark triangle on the left but find the curled tip on the right a little distracting as it's the only part of the image blurred. Fabulous series - look forward to seeing some more images.

I assume Trevor meant 'love' but there again - I too love yellow
and once made an Audio Visual called 'Yellow' which had images that were predominately tha tcolour!
The thumnail has intriqued me every time I opened up My Connections.
I knew I'd love it !
