I really like this. I almost added it to my favorites, but it's not QUITE there. It's a hair dark for me. The colors are terrific though. I would never have guessed algae. It looks like a garbage bad spread out an lit with colored lights. Still I like it a lot. Wasn't a member during this challenge, but I'd have given it an 8 I think. just-married

It doesn't really look like algae and I dont see any texture, but I like how looks. It's a tad out of focus on the bottom, but I don't mind it too much.
I give it 7

Meets texture requirement. Some blurring in this photo doesn't work. Wallpaper shot that isn't very interesting.

What kind of textile did you use to create this effect? it's pretty flashy!

good color. seems to be some lack of sharpness in the middle and left side

Great color and lighting on this. The depth of field is a little off, but otherwise really good shot.

This is an interesting material to be photographing for the Texture challenge, and I do not know what it is. On second look though I am bumping it up a notch.

Interesting composition. I like the colors and the exposure, but it doesn't seem as sharp as it should be to me.

I really love the colors you got, and I'm curious about how you did this photo. I'm guessing that's a sheet of black plastic with colored light bounced onto it? I can't wait to read the info for this shot. Very interesting.

i like the colors (green being my fav, and blue a close 2nd) and the idea is good, too. the left side of the shot seems a little OOF, did you have your camera set to a shallow DOF (if you can control the setting that is)? and maybe not quite level so that the left side was further away? that is a little distracting to me, also, the left side seems a little darker, maybe add some more even lighting if that's possible. -- gr8photos (4)
