I have seen so many shots done like this on DPC; now I know who is the master and started it all! This is SUPERB!

Nice and sharp. I like the colors, and I like how it is all positioned within the frame. The mirror is great. It puts a kind of symetry to the whole thing. Focus and clarity are just awesome. I also like the border. Great shot. Good luck in the challenge.

Is that a show tune? Seem familiar, but I can't place it. Very good color! Very sharp! (Total NIT: somehow the single safety pin seems out of place, no score change for it) Interesting and nice to look at. 7 Swash (neat reflections, too)

I love these kind of shots. Can\'t say I recognize the song. Super composition. I\'ll give you a 10 because it\'s exactly the kind of photogrpahy I like to do. 10 Keep up the good work. (PS my only 10 so far)

This is so gloriously crisp! I love it! Your choice of colors, and your idea of using a mirror as a based really add to the overall coolness of this shot. Awesome!

Very good illustration of a song title. Your manipulation of color, saturation, and contrast really make this picture pop. The border is an excellent choice and adds, rather than competes/distracts/or merely decorates the picture.

If this one doesn't win a ribbon, it darn well should. 10!

good work

Whoa. Great use of reflections and lighting
01/07/2003 08:26:36 AM
I am not one for macrod "studio" shots, but this one just struck me. The colored pins along with that mirrored background just works. I didn't see any needles in there though I know they don't have any color it would have fit the title better. Good job & very creative. 7.

Take my comments for what they are worth for I am just a novice with a new camera. Dodo

A tiny tad more contrast, and you'd have a perfect image. (9)
01/07/2003 01:12:24 AM
!! I love this!!!
01/06/2003 11:59:19 PM
Very nice macro...

Well I don't recognise the song title but I don't care. This photo is stunning. I've never considered using a mirror before but your white ceiling and translucent pins create a stuning effect. It genuinely looks to perfect to be a photo but I'm sure it is. Good composition and framing also. Please post a howto to share this effect.

Very well taken photograph. The focus is clear, the colors are bright and saturated, the layout is very interesting. I like everything but the border.
01/06/2003 04:51:09 PM
You have done a great job making an uninteresting subject look very interesting and the border is well thought out too. 10
01/06/2003 12:50:19 PM
I love the colour and composition of this! The border gives it an extra kick as well. Excellent job!
01/06/2003 12:19:22 PM
cool shot!
01/06/2003 07:52:50 AM
Lots of pins but no needles. Mirror arrangement is a good idea leaving a hard prickly effect on the image which is in tune with the song. No needles though.
01/06/2003 02:56:25 AM
Okay, the detail is out of this world. This kind of shot would drive me crazy composing it. Great colors. Nice image.
01/06/2003 01:13:34 AM
Nice setup. Photo lacks a little sharpness though.
