I like what you were going for here, a nice simple still life. I think it could have been done a little more effectively though. I do not like the way the books pages are turned towards us because you can't see any deatail in them, this causes just a white corner. The strobe you used seems a little harsh on the apple, and I don't care for the way the light dies off on half the apple... just some suggestions.

Great composition. The apple on is a bit dark . If you were able to desaturate everything but the red of the apple , the piece would be more powerful. The framing works with this photo.

nice composition. it's a little too dark on the left anf there is a distracting hot spot on the apple, but overall it looks nice.

One of my favorites of the challenge. I love the colors and high contrast. Nice composition, too, with the book, the apple and the blackboard. Nothing about this that doesn't say "school". 10

One of my favorites in a very competitive challenge! I think this is technically excellent - great composition, lighting, tone, color, focus and border selection. I hope someday I can take a shot like this. I really like the way the colors complement each other but somehow remain subtle. Great job - very high score:)

I would like this picture better with a little more light.
09/01/2003 02:47:08 PM
I like this - especially with the double-meaning of the title. Basic math, but also basic (classic) images of school. Lovely composition, good rich colors - this is a great image to convey a sense of school and back-to-school.

The numbers seem a little blurred -- otherwise it's great!

Good tones and lighting, composition is well done too, technically a great shot i think, little lacking in 'WOW" but would be hard to wow with this challenge topic.

Nice framing and composition! Good deep red color in the apple.

Without the shiny spot on the apple and the dog eared page in the book this would have been a perfect 10. Great photo anyway.

Classic shot. I would have liked to see a little more light on the left side just my opinion. As it is, very good. 9

I like this shot. Nice use of borders - in this case I think it adds a lot to the photo.
