The tomatos are very clear. Need more clarity on the can. Great colors.
05/02/2006 05:19:41 PM
Too out of focus...

good idea, some problems with focus.

the colors are certainly complimentary but better focus on your subject is needed.

This almosts works except it's not cropped nearly tight enough and is out of focus.

Composition needs work. Didn't care for the straight line dividing the colors. Also focus was way too soft.

better focus on the beer would have been a great improvement

I like the concept but the line between the colors make the photograph seem tilted.

WOW needs ALOT OF FOCUS
04/29/2006 09:19:44 PM
Good idea but out of focus. Also the line between red and green is not straight.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 02:38:45 PM

04/29/2006 01:41:47 PM
The image is not in focus :(

The beer can focus appears to be a little soft. I like the original idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 09:24:21 AM
the can is a bit out of focus and the dividing line could be completely vertical
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 02:14:43 AM
This could be better if it was in focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 01:35:49 AM
definite focus problems...just doesn't work
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There is nothing wrong with your concept. It is a good idea. The technical execution of this image is its main fault. It lacks clarity and has some serious digital artifacting in the composition. Overall color and contrast are weak. You might consider shooting this from a different perspective, like from ground level or straight down from above with the red-green boundary absolutely horizotal or vertical in the frame. This is kind of a "snapshot" perspective.

I'm guessing you are not very experienced with image post processing. I don't know what editor you are using but you will want to learn as much as possible about it and use it to bring out the best in your pictures.

focal issues hurt this ... it is oddly interesting though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 04:31:18 PM
A bit blurry - sure complementary colours, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 10:56:41 AM
"CHEESY"
04/27/2006 10:22:05 AM
Nice idea, but the lack of focus is very distracting>
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 04:34:34 AM

1 - Meets the Challenge mostly color-wise, but the concept, subjects and focus/quality, not holding my attention.

The Grolsch... is a little blurry, but a good plan. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Out of focus, center line is leaning, you can see the seams of the cardboard and object don't really relate to each other which does not help to show contrast to the viewer.

Nice idea and good colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 11:38:01 AM
would like to see the can in better focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 09:02:21 AM
DOF seems a little off and the reflections in the can are a little distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 06:48:32 AM
an out of focus photo of two unrelated things is what I see...sorry, this is poor
