    Agave make difficult subjects, you need a good DOF to get as much as possible in focus and they cast a lot of shadows on themselves.

    These are my best so far.

    Please C & C.

    It's amazing what jumps out when you do away with color. I didn't even notice these bands before.

    This one might be my favorite.

    Pretty cool, the sepia works really well.
    Number 3 is well lit and has some very interesting patterns but it doesn't have enough variety of colours. It's probably just the plant but the green looks a little washed out anyway.

    Nice work overall, good choice of subject matter.

    Thanks, I think the monitor I was last looking at it with was green-biased. It looks a lot paler now.

    I really like the tonal range in 2, but the blown circle of highlights is unfortunate.

    Actually... that was intentional.
