I am new to photography. I love how all of you do these kind of Pictures. I am truly intrigued, so I am going to try new ideas like all of you.

Greets from the Critque Club!

Hi Wayne,
First off let me say that I think this photo shows great imagination and creativity. Well done in that regards! Now, to the meat and potatoes of the critique. The biggest thing that bugs me about this photo is that the colours feel very dull. The reds and greens don't pop out of the picture like I expect them to. The reflections are well controlled on the glass jar, but a bit overwhelming on the silver band. Other than those couple nitpicks, I think this a well executed shot.

Good job and good luck in future challenges!
-Matt

WTF!?! Can't wait to see if they are glued on the bg or what! :) Excellent, intriguing shot (good idea on the administrator's note) 10.

Fun, unique idea! Well done.

Very clever, i guess the beans are stuck to the background. Looks very convincing. 9

LOL!!! Now how did you accomplish that? I've examined this so many times and can't figure it out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, I'm curious to see how you set this up. Very funny. PIty the greens weren't as bright as the red as the contrast of the complementary colours would have had a bit more impact, but this is a terrific way to hit the topic and provide a fun picture.

cant believe someone tried to DQ this.. lol there is a bean holding the jar open.. duh.. nice composition

What a fun photo! Great idea well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very cool effect and well done as well. I'm thinking this is a shot upward through a piece of glass that the jar and beans are laying on? One improvement might be to make the beans all upright, or at least like the ones on the far right. Great job! 8.

I'm not quite sure how you did it but you did it well. Nice composition and arrangement of the jelly beans. -T

Very cool. A touch more light would have really help the jellybeans to stand out, I think.

Good job.Pins and jellybeans stuck to the black background?=8
05/20/2003 09:27:16 PM
Captivating and original.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice and unique take on the challenge. Seems as if the contrast could be boosted just a tad to bring the colors out just a little more. Great idea and great set-up. It had to have taken you quite awhile to set this up. 8 Good luck in the challenge.

Clever... how did you do it?
05/20/2003 02:13:14 AM
How long have you been practising to get the jellybeans into the container? :) I really like how clean this image is. Great lighting. Great composition and the trajectory of the beans is well staged and give life to this image (otherwise, i don't give a hoot about imagery of jelly beans :) Fun image 8

I can see you in the reflection. i can tell this took some work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2003 09:11:32 PM
This is very cute! Bump up the brightness/contrast/saturation and you'd have a better chance at winning
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2003 07:22:49 PM
oh I love it! This is hilarious, and brilliantly executed. I hope you have shared how you managed it in your photographer's notes, and if not, I hope you will, its absolutely awesome! :) Those jellybeans have got a lot of character, and they're brave too. Good story here with that red one holding open the lid. Great stuff!
05/19/2003 06:50:46 PM
good drama in the shot with the implied motion. The colours seem really flat and low contrast though, which doesn't help.

Wonderful image, very vivid colours. 10 Morgan

Good thing you got validated! I really like it, but I wish the green was brighter. Maybe if you had done it on a white background instead of black, but that probably would have messed up how you did this, huh? Still, I'm giving you a 9 because it's cool.

05/19/2003 11:04:50 AM
lol nicely done.
05/19/2003 10:53:10 AM
cute shot..let me see if I can figure it out...picture taken of the jar first. Then jelly beans on glass over the picture? hmmmm...am I right?
Anyway, very original. would have liked the colors in the jar a drop brighter. I would have darkened the black also.

Not sure how you did this, but it's cute non-the-less. The composition is perfect. I do wish there was more light on the shot. Maybe bringing the levels up would have helped. Nice shot. 7 -danny

very interesting theme here and good complementary color as well... this will be a good candidate for a 'how did they do that' article... the impact from this photo comes more from technique than subject choice... = 6
