Critique CLub Comments by Grayce
Wonderful composition with very appropriate framing. It's a simple composition, which I admire. No clutter here! Straightforward, uncluttered.
The exposure is very good and could almost fit in the symmetry challenge as well. The hot spots are acceptable, and lend credence to this flame picture. One of the few subjects that can use hot spots to advantage!
There is no digital noise here, nor artifacts.
Focus is excellent.
Overall excellent image and deserving of high scores.

Great capture! I love the way that the wooden part of the match fades into darkness.

Technically perfect!

Deserves numero 1 in my opinion. I wonder how you did it though ..

..and how many matches it took to get it right d:c)
04/04/2003 01:19:38 PM
I'd love to know how you did that!

Getting the exposure on this must have been difficult. I commend you on your efforts, as the payoff is excellent! This is very nicely done. -danny

Excellent! I wonder what the camera was - mine wouldn't do this no matter what I did.
04/01/2003 04:50:28 AM
Great capture, but I want to see the whole flame!
04/01/2003 12:46:08 AM
Well done. Great lighting and exposure. You've captured "the moment" and the lines of the sulfur sparking was a bonus that makes this image great.
04/01/2003 12:28:58 AM
I hope you did not damage your camera, wonderful photo, colors, comp. perfect.

Wow! That's really something! I'm very impressed with how sharp you were able to capture the tip of the match. Congrats! - 10

Nice. Shame you missed the bottom of the flame. Good idea. How many shots did you take before you caught it?
03/31/2003 06:39:44 AM
Very nice. 9 :)
03/31/2003 05:13:07 AM
WOW factor has kicked in finally. Great photo. I like the framing the exposure the stop action, the clarity. Great vision for a shot and executed nicely. My first 10 of the week. Come to think of it I've given no 9's either.
03/31/2003 05:05:54 AM
Excellent idea, and you really pulled it off well. 10 out of 10 from me.
