thanks for all of the comments - i really appreciate them. i was extremely happy with my score and placement in this challenge.

to respond to a few thoughts:

- i did take shots using perspective and trying to capture the painting at different angles, but i didn't like how it looked. my camera wasn't able to capture a good, crisp image at an angle. i used this shot because i liked the level of detail that was captured from the canvas.

- would have liked to have used two colors, yeah. but i had to work with what i had. i took pictures of a lot of my recent paintings and this was the one that i really fell in love with because of the big gloop of paint in the middle. other shots that i took of the other paintings jusdt didn't have the same feel or detail.

but thanks again for all of the comments. i do appreciate them!

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge7
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!

Great! it's funny how a lot of people assume paint canvas is smooth.. this ought to show them!!

I liked this lots. I can feel the texture of the canvas and slickness of the acrylic through the visual representation.

Nice choice of subject and great color.

Texture is good, but I feel that the photo doesn't have any"life".

This is what creativity looks like when you make it hold still long enough for a photo to be made. 10 - crisa58

Good contrast between smooth and rough. Composition is effective too.
