I really like this picture. Color tonalities are great, as is the composition. The background is excellent. Seems a little soft.

Don't like the color combination of beads you chose. I know this is nitpicking but the beads on their side should be flat with the holes lining up straight out. I do like the background color and the fading out. Again don't like this particular crop for this shot. 5 PTL

I'd have left the border off this one. It is unneccessary. The shot is okay. I like the background fade. The colors are also very well done. - Inspzil

I love the simplicity in this photo. Very cool, and great use of a vertical picture! Also I love the background, iit makes the photo look very 3-d. Gave this a 9 only because I personally don't like the reflection in the purple bead, when all the others are pretty solid. Good luck.

I love this pic. I gave it a 10. Excellent job.

I like this shot, nice colors.

OK this is a good attempt with interesting colours. I especially like how you treated the background hues. Lovely and gradual on the eyes. I know it is a minor thing going on about backgrounds. But this one really works good energy for me. Those jelly bead colours speak loud visually. An interesting composition. The highlights are bright but not overpowering. Not a bad treatment of your choice of subject matter. Personally I would prefer some other element to juice up the interest. Such as toppling bead. Or snaking lurking thread. The beads are interesting but to me not quite captivating without a mini purpose "story" or visual drama to highlight a specific quality of being a bead. That is just my minor personal opinion to be tossed away with the preverbial salt grain. I believe that this is a worthy image with hidden greater potential. A decent effort...6

Nice colors... great background. I think the multi-colored border distracts from the simplicity of the photo. (7)

Nice color contrast and concept. I also like the off-center positioning.
12/24/2002 01:54:10 AM
