    Here are two photographs of plants I made last weekend.

    The first one is titled "Grain":

    The second one is titled "Leaves I":

    Helpful comments and suggestions are always highly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Sebastian

    Edit: as many people prefer concrete questions: How about the sharpness of the photographs, are they sharp enough, could the sharpness be improved? Any suggestions concerning the composition? How about the black & white conversion, contrast, amount of details?
    Feel free to add other points.

    Thanks.

    Those are both great shots. Love the contrast in the first one.

    My only gripe w/ the first shot is that the shadows are all about the same shade. I'd like to see more variation.

    Other than that, great work.

    Thanks a lot jlbrew and Alpha.

    @Alpha: I see your point about the shadows, would you be able to work up a quick example of how you would vary the shadows, if I sent you the DNG?
