I like the "fluidity" of this shot, and the different colors that show up. except for the red dots in the left, but my camera does that too on occasion, so no problem for me.karmat

Great Effect...
07/28/2002 08:38:00 AM
I'm so curious about what this is! It's very nice with smooth texture very obvious to meet the challenge. Good job!

07/27/2002 05:25:00 AM
Very touchable.
07/26/2002 05:26:00 PM
Good contrasts in colours and textures
07/26/2002 04:58:00 PM
Very creative, and graphically attractive. There's a weird browish/yellow hue/tinge along the curves and edges of the cream colored swirls. Over contrast/sharpened? Anyway. I like it.

I love this pic. 10 nards656

wooooooooooooooooooooow amazing how you go a picture so beautiful out of something that's probably so common Im guessing its icing or something. maybe paint?! Great freakin job 9
07/26/2002 11:20:00 AM
This is very abstract, but I like it very much. That is unusual for me. I can't wait to find out what this is.
07/26/2002 06:28:00 AM
I really like this picture...
07/26/2002 01:34:00 AM
what is that????
07/25/2002 10:54:00 PM
fudge ripple? I have no idea what it is, but I like it. 7
07/25/2002 01:59:00 PM
wow 8
07/24/2002 03:21:00 PM
i like it alot - lighting, contrast, shapes. cool shot.
07/24/2002 03:00:00 PM
One of the most interesting subjects this week, technically excellent, well composed and great variety of texture, excellent color contrast....10..hokie

Technical Aspects8
Meets Challenge10
Total Score9

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

10. LOVE this!!
07/24/2002 01:21:00 PM
I don't know what it is, but it's really nice :) Excellent picture, excellent lighting, everything is perfect, except for those annoying little red reflects on the top left...
07/24/2002 12:27:00 PM
very good indeed, 9.
it would be 10 if those red spots at the top were not there, and if the contrast was ever so slightly lower. the white reflections on the black seem a little too bright.
07/23/2002 11:34:00 PM
phenomenal work... critiques: it looks like the red dots in the upper left corner may be a result of over post processing... I see some jagged edges on the curves in the top half of the photo that may be a result of over sharpening... that being said, this is also an example of a photo that I find imperfect that still scores a 10. the fluidity an smoothness of this image along with the nice lighting works very well for me..you have a great eye and mind to come up with this image for this challenge.. great work = 10 - jmsetzler

07/23/2002 09:32:00 PM
Awesome! The strong contrast is excellent.
07/23/2002 06:03:00 PM
the red reflections are a little distracting.
07/23/2002 01:43:00 PM
What a great visual, What kind of object is this
07/23/2002 01:16:00 PM
Great lighting and composition
07/23/2002 11:32:00 AM
Interesting. I'd like to know what this is. The curves seem almost too perfect for it to be liquids!
07/23/2002 09:39:00 AM
I like the shiny highlights. Very nice.
07/23/2002 09:36:00 AM
The lighting in this is really great..makes the shot
07/23/2002 02:36:00 AM
something about this is cool, i like the repetition, the sheen, the curves.

07/22/2002 10:27:00 PM
difficult to convey texture of smooth objects unless they're identifiable
07/22/2002 10:10:00 PM
i don't know what this is, but my stomach thinks it's chocolate! I really like this picture, the wet look of the black and the creamy look of the white. It just works.
07/22/2002 06:53:00 PM
don't like the bright light glare
07/22/2002 06:47:00 PM
whatever it is, I love it
07/22/2002 05:25:00 PM
Nice choice of texture and contrasting light and dark colors. *7* -balynch
07/22/2002 02:59:00 PM
I don't like the red highlights, it really looks like the color was manipulated too much. - 7
07/22/2002 02:21:00 PM
Interesting use of colors, contrast, reflections and lines. I really like this. Some highlights at top of picture are over-exposed. Was this intended?
07/22/2002 01:51:00 PM
sooo coooollll!!!
07/22/2002 12:46:00 PM
I.... LOVE.... THIS!
07/22/2002 12:08:00 PM
Love all the abstract shapes and the rhythm of the image.
07/22/2002 11:13:00 AM
The red really takes away from the picture. Could you have cropped it lower so you didn't have the cast of black on the white near the top?
07/22/2002 11:10:00 AM
edible? looks delicious
07/22/2002 10:09:00 AM
Such an awesome shot. It would be a perfect score except for the glares at the top. Reduce those and you've got a perfect image.
07/22/2002 01:49:00 AM
nice play of texture and colours.
07/22/2002 01:48:00 AM
I love this.. the shine.. its so smooth and.. just.. fun to look at! Hopefully you'll tell us what it is when the challenge is over. 7
07/22/2002 01:30:00 AM
WOW ! Awesome photo ! This looks familiar but can't place it. Now I'll keep wondering what it is lol
