Having fun going through your portfolio. I wasn't a member during this one. What a smashing perspective. Nothing expected about this one. Well staged and executed. The title tops it off perfectly.

Terrific photo....great choices of color. Fantastic lighting...I would've given this a 10 in the challenge had I been a member of DPC when this was entered...good job!

Sonja,

This is a very nice photograph. The lighting appears to be very effective. The props are good and help this photo meet the challenge.

You have taken a common shot and transfigured it into a piece of art. Your perspective in which you have captured this moment has made an ordinary photograph outstanding.

I agree with other DPCers that say there are too many flower shots being taken for the challenges. If all of the flower shooters employed the originality of this image it would be a joy rather than a task to review them.

This is my favorite of the challenge and I am at a loss as to how 5 to 16 folks feel this an inferior shot...

Keep up the good work, and good luck in the future challenges.

Bob

Gorgeous. The angle of the stems combined with the light direction is great. Good job.

Sonifo, I agree with mag. The angle and perspective do make this a very fresh and original approach to the subject. Color is outstanding as well. Congrats!

Congratulations, AGAIN!! You know if these were real ribbons, you'd have to get a new trophy cabinet for them.

Lovely shot Sonja.

Excellent shot. Probably my favorite this week. As I stated before, good job at being creative with your tulips. It goes to show that a little creativity can go a long way.

I love this one, I gave it a 10. Beautiful composition and great idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2003 11:01:51 PM
Nice composition. I think the top purple tulip is a bit too close to the border. A little more breathing room might have helped. Maybe a bit less border. Good lighting and colors. Very nice photo. 8 md

Are they camera shy? :) I like the colors here - the shadow is almost completely gone, nice job. The inside part of the border doesn't help it. 10 anyways. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2003 08:51:43 PM
Very nice shot; colors are very nice, and I particularly like the perspective. However, in my opinion, the border is definitely too overpowering.

nice job on the white background it turned out very nice

I really enjoy the unusual perspective and creative use of color. The lighting and exposure and very good. Composition is nicely done as well, though a little tightly cropped around the top flower and at the bottome of the vase. Overall, a very successful image! Well done...~Renee

Very nicely done. Like the unique angle. However, I'm not to thrilled with the border and the close crop on the top. Overall, nice job! 7

I really like the ange you shot at. It's not the usual straight on shot. And I think the purple vase compliments the tulips well. I don't like the thick border. It seems to heavy for such a delicate photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2003 07:53:37 PM
Wonderful photograph. I love how the shadows on this are pretty soft. I like the angle this photo was taken at also, and the photo seems so clear.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2003 07:23:18 PM
Love the lighting, focus and DOP. Also, use of space. Would like less of the black border, I think.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2003 05:40:20 PM
Nice perspective, vibrant colors. The flowers really set themselves apart from the white background.

Beautiful. I love it. Definitely one of my faves. One thing I'd like to change -- the funky reflections in the vase. Good luck.

Nice lighting, interesting composition and good subjects. This is very nice indeed. Well done.

I love the placement of the subject and the white background. It is an appealing photo, and the lighting is great. Only detraction for me is the wide border, but that is a matter of preference. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2003 08:35:36 PM
A really good entry. I love the graphic touch of this one and the unusual angle/composition. Very well done. You managed to capture great delicates tones.
But I HATE your border, it totally distracts from the picture! And it's toot close from the top and bottom! You should definitely give more white space around the flowers! This is really too bad.
OK I will only give you a 9... :)

Great shot taken from eye-catching angle. I really like the full depth of field that you've used. It really lets the eye concentrate on the entire image. Beautiful work. Congrats. 10

Lovely shot, I really like the perspective here, maybe the composition is a little tight, more light around the edge, just a tad mind.
