Congratulations Ann, what a great start here at DPC. A simple but strong idea and well executed. Great Job. Needless to say I was already well aware of your talents from STF challenges. Keep it coming.

Ann, what a clever shot, with great exposure. The fact that you got such a clean image, non-tripod, at 1/10 second is incredible. I'm also encouraged to see how well ISO 400 came out. Congratulations on the red ribbon!

Excellent macro! I like the subtle way you brought the message across. Took me a second look. Simply executed, nice texture on the nanner. 8

I really like this picture. I am giving you a 10. The message is very subtle. Great job. Great focus. I think you might be getting my only 10.

VERY ORIGINAL idea! Nicely arranged and composed. May be a bit underexposed but not enough to subtract anything. Thanks for sharing.

Exceptionally well done banana macro. The colors and focus are great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2004 01:53:59 PM
I love this shot! Very nice! A slightly looser crop on the right to balance it out just a tad more would have gotten you a 10 from me, as is a 9

How innovative. I love not only the heart, but the lighting. Amazing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very clever composition. The detail and lighting look excellent.... 8

I swear you can taste this photograph! One of my top picks! Is the heart on purpose?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2004 06:26:03 PM
favourite in this challenge, would have liked to see more on the left, a little harshly cropped, still very creative...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2004 05:14:26 PM
great. very creative, I'd only get rid of that little piece of stringy stuff in cusp of the heart. nice lighting too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2004 04:56:17 PM
Creative and cute. Maybe a little overexposed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nicely done.

This gets the "why didn't i think of that" award...it's so simple...but it works!
Slight blur just above the heart shape. But okay, since it emphasizes the focal
point of the title.
shape. I like it....a 7

very creative, well exposed, one of my top picks this challenge

lovely 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/24/2004 02:14:32 PM
lovely light. one shot that records what a bananna is rather than plays with how you can dress it up. You captured the subtle textures very well. Best thus far.

Nice detail and color, 8

Very Very clever...A ribbon for sure ....10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/24/2004 12:33:13 PM
Nice. I would of removed the one string<?> the light is good, maybe bump up the color a bit, but this is a good entry. I hope you do well.
