Local Mall has this wonderful display. Had to go back 3 or 4 times to reshoot. Minimized glare as much as I could.

Good composition, nice colours. Good one.

WOW take your pick. I could go wild there...lol. Excellent composition and of course colour. Very well done.

Nice colorful shot, with excellent focus. The composition is good, and I like the border.

I think it is great how you got all the gumball machines in focus yet have the entire background very out of focus. I'm newer here and would love to know how you achieved this. great job.

Nice overall pattern created here. They seem so far away, though. It may be worth exploring to get a little closer and still see if the pattern can be retained while giving us a better look at the candy? Anyway, fun colors and nice work.

This seems like a really good idea, but looking at it....I dunno. Focus is sharp, color is rich and true. Background isn't great, but well blurred, so not really an issue. Glare off the gumball machines isn't that bad. 8 Rob the Swash

Excellent color and focus.

This shot is so sharp and clear - you must have one 'nice' camera (along with fine photographic skills of course). Nicely framed/cropped (border might be just a 'tad' wide for my tastes). Shallow DOF suits it well. Very nice!

hmm ... heaven, shame the background is evident...but I suppose there is no way around that

Excellent shot. The best I've seen so far in the challenge. The use of depth of field and the overall sharpness of the machines really makes it "pop". This could be used for an ad. 10

I need to get a wide angled lens :-) This is a great shot! I like how the gumball machines seem miniature in size. Your DOF and focus are perfect. 10 -danny

I like the vibrant color and the crispness of this shot... - setzler

the frame brings it out. good work with that. nice pic.

I dont' think I've ever seen this many gumballs in one place before. You've captured this well. Nice that you kept the background blurry and unrecognizable.
04/14/2003 09:47:10 PM
Very, VERY cool. You got lucky finding that setup! And great lighting/cropping, and the background is nicely blurred also. 9. You're the winner so far. ;)
04/14/2003 08:37:52 PM
I love your DOF and the lighting is perfect! Taken at a mall??? You should do very well here!
04/14/2003 07:57:15 PM
Excellent shot!! I love dof here. Great focus and very crisp and clean.
04/14/2003 06:44:23 PM
Very nice wide angle shot. Nice and vivid, nice and sharp! 9

Love the apature setting here.....nice, good colors, light, and focus.
04/14/2003 02:14:00 AM
Very well done
04/14/2003 01:48:03 AM
Great depth of field, awesome color.
04/14/2003 01:21:30 AM
I would have liked to see this cropped closer to remove the pipes or whatever they are and the store background....then all you can see are the gumball machines. Otherwise a very nice photo
