Perfection in everyway Ursula.....
A stunning image, which the results show are what one deserves.....
You have an amazing talant, and are so very gifted, especially in the processing that you do.
It is always just so spot on, and never overdone.

This is so amazing! Thank you so much for telling us exactly how you got that beautiful effect. This looks like a wall hanging in one of those clean white modern kitchens!

Congratulations on such a great finish!

Brilliant in its simplicity and crop. The pink adds greatly to the composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Common subject ('round these parts) but uncommonly well done in this case. Nicely presented study of shape, color, and light.

This is a nice classic shot. Very well done. So well done in fact that I can't find a thing to "critique"! :D Congrats. I'd wish you luck in the challenge, but somehow I don't think you're going to need it.

My very favorite of the challenge. I really wanted to do something like this but just couldn't pull it off. Glass is so hard to photograph when it comes to reflections. You did a fantastic job. 10 from me. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/27/2006 03:11:50 PM
I love the study in light in this image! The reflections, forms and tones are just appealing to me. Nothing "new" here...but it is so clean and sweet I can't help but like it.
