These crystals have some interesting texture to them. The range of colors is nice too. This looks like it may have been a bit overprocessed in the photo editing software. Or, it may just be a result of the harsh direct flash lighting. In the future, when taking pictures of close-up objects, you may try using the exposure compensation feature of your camera if it has one. This shot would have been nicer with maybe a -1 EV exposure compensation. *5* -balynch

A very artistic interpretation of the texture challenge.

good choice of subject, nice lighting, color, framing.

Very interesting. I think if you had focused on the top "growth" it would have been even more interesting. karmat

needs better focus

Quite a crystalline collection!

beautiful! I had thought they were fireworks explosions initially; these is a good submission for the texture challenge

I think a bit of side lighting could have shown the texture better.

Technical Aspects8
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!

A little more light would work

Clean out the fridge more often. I cant tell what we are looking is the only thing I dont like about this. I do like the colors and textures.

good composition and variety of colors and texture

Good original idea. The backlighting really works well for this chunk of rock. It's beautiful. You know, you could put a picture frame on this and it would look like a photo of an absract painting.

lots of noise, but interesting shot. looks like fireworks
07/22/2002 06:58:00 PM
