As a newcomer to dpchallenge I had not seen the "similar" photo in the transparency challenge until now. (I submitted before thinking to review the archives.) I'm referring, of course, to myqyl's "Inner Focus." For the record, my photo was taken with no prior knowledge of myqyl or his work. It is a completely independant study with a different goal. Here, strong backlighting was used to help display the gems natural textures in a way no other form of lighting could achieve on its own. The transparency just comes with the territory. Still, I expect a lot of gigs. It was just too diffcult a shot to capture only to remove it for fear of reproach.

Nominally meets the challenge, but the attraction of the image is transparency and color, not texture. 4 sjgleah

This photograph has nice color, but texture doesn't seem to be a primary element. Technically, the focus is sharp and the exposure is correct. This picture does not do anything for me artistically though. However, this would have made a great entry for the "Transparency" challenge. *4* -balynch

Nicely captured, but I find that the background behind the gemstones is a little distracting.

Total Score7

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!

transparency, ok - texture ?? if you were going for the inside structures of the stones, I'd say you should have reduced the number of gems in the shot. 4 beegee
