Hmmm not to many liked the background - and yes it may have given it more punch with a solid background - can't say I liked the colour, but not many noticed not only the different transportation icons but the splotches that if you put paint or ink on something spinning like that - you'd get splatter similar to the blobs behind the globe. It's a tough crowd out there.

This shot just screams for a different background. With a less busy backdrop this is a 10. as is, I love the motion in this shot. It is also nicely metaphorical for the motion of our world as it spins by. One of my favorites this challenge. 8

great idea! The colors are a little bland. I think a black or red bckground would hae made this pop!

Great idea and the globe looks good, but I don't understand the background at all, it looks like a blanket. Would be much more effective with a solid colored background

hot spots kill this shot
04/13/2005 09:57:05 PM
interesting choice, terrible background. oh, i mean terrible. please save that for the kids, not dpc.

background is way too busy

Love the globe spinning, but don't care for the background. It is too bad because I think it will impact your score negatively.

very cool idea, if the backround was less distracting this would be much better IMO.
04/12/2005 08:39:46 PM
I would have used a different background, maybe a solid one that doesn't distract from the globe.

Love the spinning globe! The fleecy background blanket is a bit overwhelming though.

This is a good idea and it works very well. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the background. Great shot though!
04/12/2005 03:23:34 AM
Great shot! Nice idea, well executed. Must have taken more than a few tries!! =0).. I think we have the same table.. lol

How incredibly interesting and such a simple idea as well as being a pretty good photo. The spinning globe is quite clear. Interesting background given the images of transportation. Would have like a bit more variety regarding tint.8

Different.......I like it, but maybe a more creative surrounding would help this one out.
04/11/2005 01:28:41 PM
The background is killing this, a solid dark colour would really amphasize this somewhat.
04/11/2005 10:32:49 AM
The highlights on the globe are quite distracting.
04/11/2005 09:59:20 AM
Great idea.. I don't know what kind of camera you're using, but If you have a hotshoe on the thing, I'd certainly try and invest in a bounceable flash, or try and find a good diffusion method.. (stretched shirt, tissues, nylon, whatever).. as those two hotspots really glare out. Of course.. had you found a way to add a *mouth* too... and sell the "eyes" effect..

The spinning globe is really nice. The background is really bad though - this would have been so nice against a plain black or white background.
04/11/2005 05:26:24 AM
Not a bad idea but what is that background all about? It's very distracting and is in better focus than the spinning globe. Perhaps a slow sync flash here could have stopped the motion of the globe while keeping the motion blur. That focus would have helped draw the eye back to the globe that should be the main subject of the image. Also, if the pattern on the backdrop is meant to be symbolic then perhaps use some negative space around the globe to really make that aparrent. Finally there is a brown/yellow tint to the image that is most aparrent in the whiter areas of the backdrop. This shot is a really good idea that needs just a little work in my view. 7

not extreme enough

Background distracts, has no relevence, a solid color backdrop would enhance the subject.
