Texture

"There's an ecstasy about doing something really good on film: the composition of a shot, the drama within the shot, the texture... It's palpable."
William Shatner 

Good 'Ole Captain Kirk hit it straight on.  Texture in a photograph is euphoric and why?  Because an image with texture that you can 'feel' with your eyes has entered into a higher realm  The photograph becomes more than a visual art expanding to one that you can touch...and touching leads to speaking to your soul. 

tex·ture [noun] 1. the visual and especially tactile quality of a surface.

Ohhhhh Kat the mood in these is really spectacular. the textures you chose work so nicely together and the mono chromatic tones give them an entirely different fell so great
