I have put up 3-4 pictures for sale before, and I never sold a single one. :-) That's why, if you want a print, the fullsize can be found over at mrx

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2004 10:59:23 PM
really great! top ten.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2004 12:21:41 AM
excellent colours! congrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2004 11:34:51 PM
wow that's great. This will probably be the top 10. The only thing that might hold it back is the unecessary border (I think it just takes up space and detracts from the image) and well, hrmm...your lemon seems a bit more like an orange to me lol

very interesting though I'll definately have to check back to see your details as to how you did this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2004 06:30:28 PM
Very nice work. The lemon looks a little oversaturated. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2004 04:05:49 PM
Excellent picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2004 09:09:20 AM
Great color combination, 90 degree rotation makes it more interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2004 05:05:37 AM
the colours of the water are much nicer, excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2004 11:10:13 PM
As far as setup shots go, this one is terrific. Think you may have cropped a little too close on the right (would like the lemon not to be cut out) but other than that this is superb... but I'm sure you know that from your (most likely) very high average score. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2004 10:57:26 PM
many many lemon shots. very few as good as this. great action capture and an interesting angle of presentation. super saturated colors really make the shot pop. well done.

12/09/2004 05:15:06 PM
Exellent work!! Just love the way you make the other colors bring yellow in front!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2004 01:59:04 PM
Now this is just super!!! I thought my lemon photo was good until I saw this. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2004 09:22:32 AM
The best thing about this picture is the color! And not just the yellow - green, blue, red. I also like the balance of the compositionn - rotating it makes one forget about the physiscs and pay attention to the shapes and forms - chaos on the left and simplicity on the right. That is what makes the yellow standout. Tops for this challenge. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2004 02:40:26 AM
you like dropping things in water,ehhh? nice water and lemon color.a winner for sure.10

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2004 10:09:58 PM
This might win! Very cool. Very sharp. You didn't need to rotate it, well maybe it makes it better. good luck with this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

More like something that should hang on the wall of the Museum of Mmodern Art.
The traditional on the right and its abstract child on the left. Cool Bumping high..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2004 05:36:05 PM
excellent. This really stands out from the crowd (of lemon shots! :-) ) I think an easy top 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2004 04:26:24 PM
This is probably the best lemon shot in the challenge, great stop motion and lighting!
