Something sweet, anyone?

Something sweet, anyone?

Comment:
Nicely composed. I would have lost the bottom part of the image and upped the contrast a little. Their is a definate "flatness".
The highlights along the bottom edge detract fom the highlights on the fruit itself.
Still nice though

Good histogram spread from pure black through to pure ehite.
One thing I think would have improved the balance would be to have cropped top and bottom. That would have chopped out the small white wedges top left - bottom right

A brilliant example of where the title and the picture are one.
I earlier grumblued at one entry re their titling explaining how their title competed with their picture. This though is brilliant. It would make a great poster with the text as part of that.

This may seem a hard crit of a potentially great picture.
- spoiled by the reflection. It looks like the photographer at a window (I assume thats what it is). The title only seems to explain away an accidental image caught in the eye.
If you can imagine this hung on a wall as it is and then hung on a wall with black eye plus a catchlight I think you would see what I mean.
It may be that it was impossible to get the shot without the reflection, in which case - well done.
If I was still judging it would have to go in the "nearly pile" which is a great shame. Of course to hang it on a wall would be easy after some simple PS editing (I know you can't for this challenge" so I will mark it as I would have done without the reflection.

What can I say. If I was still judging for publications this would certainly go "next round".
A shame about the dark area "top right" fantastic DOF and stunning catchlight. I am ignoring the crazing top centre dribbling down which I suspect looks softer in the original and put down to compression.
Love it

Comment:
As each picture comes on the screen I force my first thought to be "would I want it to hang on my wall" second thought "Would I use it commercially" third thought "would I pay money to have a print" fourth "is it technically correct" (the fourth does not matter if 1,2 and 3 are met)
This makes a yes in all 4.
Excellent.

Stunning blue eyes and beautiful lashes. with a beautiful reflection in the eyes. A different angle from other "eye" portraits.
Exposure is spot on.

Nearly a brilliant ad shot and one I would certainly have put in the "next round" pile but to be used commercially it would need a much longer depth of field. It may be that you not have the equipment to achieve that, in which case exellent on what you did achieve.
A picture that I would have framed if it was reshot exactly as it is but with different lighting, DOF

Comment:
Great - rich colours - the hi-lights, reflections are all perfectly aligned - lovely detail on the inside top of the pens.
From a photographic point of view it is excellent - exposure spot on. Depth of field just right - point of focus, exact.
For a competition I would definately put in on the list.
As a picture on my wall I cannot say it would get space but that is not the point here. I will definately be looking at some of your other work.

Comment:
Good - well lit - space for advertising - good example of depth of field - maybe focus point could have been more off centre. If I was still shooting this type of item in a studio for magazine use I would have put matt black tape/card over whatever it is putting that light "smudge" near the top right
