this is really nice texture... I will comment on the lighting... I think there is no real problem with the lighting on this image, but it simply does not grab my attention.. It works well, but... hmm.. i don't really know what to say about it :) This is a good shot... :) = 7 - jmsetzler

Looks even odder up close, doesn't it?

Shadows seem a bit too deep

Technical Aspects8
Meets Challenge6
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!

Too dark.

The best of the pineapple shots so far.
07/24/2002 01:14:00 AM
Nice picture, but over sharpened.
07/23/2002 09:46:00 PM
You didn't quite get your lighting right - it is too dark on the right side.
07/23/2002 09:22:00 PM
wild. looks like cake.

One of the better macro shots. I like the lighting and this thing is ready to eat. Nice and ripe. 8

A nice close up.

If it had been possible, I think it would have been cool to focus on just one of the round thingys - like what is in the lower left. Good capture on the texture and detail, but it is just a little dark on the right for my personal taste. Still, a nice picture. karmat

Nice macro. I would not have known what it was without the title. Nice colors and lighting.
07/22/2002 07:09:00 PM
Really really nice!!
07/22/2002 06:28:00 PM
love the lighting
07/22/2002 03:32:00 PM
great composition and color contrast
07/22/2002 12:17:00 PM
A nice organic mystery here. Would have liked to see a bit more definition in the dark areas on the right.
07/22/2002 03:38:00 AM
Very nice! Warm.

great idea for a texture, and I like the shapes and shadows. the one thing that bugs me is the reflections (at least, that's what they look like. could be powdered sugar or something, for all I know). to get rid of that, you could try drying off the fruit better, or perhaps using a polarizing filter (though I've never heard of using one on fresh fruit, it just might work).

A little dark... a little overexposed... ¿? there's something I dont like....
07/22/2002 01:38:00 AM
ermm. which part of a pineapple is this? I have never seen such a pineapple before.. photographic-wise, a tad underexposed perhaps.
