Beautiful lighting and color...Would have liked it a bit more in the budding state so it fits the challenge better but I can see where you're going with this.

nice glow...

I wouldn't have known without the title.......The reddish hue over the entire photo is attractive.

Color seems unnatural.

The leaves look more red than green, did you turn up the red (maybe a touch or twoooo, tooo much? or maybe an enhansing filter?) The shot is very clear and the angle of the hydrangia is interesting, but I just can't get over the red saturation. What color was the plate (besides the trim)? 7 Swash

Great picture, but I find the colour cast a bit heavy on the eyes…
08/15/2002 11:20:00 AM
very nice composition. the coloring looks a little too saturated to me. nice job overall though.

I would have used a title something like "Freshly picked" rather than use the word NEW in the title. Overall, a good picture, interesting to use an ordinary dinner plate for background. It seems a little shadowy on the right, but it's still nice and clear even in the dark parts, and balance is good.

The color cast works pretty well for this image to set the mood it could possibly be a little lighter though. The dominant shadows on the right and the somewhat shallow depth of field also help the photos mood. Good job.
Score: 6

Outstanding. Cannot fault it.

...and aparrently about to be eaten. Why is it on a plate? :) Seriously, though - focus and depth of field are excellent. The lighting and colour are also great as is the framing.

I'm not usually very impressed with photos of flowers, however it's the color that draws me to this one. It's a LITTLE dark on the right side, but I think that was probably not avoidable due to the lighting. If it were possible to lighten it up a bit, you could try that but ONLY if it didn't take away from the beautiful color. I think the color is more important. Very nice! Congrats and good luck in the challenge.

in my opinion the flower end might have been a little better angle, nice picture
08/13/2002 01:47:00 PM
Tooo red for me.

Can't decide if I like the orange hue or not. Either way, it's a very good picture.
08/13/2002 01:06:00 PM
excellent use of colors.
08/13/2002 06:41:00 AM
Very nice lighting, composition and DOF.
08/13/2002 12:24:00 AM
I love the warmthness of the colors, the lighting is so soft and yet it doesn't lack contrast, very nice!

I like the feel of this pic but don't like the yellowish tone. I think a more specific focus would stop my eyes from "jumping around".
Sorry ... I don't mean to be harsh ... it's just my 2 cents. :-)
08/12/2002 09:44:00 PM
colour balance seems a bit out, very warm/ orangy
08/12/2002 05:46:00 PM
I love the lighting effect..you must share how you did that! :-) Did you use a filter or a colored light? Good job - 8
08/12/2002 01:12:00 PM
warm and colorful. a bit yellow though...
08/12/2002 12:20:00 PM
Great color!!! Nice composition.
08/12/2002 11:36:00 AM
I think it's too red.
08/12/2002 09:12:00 AM

08/12/2002 03:47:00 AM
