This sure is a creepy looking plant, I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like this before. I think the middle part really does give it a kind of alien feel too, this is totally weird.

I really like what you've done with this, too bad there's a lot of visible noise in the background bokeh of the photo.

Nice clarity and detail combined with bold colours in this capture.
It would have been great to align the vortex of the plant to the centre, but otherwise a fine result.

I might run it through Noise Ninja 2 to see if I can remove some of the noise.

This is a very cool looking shot. The plant does have a creepy look to it but your photo actually shows how beautiful this plant actually is. For me the colors are really great and really make the photo pop. I also really like the contrast as it also adds to the color in the picture.

Thanks for sharing.

Excellent capture. The colors are somewhat surreal, but then they go well with that "alien" look. On this one, the noise doesn't seem to detract imo, but rather enhances the picture.

Mmm, this is pretty cool, and rife with photographics possiblilties, I think.

Do you have any more shots? Can you make some more?

Here's the other, unfortunately one leaf was pointed directly at the camera so was out of focus but maybe you can do something with it.
