Thank you for all the votes and comments. I am a beginning photographer, and this is very encouraging to me. I will keep the suggestions in mind and try to reshoot this one at a later time.

Nice. I like the way you have used the reflections.
05/27/2002 11:35:00 AM
this is cool. you done good : )

The mirror gives a cluttered effect that I'm not so sure works. A different angle could've cleaned it up, or removing the mirror.

Chrome is tough going, eh? Better control of the reflections would be, well, better. Shooting on a mirror gives a nice anti-gravity feel. A bit static. Maybe a bouncing ball would have given it more interest.
05/26/2002 12:58:00 AM
This is really good. I'm just wondering what it would look like if, instead of using a mirror, you used other surface that wasn't as reflective and maybe colored. It's just a thought, I'm not sure of it.
05/26/2002 12:29:00 AM
Whew -- there's probably 40 teeny self-portraits hidden in those reflections.
05/25/2002 10:11:00 AM
Nice use of the metal jacks and the mirror effect.

Good clean shot give this simple compostion an art feel.
05/24/2002 10:29:00 PM
Nice clarity on the jacks.
05/24/2002 06:18:00 PM
Thiis shot has a lot of snap and originality.

Nice contrast
05/23/2002 04:19:00 PM
Beautiful! No flash reflection - cool.
05/23/2002 12:06:00 PM
Interesting composition. This a reflection? Must be. Had to look at it for a while to figure it out - well done. The only nitpicky comments I have is some "reflection blur", but since I haven't done one of those shots myself yet I don't know if (a) it is avoidable and (b) what you would differently. Other than that, the picture is just a tad too busy for me, but I like that this is one of the pictures where I'm not commenting on the background distractions!

Nicely centered and isolating the objects. -NBT

I tried doing something similar to this, but I couldn't get a good image. I wish I would have thought of the mirror. I really like this.. I think it is the purple and silver combination that does it.
05/22/2002 02:28:00 PM
Nice shot, like the color of the ball and the black reflective surface.
05/22/2002 01:19:00 PM
this is a cool photo. i love the colors
05/22/2002 07:21:00 AM
A beautiful shot. The mirror adds a nice touch.
05/21/2002 10:11:00 PM
Excellent use of the reflective surface. It makes these objects into something very interesting and abstract.
05/21/2002 11:14:00 AM
Sharp focus, bright colors. Very nice.
05/21/2002 11:11:00 AM
i like this photo.. i like it alot :)
05/21/2002 09:44:00 AM
I really like the idea here. I'd guess you did, but I would play around with the composition a bit more -- something doesn't feel quite right to me. Aside from the issue of composition, which is a very subjective issue, the colors here don't seem quite right. Maybe a little too blue? And a little too dark on the ball? The brightness issue is a difficult one though cause that might blow out the jacks.
05/21/2002 09:12:00 AM
Nice use of a mirror...Good job.
05/20/2002 11:56:00 PM
I wanted to try this shot - only catch them falling and show the movement.
05/20/2002 06:29:00 PM
I can see you tacking the picture. It looks like you just bought them.
05/20/2002 05:12:00 PM
I tried this shot.....mine was horrible, glad I didn't submit it. Very well done, the mirror was a stroke of genius.
05/20/2002 02:24:00 PM
Love this one. Color, composition, separation from background, shadowing all excellent. Personal taste:Commercial quality picture.
05/20/2002 01:04:00 PM
nice job, chrome is hard to shoot well with a digital.
05/20/2002 11:27:00 AM
I think it may have been helpful if one or more of the jacks were pushed off the frame, to give it less of a staged look.
05/20/2002 10:52:00 AM
Lighting could of been improved a wee bit. This is creative, fun and done well.
05/20/2002 09:51:00 AM
These jacks look deluxe!! The shine on them is just brilliant!
05/20/2002 06:29:00 AM
Beautiful ! A 10 !!!

It looks like they are suspended in air, nice job.
