yay! new crayons...what it's like to be a kid again ;)
Don't like those oddly colored shadows though....

Sharp focus on all the crayons would have created a dynamite image.....
08/15/2002 08:22:00 PM
Love the colors

The color punch here is very nice! This is an excellent idea... great shot! - jmsetzler

Memories of childhood... what fun to color with a brand new box of crayons... sharp and unblemished by the other crayons! I like the reflection of the colors on the white background. I might have cropped differently, to include more of the box, and less white.

brilliant colors - but the top flap of the box?
08/14/2002 09:30:00 PM
any newer and they'd still be in the box!

Good composition and nicely saturated colors but maybe a little too saturated for some tastes.
Score: 7

Good focus and I like the colors. They are very vivid. I don't like the shadow under the crayons - it looks too blue.

Great concept! Who can forget the feeling of a fresh box of crayons! 9 Kaz

nice bright colours, and they defintely have that "new" look around them. i seem to do bad in challenges cos of lack of a solid colour background, but you have done nicely.

This is a very interesting shot.. I'd put this on my wall. Why? Because the names of the crayons. Not only do you have very bright, wonderful colors.. but the fact that all the crayons are named simple names except for the tangerine one.. its "vivid tangerine"-- it draws you to it, it stands out. I like this photo a lot. New crayons are always fun to take pics of. Good job! 10

good colour

Great thought to capture 'newness' - who of us doesn't remember the specialiness of that crisp, new box of crayons. I can smell the wax!
08/12/2002 11:31:00 PM
good choice of background, composition

bursting out, and bursting with colour. Like it
08/12/2002 07:28:00 PM
i like this..very colorful, i think i would have shown the box a little more.
08/12/2002 06:23:00 PM
not the same old colors from when I was a kid ! nice picture
08/12/2002 05:31:00 PM
I am a sucker for colour. Want to see more of the box though... a good deal more. To balance the layout. And I want to push the orange crayon back into the box a tiny bit! LOL!

I liked it!
08/12/2002 05:09:00 PM
lighting seems a bit harsh. nice colors though
08/12/2002 04:48:00 PM
Well this definitely has some nice colors. Good idea for the challenge. I think the box, the way it is positioned right now, kind of detracts form the photo. 7 md

nice vivid colors and definitely strong on topic. the blue cast to the shadow is a bit odd but it's a great picture nonetheless. 8 Lisa

Yea, new crayons!! Love the bright colors! karmat
08/12/2002 02:50:00 PM
Man it's been a loooooooong time since I've bought a new box of crayons....I've never heard of "cerulean"........
Beautiful, crisp colors......
08/12/2002 01:48:00 PM
A nice 'leap-out-at-you' composition!
08/12/2002 01:30:00 PM
Fantasic color! Sharp image! My only question is the blue shadow? 9 Swash
08/12/2002 12:05:00 PM
like the sharpness and composition but the theme seems to be very popular...
08/12/2002 09:09:00 AM
nice shot. Very vivid colors!
08/12/2002 08:32:00 AM
Nice vivid and sharp colors. Good composition.
08/12/2002 04:17:00 AM
Blue light kills the catchlight.. esp. on the reds
08/12/2002 03:44:00 AM
Should have splurged and got the Crayolas.
08/12/2002 01:24:00 AM
I did the other crayon picture, and I want to say you have a really SWEET idea. :) Yours turned out clearer than mine. Congrats and good luck!! Great minds think alike. (10)
