Wow. A personal best in the ranking for me. 10th place, and page 1!
Thanks everyone.

I must say this was the least favorite of mine I have entered to date. I didn't have an entry and just threw some candy on a peice of white board and used the macro setting. Really didn't expect it to do anything.

Just goes to show you, sometimes you just get lucky with an entry you don't put much effort into, or even like.

Weird!

This is very sharp and bright, has teriffic movement and makes my mouth water. I do believe
it is the only shot of candyl...or is it ribbon?

Nice abstract, looks like you had tough time with the focus. How about 8

This is so awesome. . . it stirs so many memories of my childhood where that was a staple every Christmas.

Classic use of contrasting colors. Good job. (7)

I love this idea and the focus, clarity and colors are great. The composition would be improved, imho, if the candy was edge to edge. The left hand side has too much white space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2005 08:58:43 AM
Compositionally, this might be improved (maybe a smaller aperture to bring more of the red ribbon into focus). However, the bright colors and subject are great.
12/14/2005 08:00:00 PM
Wow, nice! Simple yet very well know subject. Really speaks volumns. Love the curves and colors.

Wow I love the color and contrast. Defiantly says Merry Christmas.

Nice idea and composition. Focus could be sharper.

Very nice. It manages to be abstract yet immediately evocative of the holidays.
