I like the lighting here. The soft gray shadows add "color" to an otherwise monochrome image. This approach to the Round challenge is a reminder that roundness is a matter of perspective.

Really great composition & lighting.

Certainly one of the more intersting shots this week. I really like the color gradient of the background between the top and bottom. I think a shot like this does need some sort of border, but this particular border seems to take it a bit too far.

A truly original idea! Took much more time looking at this one, than the others. Maybe some people will find the colors strange, but I like it as it is, hope to see it among the highest pics. 9

very fun idea - round depends on the light and your perspective. Like the blue shadows too.

very neat! At first I was trying to figure out if this arrangement meant anything, or was in some special code, but then I gave up my aspirations of John Nash and just admired the use of light and shadow to create a feeling of round times two!

Quite awesome comp, perspective, and a good color tone. Great idea, well executed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/16/2003 09:49:51 PM
excellent idea the shadows are great, I might have tried a different that would have shown more of the flat sides of the life savers.

Great photo. I love the colors in this picture. I like how it turned out, it's like the life savers are falling to the ground. Good stuff =)

Excellent. The winner - probably! Great lighting, viewpoint, etc. BUT lose the border - it kills the purity (and it\'s uneven!). [9]

Refreshingly different, and an attractive image, and well executed. 8

Cool play with the shadow!

This is a very unique idea, and I think you've pulled it off beautifully. The lighting is the best part, I really like the effect created by the "saver's" shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The shadows, blue tones, and composition, nicely work together to create an interesting image. It certainly causes me to want to 'keep looking' just as a good shot should. The composition seems to be random yet maintaining a degree of symmetry. Inviting and enjoyable capture, nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/16/2003 12:18:13 PM
life savers! (or something. hehe)

wow, very cool. i love the dark shadows. i wish that big border wasn't there though. it detracts from the composition.

clever compositon but the blank area at the top is distracting to me....the crop I guess is why it looks this way. Your light is nice, I just think you tried to include too many for this to really work.

very interesting..... 5

Very neat! I like it alot. Although, and I'm sure others have point this out.... -points to small crumb outside of boarder on left hand side- That's okay. It'll get spot edited out if you offer prints right? At any rate, it adds character. :)

beautiful!

I like this shot but IMO if you had made the center lifesaver laying down it would have made the shot more powerful.

Excellent. Both color and lighting.

Interesting pattern. Binary code. This image is well balanced. Lighting seems just a little harsh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/16/2003 12:58:48 AM
looking down upon them, I think they lose the round feeling, they look more blockish.

The idea is great but the layout seems unbalanced.
