Taken from the back tail gate of my pick up truck over a cloth with the four cones. I used the wide angle lens that I can use with the converter. I cropped rotated and of course increased Contrast. and adjusted levels. Cloned a couple of dots out and desaturated a bit.

This is the type of images I like, re a strong graphic abstract design appeal.....

Oooooo, look at the pretty colors! :)

Greetings from the Critique Club! I remember seeing this shot in the thumbnails, didn't get a chance to vote, but it did catch my eye in the quick review. I'm suprised this didn't score higher! The contrast is there without a doubt. I'm guessing the only problem I can really see with the shot is the lack of detail on the top two cones compared to the bottom two. The tops of the cones become blurred almost, you lose that circle that is so well defined in the lower cones. Also the lighting is a bit unbalance, there are more reflections on the top than the bottom, dealing with natural lighting can be so much fun sometimes, no? ;) Maybe if you could redo this with more balanced lighting to create equal reflections on all the cones.

Sorry I couldn't offer more suggestions but this is a very good shot and I would have given it an 8 or 9 if I had time to vote then. :)

But I love the optical illusion that it creates, you should consider setting this up for a print!

This is very high contrast, love the colors, but the subject matter is not that interesting to me.

This is really inventive and original. Great composition and color. Lighting (which really could have been a downfall here) is also quite good. Very nice work.

cool reflections and nice bold color. I wish more care had been taken in the placement of the cones...

Wow - you definitely found two contrasting colors. Maybe a bit too much red, but I like the graphic composition.

I have no idea why I like this so much, but apparently I do. I keep coming back to it. I wish they were lined up a little more perfectly so that the spacing was perfectly symetrical. ANyway, terrific shot!
