Very creative and original. I like the curvy onion. It reminds me snakes :)

I love the 'out of the box' comp, subject and texture work! Very fun, eye catching and well done!

Very interesting lines from this plant. Your texture complements the color well.

Very interesting. Almost sinister in it's serpentine style too. Nice as usual.

@Dan Creighton: Hmmm..... Sinister is new for me.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

The walking onion sure looks ET and has amazing character. I have a feeling the edges to your filter here could benefit from being darker so they 'contain' the image tighter.

@Ronnie 2¢: It is a weird plant, which is why I grow it. I appreciate the suggestion for darkening the frame.

You have captured fall with the texture and color of the leaves. I've just come in for a quick break after digging up my dahlia tubers, and your photos are a treat. We have similar plants, but you have such an eye for composition and light.
