    Thanks for all your comments. They are very helpful. Really did not expect
to rate so high with this photo but you never know what people will like.
Thanks again....

    I have to admit that at first I wasn't too keen on this photo - too much PP, a subject that's a reminder of how we litter up the planet, but each time I looked at it I liked it more - Congratulations for a photo that really grows on you.

    Although this one was my #1 I never thought the picture would make it a top five, let alone a second place as in my impression those HDR-like pics are not so popular. Glad I was wrong!!! Congratulations!

    Very interesting look, particularly the can. I guess that's the Topaz Adjust/spicy. I like it !!

    Very good finding for the theme. Beautiful colors and great detail.
Though this motif is rather ugly your composition and treatment let it look beautiful. Very well done!

    An "overdone" postprocessing that here certainly works very well, the composition and those aggressive colours have transformed a trash can almost onto a painting... my #3, great job!!

    I like the juxtaposition of elements, that clash yet complement. Lovely technical work to get great colour and clarity. Not overly enamoured of the ultra real PP butthat is a minor point on a strong shot.

    My first impression was the same as yours, "This is the shot for the challenge!" Because this is such a rich image I kept looking and more and more wish that the flower had been plucked before you took the shot. While I like the theme and title, I prefer a more classic image with one subject not two, but otherwise framed as it is. Nice PP which really enhances the look of the image.
