Really terrific work! 10 from me. This is a 'hang-up' photo. Pretty much like everything about it.

This shot is growing on me. Technically, I think this is fine work. Good focus, nice framing and has multiple textures well displayed. It is a bit "plain", but does have interest. Still, score unchanged, started 7.....Swash

Your photo is very interesting, but there seems to be too much contrast. It makes it hard to pick out the subtlies of color and texture that must be there.

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge9
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!

these can have a nice texture but it takes a sharp focus to bring it out. let me know after the contest, ill show you another picture ..

An interesting photo from a very ordinary object... Brown is usually kind of a dull color to me, but you've managed to make it look rich and warm. Nicely done.

texture, texture, texture. simple and yet, so textured
07/22/2002 09:33:00 PM
My only suggestion would be to frame it so that the subject is lower in the picture,a nd the space is above it. to me, it feels crowded. karmat

I like this shot - good composition. The only fault I see is that the left is cropped too tight for my liking. Over all this is good texture. Kee

Base of the stem is too near the frame edge. It leads the eye out of the picture.
