too dark really, though I think I understand why..

On my monitor this is a little dark. I like the subject matter, but the texture isn't featured really.

too gray; texture is lost

The file size of this photo is only 27K! The rules allow for up to 150K. You have lost a lot of detail and sharpness due to the JPEG compression artifacts. In my opinion, I don't think texture is a primary element of this photograph. I hope my comments have provided some useful information, and keep trying! *3* -balynch

I hope your "model" agreed to this, 'cause s/he doesn't look too happy! I think it needs more light to really show the textures well. karmat

too dark

I wish the quilt were better-lit.

Your image lots of its intrigue with the combination of black & white and such a dark image. I'm a sucker for bright, vivid pictures... I can't help but imagine this one with very bright sheets and light streaking across part of the image, though I'm probably missing the point of the shot. A boy can dream...

This could be an interesting picture, but it's way too dark.
07/24/2002 08:45:00 PM
This is far too dark to really show texture.
07/24/2002 05:01:00 PM
I don't get it
07/24/2002 01:10:00 PM
This picture could be improved if it was lighter. Because of the darkness, it is hard to focus on. (4) AquaGoddess12880

I love the feeling of a warm bed on a cold winter morning also, but for me to find texture in this image is a strech.

the eye creeps me out. The overall photo doesn't have sufficient contrast for me to feel a desire to return to the warm bed "advertised" in the title or shown in the photograph.

This is way too dark. There is so much texture potential in this, Bright color might have helped to bring it out.

Soo dark and gloomy, especially in B&W, seems awkward with the title. When I think of warm, I think of colors like red and yellow. I started by grading this shot as a 5, the I don't understand vote for me. I don't see much sense of texture. If you would be so kind as to send me a note after the challenge week, I would like to understand this photo better. (see my profile for e-mail info) 3 Swash

Too dark and grey. Boost the levels and contrast- better lighting when shooting to begin with would help in this as well.
07/23/2002 04:15:00 AM
very underexposed? I can't see anything..
07/22/2002 08:04:00 PM
I really like the composition, the subject, and the concept. I very much like the creativity in the shot. However, I had to search around to find the subject because of the lack of contrast.
07/22/2002 04:16:00 PM
i see texture, bu there is texture in everything... I would have liked to see a stronger interpretation... = 4 - jmsetzler

i would almost consider this one patterns more than texture, but i can see your pow and i can go with it. however, the shot is very much gray on gray, some more contrast would've helped this a lot, i think. -- gr8photos (2)

nice composition but too dark
07/22/2002 01:04:00 PM
looks too dark to me and the black and white doesn't exactly make this look warm. I also miss the texture in this. 3 beegee

Very dark and hard to make out anything other than what is right in the foreground.
07/22/2002 06:21:00 AM
Far too dark and indistinct
