I nearly didn't enter this challenge as I just couldn't think of anything to do.....then I remembered a box of sugar lumps in the kitchen cupboard....

Had fun building the wall & managed to do the shoot without knocking it down ! Now I'm off to tidy it all up...

PS I wonder how many of you will spot the nasty blob of muck on my sensor (on the 'breached' lump). Just didn't have time to clean & reshoot. Sorry.

Wow ! What a surprise ! I've been watching the scores on this one very carefully & hoped I might squeeze into top 10 - I couldn't believe it when I looked this morning & there I was on the front page.

Thanks so much for all your votes and comments - its amazing how a last minute idea turned into my first ribbon.

Oh, and I've cleaned my sensor now ;-)

06/01/2005 01:48:56 AM
Great job! Congratulations and well done. You do have a nasty blob of much on the cube in the sugar pile. Looks like a dirty sensor. You probably just didn't have time to clean it. ;-) :P

Great imagination. good thought.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/31/2005 04:16:49 PM
Does the cube seen in the rumble really fit into the slot above it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/31/2005 12:03:40 PM
How did you get the white to look so natural? I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/31/2005 10:04:21 AM
Very nice job of capturing the texture and the motion of the sugar. The sugar wall with the fine sugar flowing throught he breach is an interesting photo. I would not have thought somthing as simple as sugar could be so enjoyable to look at. Very nice job. 7

I like this one! Very creative idea and very nice lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2005 05:29:38 AM
I like it! It's an action shot, it's original, and it made me smile! Only thing I'd change is the completely unnecessary backlighting, and maybe step back an inch or two to include the front of the pile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2005 04:53:34 AM
Nice concept and title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2005 02:01:31 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2005 11:46:58 AM
wow, this is SO neat :] i'm glad you put more thought into this rather than taking another picture of an hourglass.

Clever approach to granular. Good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2005 04:39:44 PM
i really like the idea and i can see the amount of effort you had to put in this! and if you have photoshop or any other kind of picture processor, a slight rotation would do this picture better
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2005 04:04:23 PM
Very good idea!! This looks like it took awile to set up. Only thing...perhaps that lighting could be a little more even. Fairly dark at top and has a unappealing yellow hue. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2005 03:36:48 PM
Very creative entry with good time exposure to allow the silky flow. The wall looks great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2005 03:09:44 PM
I like the originality of this shot...it looks like sand leaking out of the Great Pyramid.

Very inventive, and the title makes me laugh.

Base: 5
Technical: +0

Reminds me of Pink Floyd. Very creative, well executed. A bit too yellow, but that's okay. 10.

05/25/2005 09:17:49 AM
