I enjoy the occasional abstract, hard-to-identify close up. It's fairly obvious what we have here, but I like the lines and the colour of the green. I suppose in many ways it's a companion to this shot from a few months ago...

I tried something I've not done for a while to get the tones and the subtle soft-focus - a 'Red' channel layer set to Soft Light blending with a Gaussian Blur of 6 and reduced opacity. Also, a Curves layer for contrast and minor colour toning, and the ubiquitous vignette.
