I'd love to know the details of this shot - lighting and set up...

very nice shot - background & border match very well - only critique would be the lighting reflections -- most interesting to me are the comments so far - this being the week of the "insects" challenge and the broohaha about the spider entries, of the comments you have so far there are 5 that correctly identify the interloper as a rat while 7 misidentify it as a mouse - says something about how we should consider our audience and their perceptive skills when we choose our subjects

I like the composition and for me, the plain charcoal background makes this picture. Only thing is I think it to be a bit overexposed.

Still Life Gone Right you mean - it would have been bloody boring otherwise! I like this one, it makes a pleasant change to some of the unfunny set-up shots.

Definitely as pro as they come. Ready for ad print. Great framing and border. Nice rat! He\'s a pro too!

Very professional looking composition. Well conceived and composed. The only improvement would be to give it a little more contrast to make the objects stand out a little more.

nicely rendered and the inquisitive nose and eye really work

Wow! Beautifully photograph. Very good focus. Composition is very interesting. This looks like postcard, greeting card, magazine cover quality.

Great idea!

My favorite so far... I'm sure you tried several takes before this one. I only wonder how this picture could look like with the mouse smelling the cheese, instead of the grapes. Also, I'm not sure if it's my monitor... but the scene seems a little bit rotated to the left (If you take a close look at the bottle of wine). Very good composition and color. I say 10.

Nice sharp image. Original idea. 10

Super sharp and very good clarity... Don't worry ... the mouse did'nt touch the cheese.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2003 08:08:29 PM
Too bad the mouse wasn't sniffing the cheese instead of the grapes but this is great! Nice colors but could be just a bit clearer as far as the bottle of wine is concerned. Great idea! 10 from me.

Picture quality is great. Very clear, set-up very nicely and cute (rat?)!

very very cute... 10.

super nice composition. The light was a little low to see the mouse, but the shot is working. Good focus, creative shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Funny shot, would love to see the mouse eating the food and maybe an angled / blurred crop to suggest the photographer rushing to save the shot. This one still looks too staged for an 'oops', but points for humour and effort.

Nice still life. Good lighting. Not totally an oops. Unless of course you forgot to cook the rat.

hahaha! looks like someone's enjoying himself.

I like this one. Conceptually, funny. Photographically, colours spot on, focus crisp, composition balanced, backing even. Nicely done.

This is a great still with a very nice complimentary border.

Great composition and what a surprise to see the rodent. Wonderful clarity. The border is nice too.

great shot!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 02:32:58 PM
I like the idea but it might have been more of an "oops" if you had nibbled some of the cheese away, exposed some grape stems and tipped over the wine glass. That rat's a lot cleaner than the ones I usually see in our city :]
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 01:44:29 PM
Good use of the mouse.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 10:49:38 AM
hmm, what's wrong? Points for the rat, the choice of wine and just a darn good shot. 10

Finally -- a great shot! I don't think I've given out more than a 7 so far... :( This one is awesome, though! Great set-up, super colors, and a wonderful concept. 10 all the way!
