Not sure that the red light or the downward angle is appealing.

Nice use of color.

I like the red lighting how ever the pencil(I think thats what it is) on the right isnt very clear which I find distracting, maybe if it had been on the left or even removed?

Just a little dark. I like the idea of red but red lights always seem to screw up a photo more than help em when used as the sole light source.

Use of natural light with a red light highlighter gets a better effect often and gives you more options for photo editing.

I think this would have looked better with natural color, nice effort
05/23/2002 06:53:00 PM
Too red

Good focus but a think a better background would have improved this shot and better lighting
05/22/2002 10:50:00 PM
Lighting is kinda strange, was that intentional?
05/22/2002 04:50:00 PM
Is there a subliminal message? Why the red tint? Photo 9 Creativity 6 Games 7 total 7

I'm not sure that I like the red tint, but the composition on this shot is ok... I would have flipped the O that is damaged to another letter... good job!!

Dark Room Boggle? :)

Boggle, egg, leak, cog, peg, beg, bog, peck . . . oh, sorry, got distracted ;o) Good shot, all nicely in focus, just wondering why the red?
05/21/2002 04:18:00 PM
Certainly the most interesting colors of the boggle shots. Good focus..just not that interesting overall....sorry
05/21/2002 04:11:00 PM
I like the red effect
05/21/2002 09:43:00 AM
Red lighting doesn't really do it for me
05/20/2002 01:17:00 PM
sorry, this doesn't do much for me, I don't like the coloring. The "O" is distracting since it's scuffed.
05/20/2002 11:04:00 AM
Not sure why you did the red..? I'm guessing to make it more interesting. It's not a bad shot.
05/20/2002 07:23:00 AM
just marvelous and mind boggling
05/20/2002 02:23:00 AM
I don't care for the red cast to this photo.
