nice shot, and nice shadows. might have benefited from a higher aperture, as the leaves look a little out of focus as they come closer to the lens. i'm also not sure i like how the right edge is cropped off of the leaves. overall, though, a nice shot.

Nice color and composition. I would have liked it better without the structure of the background being visible though. I tried several white backgrounds myself for shots like this and found that high-quality ultra-white inktjet-paper works very good.

Even though the challenge was "shadows" I would like to have seen a little better focus on the flower-But because of the rare nature of the purple cast within the shadow I still gave you a 10. Nice shot.

Nicely framed and lit. The purple flower/shadow are great.

One of my two favorites this week. How did you get the colored shadows so well? Nice work.

Nice shot..I'd like to see it though without the tip cut off on the right and at the top
06/21/2002 01:08:00 PM
Very pretty, the petals on the right have the tips chopped off though

Very nice colored shadows, really nice. The cloth background adds texture, interest and additional (smallll) shadows, very, very nice.

Colors in the shadow are outstanding. I don't do flowers myself but love most of the ones I have seen on this site.

Absolutely beautiful. The puple shadows are very impressive, and I love the way the photo is composed so that it's as though there's only one flower, but half is real, half is shadow. Another one for my 10s.

My favourite colour. Relaxable, isn't it?
06/19/2002 02:31:00 PM
Nice color cast to the shadows!
06/18/2002 11:58:00 PM
I love the purple shadow and the texture on the cloth.
06/18/2002 02:19:00 PM
Why do I like this flower? Shadows that are something other than dull grey, that's what it is! Would it have been possible to retain the texture of the cloth in the highlights?
06/18/2002 12:32:00 AM
Nice job. Composition and lighting are effective.
06/17/2002 08:31:00 PM
I love this flower and it casts a nice color to the the shadow. I do wish the background were a smooth solid though. I think that the pattern of the material detracts slightly from the elegance of the flower.

Flowers are not usually my favorite but this is beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope you tell us how you achieved the backlighting, frontlighting AND the purple shadow. This is really an interesting photo. Absolutely perfect!
06/17/2002 07:58:00 PM
Cool, I like the color of the shadow. Wouldn't have thought of this myself.
06/17/2002 06:49:00 PM
Very nicely done.
06/17/2002 06:31:00 PM
excellent photo, but it would be over the top of the flower was facing toward the camera instead of away.
06/17/2002 06:03:00 PM
Geez another flower pic. Can't we have one contest without a flower pic?
06/17/2002 05:30:00 PM
good atempt, would have liked full flower in and given 9 instead of 8
06/17/2002 04:36:00 PM
Very well done.
06/17/2002 03:23:00 PM
Nice idea, you focus and light could of been a bit better here.
06/17/2002 03:20:00 PM
Very pleasing and soft - image quality is good too.
06/17/2002 01:35:00 PM
nice one
06/17/2002 12:26:00 PM
7 for creativity.

06/17/2002 11:41:00 AM
Very pretty.

Great idea! I love it. Textures are great. I would have liked to see the center of the flower just a little bit. Maybe some lighting on the foreground would have helped shadow definition and gotten rid of the dark corner. Also wish the whole flower was in the picture.
06/17/2002 12:59:00 AM
Good use of color in a shadow shot.
06/17/2002 12:31:00 AM
Good idea, I'll have to remember about this...
