You do very interesting work! Keep it coming!

I checked out your site. The all your gallery would be contenders for some 1st place in some of our challenges we just completed. Its a shame you didn't enter those pictures as well.

I must be missing something. What in the world is this?? Must be an inside thing.
05/14/2003 03:59:20 PM
This is great work. You should make a print available.
05/14/2003 03:23:32 PM
Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments and generous votes.
I shot this scene handheld with a single 100w light source from above with a cone of white paper around the bulb housing to allow for focusing of light on the subject without illuminating my black background. There were so many interesting sections of this ashtray, I found that floating around it snapping off shots from about 8" away with my Sigma 28-70mm 2.8 set to around 60mm allowed me to capture more of what the scene had to offer as opposed to shooting a staged tripod set up.

Thank you all again,
Mike Malloy

This shot matches your name so well. hahaha...just an ashtray. It goes to show that anything can be good, it is the person behind the camera. Great shot!!
05/14/2003 10:07:42 AM
very cool shot.

Very nice curves. Two entries / two ribbons. Congrats.
05/14/2003 05:29:22 AM
Congratulations!! I love this one..Specially because of the composition.
05/14/2003 01:14:28 AM
congratulations on a great shot and a great finish! well done!
05/14/2003 12:26:12 AM
What a cool idea - "re-entry into our dimension". I keep looking at this photo and "still" like it.
05/14/2003 12:18:48 AM
Excellent pic! The composition and clarity are fabulous, and I like the tone too, it suits the subject well. Congrats on a fine finish!

a cross between independence day and the abyss. cool shot.
05/13/2003 05:17:41 PM
I have absolutely no idea what I'm looking at. At all. Nada. Zip. Diddly squat ...
But I like it!
Love the waves/ripples of light, shame there's no colour in them that would be awesome.
Superb shot, 10, I'll be back to find out what the frell it is!
05/13/2003 02:04:08 PM
very good picture.
05/12/2003 09:51:45 PM
very nice jobn on this picture. The background makes the object stand out alot more and brings alot of intrest toh is picture.
05/12/2003 12:15:00 PM
Interesting pic. =)
05/12/2003 12:56:42 AM
Excellent. captures fluidity of glass in its molten form.
05/11/2003 06:22:27 PM
I don't know what it is, but the quality of the glass and the shadows and lighting in it are excellent.
05/11/2003 05:42:40 PM
nice job..i can't really tell exactly what this is..but it looks nice
05/11/2003 02:39:07 PM
The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this picture was SEXY. Very nice and sleek, and I am not sure if this was intended, but it reminds me of a womans body, with her arms up. Nice photo...
05/11/2003 07:48:31 AM
I don't know what this is, so I'll assume its some kind of abstract. And I really think its pretty cool. It has some dynamic motion, good lighting and is a very well taken pic.
05/10/2003 10:47:49 PM
Can't say enough how much I like this photo! excellent job - would really love to know how this was achieved! Sorry but I can't offer any suggestions for improvement - i like this just the way it is. Good luck in the challenge:)
05/10/2003 08:35:10 PM
Great abstract! (what is it?)
05/10/2003 08:32:44 AM
Excellent subject, the light and dark areas within the glass add a nice effect. I'd be interested to know what you actually used here.
05/10/2003 04:19:10 AM
Very well lit. Although it is very difficult to understand what I'm looking at; It's interesting-intriging and not confusing, not uncomfrotable to look at.
05/10/2003 03:10:07 AM
one word ..... WOW

This is amazing ... no idea what it is but WOW 10/10
05/09/2003 03:22:32 PM
Totally awesome shot. Really meets the challenge well, capturing the interesting properties that glass can have. Very eye-catching. 10
05/09/2003 10:11:42 AM
very nice work here, i like the lighting and the black backround highlights your subject. I am not very sure what it is however, but it is very cool looking.
05/09/2003 10:02:34 AM
Just beautiful! Can't wait to see the comments on this one! My favorite so far. 10
05/08/2003 08:06:58 PM
Exposurewise this is good. For composition I think you could lose the dark bottom right corner (crop at the right) and you would gain a lot more impact (but maybe I'm missing something).
05/08/2003 12:28:01 PM
So abstract, this looks like an oil painting. Very interesting and cryptic.
05/08/2003 11:00:15 AM
Wonderful use of light and good choice of processing. I would have titled it along the lines of "female form" or the likes. 10
05/08/2003 08:25:25 AM
This is a beautiful image composed very well. Setting up the lighting for a shot like this is very difficult, but you have gotten it perfectly - 10.
05/08/2003 06:31:12 AM
This is a great abstract, even though I'm not sure what it is. I love the all the wonderful reflections and clarity... beautiful!!!

I have no clue what you used for this shot,
but I really love the abstractness you created.
My fav from the theme !
05/07/2003 10:05:59 PM
beautiful abstract... the water and light make a beautiful combination here... great work :) - 10
05/07/2003 09:33:15 PM
Melting glass,beautiful wall poster,WOW,10 from me!

Pitsa loves good PICS!
05/07/2003 05:36:27 PM
No idea what I'm looking at here, but it's a beautiful image! Desaturating was a great idea -- it adds such mood.
05/07/2003 04:52:28 PM
Wonderful patterns, they keep the eye busy.
Mysterious, sci-fi, erotic, tech, classic,........

Well done.
05/07/2003 04:36:27 PM
Good shot, whatever it is??
05/07/2003 04:11:06 PM
I see a little spec of blue, is that intensional? Anyway, this is one of the best I've come across today!
05/07/2003 12:56:02 PM
Very slick, successful shot. It interferes with my sense of 'taste', however...
05/07/2003 11:35:32 AM
very abstract
05/07/2003 10:58:25 AM
Have no idea what this is, but it looks good. Good job
05/07/2003 08:04:43 AM
It's cool. But what is it?
05/07/2003 07:54:11 AM
love this
05/07/2003 12:45:01 AM
Very abstract, very artistic. I love the smoothness of this picture. It has a great feel to it. Well done.
05/07/2003 12:24:23 AM
