* Greeetings from the Critique Club *

WOW... I have to try to comment on this one, huh? Yikes!

First of all, spectacular job! This was one of my favorites from the challenge (in fact I gave it a 10). I can't believe you actually shot this through the storefront glass and didn't have any glare/noise. The colors are outstanding. The composition and angle of the shot are perfect. There are a couple of ties (orange in middle left and purple in upper right) that are slightly out of focus, but that's only noticeable at extreme close-up.

You managed to really wow me with the color & lighting - especially now that I know you shot it through the glass. I don't know how you managed to keep that interference at a minimum, but you definitely know your way around PP or you got really lucky! LOL

What else can I say... Outstanding job & congratulations!

Just my 2 cents...

Jimmy

Somehow, this shot has trademark Banmorn properties! Lovely.


It's like the Kimmel Abstracts, only with ties.... you really know how to work on an angle !

Congrats,

Thanks, Skip! I wouldn't worry about it...anytime soon...but someday.

Another strong abstract! You're pretty darn good at these. :)
I love the colors and clarity. Great job and Congratulations!

Many congratulations RoB!!!! Your picture should have been blue :)

06/08/2005 08:53:21 AM
Beautiful colors, tones and composition! Beautifully lit and so sharp! How do you do it?!? Congratulations! This is another reminder that you don't need a fancy dSLR to take professional quality pictures.

Images containing repeated objects without a specific central focal point typically do not do well at DPC but are favorites of mine. Glad to see this fine image ribbon. Congratulations!

great job rob! a fine photo here. Where did you do this at?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2005 02:01:45 AM
Probably one of the most colorful s7000 challenge entries I've seen.. nice job. I should go back to the Fuji for challenges, the Pentax is letting me down. lol.

What a way to show it indecision. The pattern of different colors, and the dividers really draws the eye. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2005 11:10:44 PM
I really like the abstractness of this. Very cool 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2005 08:58:41 PM
Super composition and perspective. Color and lighting is excellent. One of the best images of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nicely positioned. good colouring. Good take on the challenge.

I liked it, you can really see the textures
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 02:14:31 PM
This is pretty, I love the sharpness and colors. What are they? Good choice of angle to shoot from, it adds interest.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 12:28:09 PM
Here is a genuine decision. I'd take the purple one. ;-)

fabulous composition and colour
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great colours, composition and lighting. The textures of the ties look awesome. A very nice shot indeed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 10:43:34 PM
Colors are excellent and good use of lines here. I don't see a decision as much as I see a choice; however, I still gave a good score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 07:32:55 PM
Great colors, clarity and composition, should do well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 03:48:10 PM
I don't know what the picture is. I lowered my score a little, because I don't understand what the decision is. But I upped it again, because I like the color and composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 01:20:52 PM
Beautiful colors and composition, just don't see it meeting the challenge.

cool, simple, elegant and capturing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 01:39:41 AM
I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision. Good photo, good try, title helps too much.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 09:52:38 PM
wonderful photo. appealing cubby-holed colors, textures, patterns. I see many options, but I don't see a decision...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 09:04:30 PM
My first '10' given so far!!! Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 06:56:16 PM
Good color - visually interesting- but where is the decision?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 06:23:13 PM
Though repetitive, this is anything but boring. Wonderful textures and rich colors lit almost flawlessly make this one of my top ten picks this week.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 05:41:15 PM
I love this photo! It's kind of funny cause all the ties are almost hte same, but you have to pick a color! I choose the gold. :) Good clarity, excellent idea. One of my favs in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 05:05:27 PM
Colors are attractive. Good display of the assignment.
