lovely colors! Depth of Field could use some improvement.

Great colors and texture. If more than 20 percent of this shot was in focus, you'd have a good chance of a winner. (attempting a lighter, funner way of saying you need a wider depth of field, while stating the idea was GREAT!) 6 Swash

Not enough depth of field. I like the bright colouring though.

This photo does show texture. However, the focus is blurry, and it is pretty much a wallpaper shot - fills the entire field with the item. A picture of fabric doesn't capture my interest. It is colorful, but I don't think that this much color over the entire field works for me. I'm also looking for a bit more creativity.

this photo would look so much nicer to me if the main swatch of fabric on the left were in focus, and not the one on the left. the colors are vibrant and the texture is appealing. ~mcmurma

Beautiful colors, nice texture, but it's not sharp enough.

Total Score8

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!

Very colorful.

the color and contrast in this photo is nice... the depth of field is not allowing the left half of the image to be in focus. = 6 - jmsetzler

Great colors and texture. A little out of focus in the bottom left
07/23/2002 10:58:00 AM
The majority of the shot is out of focus. I do like the part that is in focus.
07/23/2002 12:59:00 AM
good composition
07/22/2002 10:36:00 PM
most of center is out of focus. good concept with these colors too
07/22/2002 09:36:00 PM
Nice colors. The blur in the front forces your eye to the upper right (as do the colors and lines) where it is more focused. If it were turned upside down, the blur would be at the top, and I think it would feel a little more natural. karmat

Half the pix is in focus and the other is smeared,attention to depth of field is very important.
07/22/2002 06:51:00 PM
colorful. left is a bit fuzzy
07/22/2002 06:27:00 PM
good composition, feels slightly unbalanced because of variation in sharpness
07/22/2002 06:20:00 PM
DOF is a bit soft for this type of image, you may have wanted to pull away from the foreground just a bit. The colors in the picture are wonderful
07/22/2002 05:22:00 PM
Very colorfull, I like the striking contrasts between color and black. The area of the image, lower left, where my gaze is being drawn should IMO be the area in sharp focus.
07/22/2002 01:34:00 PM
too much black or is it color
07/22/2002 12:29:00 PM
focus is difficult to determine
07/22/2002 10:36:00 AM
Love the colors here. Focus is a bit soft. Kee

Shame the majority of the image is out of focus - the top right secion is really nice.
07/22/2002 09:01:00 AM
Good texture, great color, nice composition.
07/22/2002 06:49:00 AM
not very edible
07/22/2002 01:42:00 AM
horrible focus
07/22/2002 01:39:00 AM
Nice... maybe a little unfocused... VIVA MEXICO!!!
