Default Close : Banana Leaf

Textures and patterns you say?
You can see the rest here

I like the first for its color and clarity, the second for its composition.

They're both close-ups, Vito. You're probably being sidetracked by the shallow DOF in the second one, but shallowness is a frequent consequence of close-ups.

yeah...i know that...but i mean the first is more showing the patterns and lines of the waterdrops on the leaf.......
yeah....that makes sense...i'll go with that
was the challenge just to take a close up of something other than flowers....or was it supposed to be abstract looking?

As I understand it, a picture showing a different perspective of an object. Looking at something in a way you wouldn't normally see it. When you look at things that way you see new shapes, textures or patterns.
I think the first one fits the challenge better. But I liked the curve of the leaf and water drops in the second. I'm sure that one qualifies to. I don't like the shallow depth of field on some of the pictures that I took though. I think I took them in macro mode but can't remember.

The challenge is to see the design and shape of things, something we all should do no matter what kind of photo we're taking. We need to see, for instance, an arm as a curve, a mountain as a series of triangles, a rope as a diminishing path. It's easier to do this with close-ups because the shapes are fewer and more obvious to the eye.

Any attempt whatsoever to do this meets the challenge.
