OH MY GOOD! This must be the most fabiolus shot i have eer seen. It is breath taking. The structure, the composition, the colours. All is perfect.

Beautiful composition with rich color and textures. The line angles give this impact that just blows the viewer away ! Congrats on your ribbon !

I didn't get a chance to vote on (or even look at!) the texture challenge and I am so sorry! This photo is wonderful, and I am so glad that you got a ribbon with it and it ended up on the home page where I could snap it up into my favorites folder! Really lovely work, congratulations.

Wish I'd made time tolook through the entries for this challenge! I love the strength of the parallel lines and curves...

Congrats on a great shot.
All the elements (composition, light, sharpness and colour) come together in this for me.
Very well done.

hmm, I only gave this picture 5 and it came out 2nd. I'm trying to think, why?.
I don't get a strog 3d textur feel from this photo. Bit confused how this texture would feel, I know these are soft feathers but I get a metalic wire feel from the photo.
I usually sit close to the monitor and all these strong lines almost gave me a headache but its better if I move about 1 meter from the monitor but I did not do that dureing voting.

After takeing a longer look and thought I would probably vote 7, from 1 meter distance.

This was the one I was sure would win - and so narrowly second :-( You received thirteen more tens than did my shot, though ...

very nice composition, love those lines and colour is good. well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2004 04:46:13 PM
Now this is a good shot. The composition is fantastic. I think this could be sharper and appears to have some noise (little dots going up the gold stem), but the colors and presentation make up for it.

stunning work.. excellent in all respects 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2004 12:32:05 PM
Excellent color... good composition and lighting as well. This looks like feathers, but it also looks like really thin wires. I wish I knew exactly what these are, but I've liked this photo everytime I see it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2004 12:08:31 AM
The fact that there seem to be about twenty feather pictures and this image still pops out as a 10 is amazing. Great lighting, fine focus plane, just lovely.

very good indeed, great texture and also interesting and well composed. 10

Edit: This is my 1000th comment, so looking for a nice image to critique - gone through them all and this stands out by far as being the best. Colours are so righ yet calm. Will be in my faves ASAP.

Good work and hope you get the blue you deserve. JP

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2004 06:48:24 AM
Wonderful abstract-ish shot. Great light, great feel. Not quite sure it really gives an impression of texture - it seems more graphical than that, more about lines and colours than surfaces, but I'm sure the impact of the shot will get past that in most voters minds. Still a 7.
