not very imaginative, sorry. old cars or toys photographed without any context just don't do it for me

I like the set-up of this shot. The reflective quality is good however, I find the non-reflective portion to not be quite as clear as I'd like (personal opinion). Ddon't you find it difficult to keep your reflective surface clear of debris? I sure do. I think I have everything clean, take my photo, and then find spots I didn't realize were there......Good work! :>) =8 Syamjonimi

It's my feeling that you tried to fit too much into this picture.

I love the "jittery" reflections. The third car looks like it's angling up a bit, but you still get an 8 :-)

Nice models

Great portrait of some old dinkys--I like the reflection. andrewm

I liked the idea! but may be with less cars or more space between them would help. (6)

great reflections

Like! Lots!

Good composition, though I am uncomfortable at the incident angle

dinky cars are a great idea and they do look truly old. a couple of comments. about your implementation: since you lined up your cars, you need to level your photo (rotate it clock-wise) so the 'horizon' is straight. i would also consider cropping off the edges of the outer cars to give the impression that you have more cars in the line up. last but not least, i've been told that there are mirrors that don't give you this double-reflection (i submitted a shot using a mirror at one point) but haven't checked that out. that may be a hard item to get hold off but would be nice. or is this a table top? -- gr8photos (4)

nice work with the mirror... as for composition, did you try shooting this from a slightly higher angle? I think that could make a minor improvement... Also, I think a little extra breathing room on the left and right woudl be a nice enhancement :) - jmsetzler

Coo - classic toys! Nice idea to take them on the glass/mirror. They're slightly unevenly spaced, though and Im not sure there's enough light overall. Good atmospheric shot.

Cool, the reflection almost gives them the impression of moving, sort of. Nice pic. karmat

like the subject matter and mutted colors. cool reflection. would like to see a differnt angle. shot is a little to straight forward for me.
08/06/2002 06:17:00 AM
If you had loosened up on the framing, I would have liked it better.
08/05/2002 10:21:00 PM
Are these real cars, or toys? Very cool picture either way!
08/05/2002 09:25:00 PM
Nice old Dinkies. Good effect for the challenge. I would have liked it better if your cropping was equal on all sides and the objects level. In my opinion any way. Autool

Like the reflection.

Top - this is just fantastic. Not only is it a great idea, it's a well lit, well composed (or should that be decomposed :) ) picture that jumps out at you. Subject smacks of fun and I smiled when I saw it, meets the challenge without trying - TEN IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, but it'll have to do -- (10)

lighting is too even, or maybe its lack of contrast.
