Thats me ... kinda a self portrait.

The fruits and veggies are suspended on fishing line and attached to a frame I made out of wood a mic stand and a pool vacum pole. Once the set up was complete I just set the timer and got in the middle of the hanging food. My neighbors think I am insane...maybe their not to far off.

Took a number of shots even had my daughter take a few...will post after the challenge.

I like this shot...hope it does well :)

Hiya Coley - great shot. I'm a graphic designer and I work for local government in the UK and we'd like to use the picture. We'll be sending you an email with more details shortly on COLEY1@ROGERS.COM.

Fantastic, my fave this week. Maybe because I enjoy juggling. Of course I like your idea better. I bet I could even get 8 items up that way!! Should have won a ribbon!

That was a lot of setting up Cole and definitely deserved a ribbon in my book.

I`ve been puzzling all week over who took this pic...I knew the face but couldn`t fit it to a name :)
Congrats on the high placing.

Fruit hanging from fishing lines, hmmmmmmm.
You sneaky little bugger, you had me fooled along with everyone else no doubt.
I love it :) Damn!! I just wish I thought of it.

OK, I can juggle 3 sometimes 4, but 8!?!
haha,
great shot, I like that you are looking up on him, it makes it feel bigger somehow.

My favorite of the week. Excellent idea and well carried off. I wish it wasn't quite as bright but excellent nonetheless.

Incredible image. I can't wait to hear how you pulled it off. Beautiful composition and crop. Technically perfect.

There is some noise around the subjects but this is an excellent catch!

Wow. Real juggling or not this is a great photo. Bright primary colors, sharp clear focus and great shadows. One of my favorites.

I really love this photo. I think this is the best use of stop motion shooting I've seen in the contest, and so I am awarding you my first place pick. The moment in time you captured in time is just perfect. I think having this in bright sunlight, while looking good on the veggies though, is one small weaknes on the person. But overall, this photo works very well, so you get a 10!

Great idea, well executed. The only (niggly) thing i would change is to take the label off the banana. 9

Lively, joyful and full of tension. The shadows on hte shirt are really fantastic. Great job.

validated??? Why??? (my guess is that there was someone underneath him throwing the extra fruit). I think this shot is very humouristic and still nice to look at!

Now that aint easy.

Very awesome! Is this for real?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 02:14:17 PM
WOW! Fantastic image. Objects are all stopped, and how do you juggle 8 objects?
Look foreward to reading the How.
My ribbon pick.

Nicely captured and good use of colour to add interest to the image.
Can`t wait to see how many "takes" it required.
Very well done.

What the...!!?? That's really cool, hope you mention how you did it. You should have thrown in a Big Mac. Oops that wouldn't be healthy then... :D
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2004 10:45:03 PM
You really stopped the movement. And cought the color. And the composition. Sure you don't have "juggle" in your name? Did someone else toss additional objects into the mix? Regardless - shows great skill. Congratulations and good luck with the challenge.

Wow! Just about the time you start wondering: "Did they REALLY do that?" you see the validation stamp to confirm that you really did that. . . .VERY cool :) I love your use of bright colors against the great blue background.

Very difficult to juggle with eyes so squinted. Yet, the colors and comp are great. Bumping up.

Great photo! Marvelous color. Stopped motion of fruit looks almost too good to be real.

GOOD COMPOSITION
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2004 08:23:29 PM
I like your theme. I think it is very clever. While this shot is very clear and very colorful, something bothers me about it. I don't know if it is too bright or what. It doesn't look like the fruit could really be in those positions naturally. It looks to me like they must have been added onto the picture later or something. I'm not saying you did that, but that is the impression I get from it.

Wow! Great Shot!!!

That's a lot of fruit. I like the look on his face, it says "I'm not worried about this at all, I got it under control."

Wow, this is great! I'm sure you'll be a top finisher :)

Whoa! What a juggler! Perfect demonstration of stop action.

Mucho Cool...and impossible to juggle! so cutto's on the effect!!

Great composition. I'm not sure whether I like the square crop on this or not. Perhaps a portrait crop would have lent a sense of gravity to the cascade of objects. Regardless you chose a wonderful background and I love the interplay of the blue gradient sky in the background with the gray shirt of the subject. Am I seeing some moire in the shirt or is that a textured pattern? Your exposure looks like it was difficult. The shadows cast on the subject are hard and the hot spots on the subject's cheek and fingertips tend to show that you probably had some difficult lighting to work with. The exposure on the all the fruit still allows some texture and details to show through; the texture of the lighter, more reflective oranges and the contours of the duller peppers show a nice range. I wonder what camera you used and what settings allowed you to get such a good exposure with strong directional light like this.
You did a good job catching the action here. Your subject is personable, perhaps its the backwards facing cap or maybe just the fountain of fruit but I can imagine him to be a brother or uncle who is just showing off at a family get together and making the kids laugh. The shot seems playful and yet it looks technically diffcult.

Good job.
