Love it!

Good focus, but overall not that appealing (no pun intended) - to me. I think it may need more contrast - seems a little dull.

Very sharp and clear. Good comparison of 2 textures.

Nice, except for the distracting background top left. Perhaps you could have changed your angle slightly to avoid it.

great show of texture.

Good find on this subject! Good compositoin though I think just a tad tight. Nice crisp focus and lighting that complements the subject. My only minor nitpick would be to get rid of the background distraction in the upper left (or minimize it with background blur or such a high f/stop and shutter speed that it becomes near black).

The more I look at this shot.. I'm captivated by it. Probably because I love unicorns and I collected them as a little girl and it just brings back those memories. At any rate.. I like this. Good texture, I think I'd like to see the color version though.

i love the name. the image is ... deep, while itsnot. 9 because the white bush above the head shouldn't be there.

This is beautiful and it works phenomenally well as a black and white... The exposure on this image is right on the money... I would bump the score on this photo by one point if you had held up a black cloth or something dark behind this unicorn to completely wash out the background. The dark background works well, but the single light colored flower bloom is a minor distraction in the overall great impact of this photo... good work :) = 9 - jmsetzler

I like this texture photo very much and I am sure that what makes it so special is the use of Black and White.

very appealing and intersting shot
07/23/2002 02:31:00 AM
Excellent shot! Good example of texture with creativity in choosing the subject.

Needs more detailment

Well framed, though I think it may have been more interesting (to me) from a different angle. I feels kinda "straight on" and thus seems a little flat. Nice example for texture. karmat

Very well done texture piece.

A bit under exposed. When you photograph light subjects you have to fool the auto metering system into taking a darker picture. Meter on a darker part(try to find something medium grey)and press the shutter button down halfway to set the exposure.Then move to frame the subject and press down all the way.Or if you have over and under exposure buttons on the camera experiment with them.

good texture; nice cropping and contrast with background

Nice work. Kee

poor thing... nice effect for texture. would like to see the original and how it changes the image, if you shot this in color. 6 beegee

I like this photo a great deal; find the flower (I think it's a flower) in the top background to be just a tiny bit distracting.

interesting. almost morbid. like a dream dissolving.
07/22/2002 03:16:00 AM
like the chip paint on the horse

07/22/2002 02:26:00 AM
Nice variations of texture and good composition.

GREAT textures. DOF is nice. the only thing I would have done is brighten it some with levels.
