Very, very nice. Light and shadow, white and black, and the grey for neutrality. It looks like you have a couple little pixel artifacts up in the right corner but aside from that this is perfect.

I love this photo. It's simple yet complex at the same time. The diagonals running through out and the tones you've captured are wonderful. I really love the juxtaposition of black, gray, and white. Great job!

Great contrast. Excellent setup. Definitely satisfies the theme. Good Job.

Absolutely one of my very favorites, this is a shot I would hang on my wall in a heartbeat! Love the use of B&W, the composition is terrific, and I love the concept and execution. Expect to see you on the home page!

beautiful image and excellent use of lighting. prefer to not have a border, seems to distract somehow. Excellenty photo work. thanks

Nice shadow. I wonder if you could have somehow modified the angle to show the white feather completely on the black background, with the shadow on the light background. Nevertheless, the tonal transition looks good. No spot editing has got to be frustrating too (I've got a dead pixel of my own to worry about). 7

Wow. Stunning work. The light and contrasts in this photo are really marvelous. Composition is flawless. I just wish the feather were as sharp as its reflection. Still, wonderful image.

Ok. this is my favorite one. It is perfect except for a little grain in the bottom left gray. I'd suggest neatimage, but i can never get it to work right. great job. 10

I like the black on the top right balanced by the gray on the bottom and how both set off the feather and its shadow. the texture of the feather is a nice detail - I wish I could see it better. The area wher the eather and its shadow overlap is a bit busy with all the "feathering" lines - I might have tried to continue the upper shadow to beneather the feather - I do like the feathering against the solid dark and the feathering of the shadow against the grey forground. I'd edit out that tiny white spot on the right, top... but now I'm just getting picky. Nicely done 7

Really nice shot, love the negative effect created by the relection..... there's just a few little spotty marks, or fingerprints, or something in the light side which let this down just a fraction. It's a great image though. Good luck, Todd.

phenomenal detail and excellent use of contrast to create your theme... =10

Pure, simple and beautiful. Nicely lit, excellent challenge take, extremely well done. Great texture in this photo. Good job! -10-

Great shot. A less battered feather would have made a killer shot. Just my opinion. The clarity of the shot is exceptional. 7 (I haven't seen an 8 yet this challenge)
05/26/2003 01:57:10 AM
Excellent! Perfect DOF/focus. Able to make out all the little lines. Using the reflection...cool!! One little spot on the right, but superb

Very nice! Love the contrast and sharpness of the whole image. Has a nice POP value to it. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, this is nice. I like that dark shadow as a second feather against the gray reflective surface. If onlty it (reflective) could have been maybe lighter? (9.4)
