The glass almost disappears against the background. However, this is a very nicely composed and executed photo.

Nice yellows and nice composition. I like the thin yellow border along with the wider plain white border. Good Luck!

I like your composition in this a lot -- and the yellows come across as very accurate colors on my monitor (no green tinge). Thanks!

Beautiful and refreshing.

Very nice shot. Made me want some lemonade. I don't like the lemon being in the front, it is so much darker and colored than the rest that it draws too much attention. I would have put it in the background. Nice shadows but I would have liked to see them all within the frame so that there was a seamless white border. 5

Very nice lemon photo. I really like the pale colours, it looks really refreshing.

Beautifully exposed, has a nice soft feel to it. Good composition & strong colour.
Outside of the challenge I think it would look even better with a bigger frame - 800x600 but with the current part of the photo at the same size so there's more empty space.
Great shot, well done.

Background is a little washed.....but the rest is great.

I really like the soft focus and almost monochrome color on the back objects. The lemon seems so large and bright.

This is good, makes you just want to reach out an take a bite!

The best lemon shot this week! Great..... The lighting is excellent, the border fits and yellow is just crying out at me! You make me thirsty with this photo.... good one!

More effort needed in controlling the lighting. Overexposure did the setup injustice. The glass is out of focus. More DOF required. Good composition.

More lemons!!

Very nice image. It seems to have been planned very well. I like the different lines and patterns that the lemon and the peel provide to the image. Good job.
02/18/2003 12:55:18 AM
great composition, focus, and DoF... it's just too darned bright
02/18/2003 12:51:38 AM
Great dimension, color, lighting, gradient. Superb shot. The front lemon looks like it's coming out of the frame. My first 10

beautifully done, but I do not like a light background with a light subject much.
02/17/2003 10:26:05 PM
I like this picture, but its too light
02/17/2003 06:54:02 PM
Looks so refreshing....
02/17/2003 12:38:12 PM
Nce concept, great color. The only thing I would change is the border - maybe make it slightly wider or maybe a grey color. Otherwise, great shot!
02/17/2003 10:22:19 AM
Of all the "lemons" this one is my favorite.
02/17/2003 02:57:07 AM
Should have used some color dye in the glass to make it more yelllow. Very nice however... Doing that and then moving the glass farther to the left would give more balance and make a great pic. 8.

its bright its almost like looking at the sun, this probably would look more awesome with a black background.

Nice shot i would have liked a tad more contrast but i realise this effect was intentional...congrats
