Far and away the best shot of the challenge - Kiwi and I guessed it was you just because the score you said you had. Congrats again Jack.

(Note: to the person who gave this a 1, check your prescription on those glasses and/or quit being a lame.)

That is so cool, how on earth do you do that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2003 08:19:14 PM
Excellent execution, although the idea is a bit played.
05/18/2003 07:34:29 PM
This is beautiful, my fave this challenge. How did you not get any glare??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/17/2003 11:19:09 PM
I love your take on this. Great use of the colors, and it has a wonderful feeling to the shot. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/17/2003 02:42:16 PM
Great shot. Perfectly set up, technically spot on, and very appealing to the eye.
The colours are nice & strong and I love seeing the effect of light refracted through glass.
Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/17/2003 01:23:03 PM
WOW! A ribbon 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2003 05:17:38 PM
Excellent symmetry. Eye catching picture. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2003 11:44:15 AM
Great Idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2003 05:24:55 AM
This is really nice. I really like how you portrayed the primary colors for this challenge. Turned out to be a cool effect. The colors are vivid and literally pop out of the screen. I can't help but wonder, though, how it would look if the glasses had been placed on a mirrored tile so that the strips of color would have extended down through the whole picture. I don't particulairly like how the color abrubtly ends. Since it wouldn't be wise, in this case, to crop out the bottom of the glasses, there should be some way to extend the color down to your surface. 9 Good luck in the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2003 09:31:57 PM
Great shot. I love the inverse colors that happens with this. background has some noise, but jpg compression does that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2003 06:56:45 PM
yes I have seen this before...
well done, my only complaints are that the colors are oversaturated and the line at the bottom is not quite straight.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2003 04:43:20 PM
very very nice!! another image with no error..... too bad i can't vote :(
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2003 12:40:58 PM
This is great - a clever and very striking variation on a theme that had started to become a little tired recently... Really beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2003 12:19:30 PM
Nice pair of glasses... excellent
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2003 11:37:46 AM
Great photo! It looks to me like one of your light sources is back lighting, is that correct? Definitely a 10 for concept and execution!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2003 07:40:28 AM
This is just spectacular! Excellent job with the challenge! 10

Whew! This is perfect! Really great job. I wouldn't change a thing 'cuz this is flawless. I bet you'll win a ribbon. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 11:48:20 PM
Excellently set and shot. Can't say it hasn't been done, but it's a good revisitation of the theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 05:05:15 PM
nice effect...7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 03:18:04 PM
Perfect! There is something to be said to paying attention to details! You have mastered this technique! Good job! 10 -danny
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 01:10:59 PM
good work with the color and the refraction in this image... i like your theme quite a bit... the only minor issue i have is the halos around the glass... I dunno if its coming from saturation or sharpening...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 10:29:59 AM
Great effect. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 10:24:03 AM
very very tight shot. i feel like it needs something else besides the 2 glasses - something happening. still a very high score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 04:12:11 AM
I have to have a favourite in every challenge I suppose and this is mine for the primary colors challenge. A slightly different angle of refraction, but in my opinion better than any I've seen so far. This is excellent work and if it doesn't win this challenge I will eat my keyboard.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 11:21:18 PM
good colors 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 11:06:32 PM
Nice color and composition (maybe a bit busy). This technique is becoming well used - nicely done though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 10:28:57 PM
Great idea!! I love the vivid colors and composition....how DID you get the glass without any reflections/hotspots?! Best of challenge...I see blue in your future :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 09:00:35 PM
The color refraction is really good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 05:43:55 PM
I really like the simplicity of this shot - the only thing that I think could improve it would be to have brought it through on the floor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 05:34:47 PM
good shot. very unusual
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 04:44:34 PM
Wow. Oh, wow. Luminous color, light that's almost painted on, crisp, clear, perfectly proportioned ... a ten. Definitely a ten, from me, anyhow. :-> Great shot, beautiful shot, and moreover it puts the challenge topic front and center in the starring role.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 02:52:15 PM
Very ....very good work. Bravo.....!!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 11:09:12 AM
This is one of those shots where I say to myself, "DARN! I wish I'd thought of that." Congrats. Nice work. I bet this will do well. I really like the use of two glasses. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 09:26:43 AM
this is a great shot, but there's one of these every week! 10 for execution, 5 for originality, so hmmm - 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 09:21:17 AM
Great idea, very well executed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 05:54:02 AM
So is this one also in the glass challenge? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 05:28:32 AM
And another vitim of SARS (Setzler Artwork Rendition Syndrom), Well done nevertheless and an interesting new perspective of this technique. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 02:37:43 AM
What an attention getter. Sharp and vibrant, very orginal. A 10 without a doubt.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 01:06:55 AM
This technique has become somewhat cliche for me, but this is very well executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 12:27:38 AM
Unbelivably excellent. This one caught my eye in thumbs and is just as good in full size. I like that you split them down the stems as well. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 12:09:58 AM
Wow! Awesome image. This trick has been used several times in DPC, but yours is very good.
