Thank you, :D I tried that, but it looked weird.
Because it's a very light photo you see.

I love the arms on the teasel, its really cute if you choose to think it looks like a heart :) I love the detail and the way you focused in on that one, while there is another one behind it. I love the colors as well. It's a great shot, congratulations!

What an interesting capture! I love the shapes the "arms" on the teasel creates. It's almost a heart shape, which really draws my eye. :) Whatever the shape, it creates movement in the photo, which I think is great.

Your use of DOF is great. It draws the eye to the teasel, and only the teasel, though the background is still appealing and not overly busy.

In this instance, the teasel fills the frame and the main body of it does create a nice division, but I would play around with taking more shots and using different focal lengths/framing to see how that affects the feel of the shot as well. I always seem to add this tip in my comments, but I think it's valuable... try to keep in mind the rule of thirds. It's not something you have to use but I think it helps give perspective and composure to your shot. With this digital age you can shoot a few extra frames and not have to worry about paying for another roll of film or for developing, so don't be afraid to "overshoot" something while playing around with angles, lighting, etc. I'm not in any way saying this isn't a great shot in and of itself, I just think it's great to play around with it. :) Sometimes those "odd" angles make for the best shots.

Well done and keep up the good work!
