Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Straight from the Camera (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: san francisco, ca
Date: Jul 2, 2006
Aperture: f5.0
ISO: 500
Shutter: 1/250s
Galleries: Floral
Date Uploaded: Jul 2, 2006

Normally I shoot in the 'failthful' settings of camera, but for this challenge I had to define an user setting with high sharpness, contrast and saturation, the images looked way too saturated in the lcd, I played with different saturation settings and kept clicking, picked whichever worked best on my monitor.

thanks for all the comments and ribbon!

Wonderful shot and congrats on the ribbon...you swam against the tide by entering a flower after a HUGE flower challenge and voter 'flower voting fatigue' and you succeeded by landing on the winners podium!!! That's an outstanding feat and a fantastic score! so double honour and congratulations to you

I love the bright colors against the dark background but what makes it stand out is the "tail" off to the left. 10

beautiful bokeh, or whatever it's called.

Just beautiful work with perfect composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.

8 - Very nice. Good composition. A bit more texture discernible and the right side not 'cut', make this even better in my opinion. Very good 'straight from the camera' shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 06:47:43 PM

Back to comment... Pretty brave entering a flower in this challenge with a flower challenge going on! Awesome job, btw! I gave this a 10 in voting (the only flower I gave a 10 to in this challenge at that). The colors are vibrant and the reflection is perfect. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow. The burst of colour on this shot is wonderful.

Very nice colors. I really like the reflective yet see-through quality of the water. Good work!

This is my highest scoring flower shot in this challenge. The colors and sharpness are great. I voted quickly and came back to comment. I didnt take the time first time around to really look closely. But the ripples in the water add to this picture greatly. I expect this to do very well for you. 8.

07/03/2006 01:11:39 AM
Not voting right now, and I have only looked at like ten entries, but I can tell already this is a ribbon contender. Perfect all around. Wish mine looked like this straight out of the camera! Oh my, hope this was for the Straight and not flowers challenge!
