Challenge: Life II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Date: Dec 5, 2006
Aperture: f8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Still Life
Date Uploaded: Dec 5, 2006

Eggs are sitting on a home made light table. And also lit from the left. The areas on the bottom are supposed to be overexposed to give this shot some glow. I switched this shot in just a minute exactly before the challenge ended. Yes, I hate those dust spots too, with the angle as such it just picked up the dust over the entire depth of the plate. The version I pulled I like better composition wise, but it's so close. But, it has no dust but is a tad overexposed. Thought the overexposed areas where to be an even worse issue with the voters than the dust here, seeing this is a basic challenge, perhaps the voters would be somewhat forgiving :)

The pulled outtake:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/435780.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/435780.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Thanks to everyone for their comments :)

The pink hue comes for the Sat/Hue change for the Yellows. With the White Balance set and use of a warm light the eggs had a slight yellow cast which I then changed to pink. Admit I was a bit clumsy and lazy when shooting this one. I hollowed out the raw eggs before using them, even the one on the right. With the top off, broke 3 of them when trying to stand them up.

I'm not averaging more then 2 challenges a month these past few months. Just been too busy with work.

Techo, you have such a clean, fresh style. Is there a gel to get everything pink?? Great job..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 12:36:45 AM
Why would anyone want to shoot something like this (provided there were no compensation), is beyond me. This got a 4 from me.

Creative approach, but somehow looks a bit flat - might be the lighting. 6.

creative botony take -- the colors are great and the composition works (can't decide if I like the refection or would have liked it without the lighter bottom edge ) -- one of my ribbon picks

Cool lighting. I feel it would suit a white background more though.

12/06/2006 05:52:04 AM
well composed, nice lighting, good color. dust on surface spoils the clean setup
