Very nice photo. I don't think this particular photo lends itself to triptychization though. Doesn't make me want to stop looking at it though - technicals and aesthetics of the photo are perfect.

This was one of my favorites. I was surprised it didn't place higher. Your work is beautiful and this is no exception.

I love this one. It seems magical. Neat lighiting and mood. One of my top favorites.

Returning for comments and a bump to (10) Perhaps my favorite of the challenge.
The more I look at this, the more I like it, and added it as a favorite.
Has a magical feel to and is very nicely laid out & divided.

Dax?
Pretty work!

Great try but there are just too many refelctions and not enough focus for my taste
  Photographer found comment helpful.

looks kinda like a Dax, which is a good thing!

I love the very shallow DOF and the image by itself. I'm not a big fan of the "separation choice". The image by itself would definitely be one of my favs, but as a triptych I don't think it works quite as well. I also think the extra wide white border is a bit overkill.

nice color

This is so pretty, the lustre on the shell is very tactile. I don't know if the breakup and border enhances this shot or not, I love it anyway

I like the picture, but the triptych isn't adding much. I like the picture a lot though. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 06:20:37 PM
interesting. I like the bokeh. the focus on the shell is a bit too shallow for my taste, but you manage to bring it off. the colours and their combination is good. best of luck.

I LOVE this photo. The colors, the depth of focus, everything. I'm not sure about it as a triptych, though. It doesn't ruin the photo but it doesn't really do anything to improve it, either. As a single shot, though, it's perfect.

i really like the use of three different sizes. and the bokeh is really nice. it makes the shot in my opinion.

i like the image, but i don't see what putting it into three sections did for the shot. 7

i love the colors and dreamy effects!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, you could shave with that dof, very impressive! Call me a newbie, but I don't think I've ever seen such pretty bokeh, and on BOTH sides of the focus plane, no less, sheesh!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2005 12:11:03 PM
How pretty. I love the soft blur and glow in this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I have come back to this photo several times during my voting. I'm not real fond of the focus here and I can't decided whether the division of this into three panels is a plus or a minus. I love the color and think that with a little more focus on the shell this would be an incredible shot (and possibly a good entry into the Free Study). 6

How does the division of your picture into three frames enhance the photo? How does this "tell...a story or illustrates a concept or object" better than the original image?
11/15/2005 03:03:43 AM
Wow! Really interesting triptych framing, but I LOVE it!! The colors and the DOF are BEAUTIFUL!! This is just an amazing photo....truly lovely.

This is a cool picture, but I'm not sure how the triptych adds to the overall image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like it. Very cool. Love the colors and crazy bokeh. Great way to divide the photo into 3 panels, too. Works for me! Great work! 9...

I love this! Colors are pleasing and the DOF really makes this composition spectacular.

This looks like a Dax entry. the blues and overall tonality of this image is very nice and pleasing to the eye. The thumbnail works well and immediately grabbed my attention. I was a bit disappointed when the shell wasn't in full focus. if it were, this would have ranked pretty high. The use of "odd" frame sizes works well and I'm glad that you did it this way so as not to divide the shell in pieces. 7

I just Love this image. It is so very chimerical.
As it goes, i probably would have prefered it as a whole image rather than a triptych, but your use of the 3 differing panels was definately the best approach i can see for dividing the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 12:38:37 PM
Beautiful! Very poetic. For this challenge it would habe been interesting to make the panels of the picture more original/dynamic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 10:15:11 AM
Really beautiful shot! I love the way you chose to divide the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 09:05:59 AM
I like this image as a "whole" more than a triptych...the dividing lines seem to be more a nuisance than anything else, I wish they were gone, but then this wouldn't be a triptych...anyway...love the colors and awesome bokeh!

This is just an incredibly beautiful image. 10 for the image. 6 for the triptych.

Lovely shot! Colors, lighting and focus are absolutly beautiful. I'm not sure how well it fits the 'triptych' theme, I think It would be perfect without the splits, but it might have worked a little better for me if the right side had been divided in half by a horizontal line rather than it is now by the vertical line.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 01:00:16 AM
so nothing's perfectly in focus, it seems to go against all my photo knowledge, yet i love it! i don't know why but it is VERY interesting! great shot!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 12:56:54 AM
This is beautiful. I love the blue and orange. I also love that the shell has that one focal point and the rest is blurred. The placement of the breaks in the triptych is a little awkward, but I'm not sure what would have been better.

OOOOOH! I love the DOF. Interesting division of thirds. Really striking and artful. I like it alot.
