new layer, adjust levels to make image almost invisible for the black, change opacity to bring image back through, followed by a paint brush to bring details through on a masked layer

Simply wonderful. Technically flawless and filled with visual appeal. My hat is off.

Again... I am loving simplicity. Your colors are vivid and well contrasted... I also appreciated the thourough coating you gave inside the pots. I would be intereted in hearing what your background/dropcloth are made of. Congrats on a wonderful image.

Love the smoothness you've captured with the flowing paints. A very simple idea.. nicely done.

Nice & simple! One of my top picks this time around.

Wonderful. Love it.

Wonderful idea and execution. Love the bright vivid colors, great composition and use of space.
01/13/2006 12:04:24 AM
Great color saturation. I like the way you've chosen to compose this as well. Maybe a tighter shot or more crop would have helped emphasize the subject more? Just my humble opinion, nice shot nonetheless

Very nice colors
01/12/2006 06:19:22 AM

I think I've just found the winner. Very nice concept and great execution.

love the white highlight line along the edge of the paints adding depth and definition to the shape of the spill - great lighting
01/09/2006 02:27:12 PM
Very nice photo. Great color and subject matter.
01/09/2006 11:57:52 AM
Very well lit, and an excellent idea. These colors do burst visually against such a dark background even if the paint is just oozing. I might crop a bit more top and bottom.
01/09/2006 10:01:20 AM
Love the clarity and distinction.

At first I really liked this picture. Then I started to see some of the clear signs of photoshoping. Like the pot on the lefts uneven bottom. If though it would have been messy I think you would have been better once doing this for real.

Also I don't think that it's as strong with the pots framed in the center, move them off to the side and create better negtive space around them.
01/09/2006 04:24:08 AM
to dark background specially because this is spouse to be a picture
01/09/2006 02:33:13 AM

01/09/2006 02:01:49 AM
