I'm not sure what they are called (too lazy to run downstairs to get the name), but these are a handful of gummy-like sticks. They used to make them in little balls with a fruit in the middle, but children were choking on 'em.. anyway. I took about 8 of them out of their packages and put them into a dish (among other items, just a dish in this particular shot) and flopped them around until they were in a neato position. Then i took my little desk lamp and held the dish over it so light would shine through the gummy sticks. I stood near the sliding glass door for some natural light for the side. Then I snapped away! I'm finally figuring out settings on my camera!! Weee!

Cool idea. I was going to do Gummi Bears but ended up not submitting.

I liked but I think it'd be better with brighter colors.

One of my favorites...love the colors, the sliminess, the light. Great job! Would be a ten if the cropping didn't bug me a little. 9

Coloring is great.

pleasing to the eye, great lines in the setup, wonderful colors, especially interesting is the new shades created by the overlaps.

I think this one is being "hurt" by having a white background behind it. The colors look a little bit more flat than they really are. (Took it into PS to see if upping the saturation would help. As soon as I did, and saw it on a grey background, I realized it was fine.) Very fun abstract.

great, striking colours

I like this, pretty cool. good colors-- Just one thing-to me this is more 'translucent' than transparent-or semi-transparent - but there is a lot of debate going on in the forums- and it doesn't alter my vote either way. Great job and cool idea!
07/01/2002 01:02:00 PM
nice... : )

The arrangement of these gummi worms looks to me like impressionistic intestines. Nice use of light. I might have cropped the top either up or down, as the one worm cut off in the middle is a bit of a distraction - cropping down a bit would probably make a 640x427 pic, but the shape doesn't have much effect on this photograph.

What am I looking at? I can't imagine that these are gummy worms...they look more so like baloons filled with water. I think the lighting could've been better to produce more dramatic colors -- the pastels don't jump out at you.

I don't know what this is, but it looks cool. Great job!
