I made an origami bird out of orange paper which I placed on some blue and orange paper. I used side lighting to create shadows. I shot in RAW, so I could fine tune contrast and saturation. I put a thin black border around the image to frame it.

A great idea, If the orange sheet wasn't there you could pretend it was floating on a paper pond!

I like the subject, I like the lighting, I like the colors, I don't like the focus.

Love it - would have been even better if it were just the orange origami bird on the blue paper. 8.

Excellant use of color, and composition, I really like this photo and from the photos that I have looked at for this challenge, I believe this is gonna be one of the best.
i also like the way you used the light, the balance is just subpurb.

I like the hues of the blue and oranges as well as the arrangement of objects. The only thing that is really detracting from an overall appealling image is those deep shadows on the oragami crane and upper left hand corner. Perhaps a light source directed from below the crane as well as camera flash would significantly eliminate those deep shadows.

I was thinking of doing this same thing ... in the same colours, but I got too lazy to figure out how to fold the bird. So, I really like the idea and the colours. I think I would have done the lighting a little different to reduce the shadow a bit. Nice composition.
