Clever idea. Nice lighting as well.

Unique. I'd like to see more details on the tool and less overbright area of the cheese.

Great idea. Congrats.

So THAT's where swiss comes from! Excellent idea and execution. ONe complaint is the overexposed bit of cheese to the right of the drill.
12/16/2005 09:09:30 PM
So that's how they make swiss cheese :)

Lighting needs some work. Too direct on the cheese and clamp, while the drill press could use some more to bring out a little more detail.

Nice touch of humour. Perhaps just a touch too much light/glare on top of cheese??
I also like the way the handles are breaking out of darkness at top of photo.

Good job with the lighting here.
12/15/2005 08:07:34 PM
So THAT's how they do it?! Funny pic, very creative. Good lighting.

This is just too funny - LOL. Thank you for clearing up the mystery of swiss cheese holes.

nice lighting, i gave it a 7

beautiful composition, the drilling machine which occupies half of the image and which contrasts very well with the yellow, damage that there is this small blow of light on cheese

Great creativity! I like the way you highlighted the cheese as the focal point of the shot. Actually, maybe a bit too bright to the right but not bad.
12/14/2005 11:56:22 AM
LOL Love it!!! Great idea, great lighting ... super! The only thing I'd like to see different is the rather blown out area of the cheese.
12/14/2005 11:42:07 AM
Darn! Made me laugh. Good idea, but lighting is a real problem here as the subject, the cheese, has major overexposure. If it were a little more even, so as to still keep the background dark but more even exposure on the cheese, this would have been a winner for me.

Very clever, making your own holy cheese.........
12/14/2005 05:25:51 AM
Clever idea - nice lighting overall but spoiled by the blown out part of the cheese near the clamp.
12/14/2005 03:21:27 AM
Oh, what a great idea! Well thought out and captured.
12/14/2005 12:25:11 AM
SO thats how they do it!
