Lovely, lovely shot. The colors and textures are great. Lighting is good, kinda muted. Good luck.10

I bet you got a lot of comments saying that your shot was too dark eh? I think its great, it enhances the contrasts. Great choice of fabric, goes well with the eggs.

This is a nice variation of the typical hen's egg. I like it, but it is difficult to determine the setting. It looks like the eggs are surrounded by flattened snake skin, but can't tell for sure.
This has a painterly quality. 7

It seems all too dark, like there ought to be some contrast somewhere. Everything else seems fine, except it seems like not enough light in the back of the eggs.

I like the strong, but muted colors. Nice lighting and composition. I would love to see this printed on water color or some other tectured paper.

The colours in this still life are superb. I also like the lighting. More light would have spoilt the shot for me. A real work of art.

nice picture

I love the tonal qualities on this.

nice texture.

very lovely still life ...the shadows and colors of the tapestry compiment the quail eggs beautifully.

Personally I'd rather have cropped off the red section at the top because that black middle part seems to leave the top and bottom disconnected.

All I have seen so far are normal hen's eggs and this is the first photo I have seen using different eggs. Good idea, I am surprised no one else has used them. The background fits perfectly and the darkness only enhances this image.

Your lighting here is so wonderful!
03/06/2003 11:30:25 AM
Gorgeous! I love the use of colors and the overall feel of this. Very well done!
03/05/2003 10:56:57 PM
Beautiful! Your colors and lighting are great. One of my favorites this week!

Beautiful still life...love the lighting, colors, and patterns. Those eggs seem like they were made for display on that cloth! 9

nicely done!
03/05/2003 01:46:18 PM
nice job, i like the idea with the egg and snake
03/05/2003 01:15:20 PM
very nice still life. I found that the large shadowsed area detracted from the photo.
03/05/2003 01:10:17 AM
I almost was going to say it's too dark, but maybe not with this one. I like the splash of colors here and there and the overall feel of it.
03/04/2003 09:20:38 PM
Very nice. I really like this shot. Nice composition. Definitely one of my favorites for this challenge. Nice choice to use eggs that weren't just plain. Good Luck!

I hope this one wins the challenge, it was my favorite of the group. I love the dark colors and the way it works with the eggs. This is a great photo!

Really nice - great texture, great colour.

I like the color scheme, the layout, and softness of the photo.

Great colors and textures here - certainly one of the best shots I've seen so far.
