Nice choice of subject! The sepia color works well for this one.

Nice composition. Works well in sepia. Good focus and depth of field. About the only suggestion I might make is that I would have liked it if it had a little more contrast and drama to it. Very nicely done however.

very delicate and detailed subject..Like the light sepia treatment to enhance the contrast....9 ...hokie

the harsh lighting in the upper portion of the photo is very distracting to me. the subject is nice, but the composition (from straight above with the eggs almost dead center) doesn't work well. perhaps a view from the side, as if you were peering into the nest from below, would work better. ~mcmurma

Wonderful shot! I love it! The only complaint I have is the light coming from the top is a bit distracting. It would be improved by having it cast a more noticeable light on the eggs

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge5
Total Score7

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!

This picture would be better if it had a completly white backround. It blends in too much with the brown backround.

I love the contrast of textures here. Nice coloring too!

i like the way the nest and the item its sitting on match colors.

Very nice photo, I like the different types of texture and the lighting. My favorite thing about it is that it is not just a bunch of textures thrown together - they look like they belong together.

Nice mix of textures and I like the tones used. Good job.
07/22/2002 10:29:00 AM
textures all over the place in this picture!
07/22/2002 09:05:00 AM
Could use a bit more contrast--just a touch.
07/22/2002 06:52:00 AM
maybe amongst the twigs or grass would enahnce the effect

This is nice and really shows texture. I just find the top a bit hot. Nice work. Kee
