Nice lighting. Good sharp detail.

great details. how did u get so much contrast?

very nice detail in your texture... I would love to see this rope spitting the frame diagonally rather than horizontally... good work :) = 7 - jmsetzler

Awesome shot, everything about it is perfect (sorry, I can't give any constructive criticism).

Good texture. That's a 5. My overall impression is only a 2. 7 nards656

Good lighting and detail

Very interesting shot. I can't decide if the white is over exposure or a coating like dust or salt on the line.

Technical Aspects9
Meets Challenge8
Total Score9

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!

Wonderful texture and reasonably well lit. I get a sense that the rope (I think that's what that is..) has been worn and is frayed. Great! 8 BigSmiles

must be frustrating to be one among so many rope shots. I like yours though, very crisp display of texture. 7 beegee

Of all the representations of rope, this is the best. The textures of the fibers is well shown. I know just what it would feel like to run my hand over the rope.

This is great I can almost feel the rope in my hands, lets smoke it :)
07/23/2002 09:46:00 AM
A great sharp close up.
07/23/2002 09:14:00 AM
I like the perspective and the composition of this photo.
07/23/2002 03:24:00 AM
great texture. I like the lines that the twisting rope creates, and I like the depth that the blurred background gives the image.
07/23/2002 12:57:00 AM
great symmetry, I love the light angle!
07/23/2002 12:38:00 AM
nice light - good focus - it hurts just thinking about the texture of this rope running through my hands
07/22/2002 11:39:00 PM
Very good focus and lighting. Did you try different angles. I think a lower left to upper right composition might have been neat. Just a personal thing, though. karmat
