Very in focus, sharp and direct! The crop could be tighter though. Nice shot.

This shot looks like it needs some better lighting. In my opinion, it is essential that this background comes out as a crisp white, so taht the colors contrast effectively with the white. Using a solid white background and a more powerful light would increase the impact of the colors in this shot by a lot. Some post-processing to brighten and increase contrast could help as well, but the adjustments would be more effective if they were made in the process of shooting.

a familiar idea, and you've managed to capture a lot of detail of the pencils, but the picture could use a greater exposure to really brighten up the colours!

I think you could expose it a little more. Maybe some levels adjustments in photoshop would enhance this picture greatly.

I think this picture meets the challenge well but it could use a little more work. I think all you really need is some post processing to really make this one pop. I would start with adjusting the color and brightness so that the background isnít so drab. The whole picture appears to be a bit underexposed and the colors arenít as bright as they could be. I would suggest upping the contrast about 5 or 10% and upping the saturation 5% or so. You can also play around with setting a white point from the background. Finally I would add a bit of USM to sharpen it up a little more and I think you will have a very good picture here.
As it is now I gave it a 4.

A good idea but the lighting lets this down - it is very flat and the white(?) background has been underexposed so much to come out grey. This would be a good use of the exposure compensation features of your camera if it has any.

Little dark but interesting

A little under exposed I think, and try using Levels to correct the colors.

Subject needed more light. (Check your monitor calibration maybe?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A little too dark. Saturation could have been increased a little.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Should be a little brighter. May have looked better with a different color (darker) background.

good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 06:36:44 AM
This could probably have done with being brightened a little.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There is no white balance in this shot. Why?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 01:26:00 AM
why are the colors so dull and dark? great focus, but the lighting and saturation really are below the potential this photo had . . .
