Once again my much loved blue stars are off my wall, to use here in this photograph, for this "Spot" challenge.
I went out and brought four large packets of "Smarties", to use around the stars for this idea.
I am pleased with the result.

"WOW"..... This is my "BEST" score to date...... Thank you everyone.....

11/22/2006 02:30:08 AM
Well done on this shot, it's really colourful. There's one thing about it that annoys me - you guys over there have the bright coloured smartied still! When I did my smartie abstract shot for Bokeh, all I could find were muted coloured smarties with no added colours.. It's not fair I tell thee! ;)

What a vibrant impact this photos makes when it pops up on my screen! To me, this is "spots" at its best :) I sure can't see any flaws in this one -- plus, it's just so refreshingly appealing! Great job! 10

Wow! You spent some time putting this together, that is if those candies had any kind of labels on them. :D This should go over well with the voters that like that bright, in your face, stock type photo. I think it's quite clever personally. Yes, a little bright, but it's still fun. Good luck.

Wow...what a blast of color!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2006 07:50:31 AM
A bit too over-saturated for my taste, but disregarding that it is certainly a strong composition, sharply focussed and fits the challenge well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2006 03:15:50 AM
Nice colour but border is not good.

11/16/2006 01:55:09 AM

Love this! Great use of colour saturation as it really works for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2006 07:08:28 PM
I need sunglasses to look at this one ;-) I like the spotted stars to add shape to the composition. And you certainly got intense colors!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2006 05:39:18 PM
Feels a little over-contrasted, but I love the colors!
