    Andre, good lighting and colour in this one. I wonder if a crop removing some of the right side and bottom may help, giving more prominence to the seed pod ?

    The revision not only enlarges the subject when an image of the same size is displayed. More important for me, the subject now is also the brightest large part of the image and all of the brighter distractions are removed. The remaining brighter parts of the image are very small and attractive without being distracting.

    Plus the distracting OOF bit at the bottom has gone as well. Nice image in it's final form.

    I would have cropped differently to lose some of the distraction from the top. Possibly ended up with 5 x 4 ratio, or even square.

    An excellent capture as usual. The first crop looks good but Geoff's 5:4 sounds good too.
