Challenge: Best of 2006 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Date: Jan 11, 2006
Date Uploaded: Jan 12, 2007

I submitted within seconds of the deadline LOL.

I had to choose a shot and forgot to dig through my shots during the day and got to it during the evening. This is actually a different frame of the DQed shot and I tried to edit it differently, learning from before. I dont expect to ribbon or place in the top50, I can hope though ;) but getting at least a 6.4 would be nice. Dont know why I chose this one, it was the last minute jitters really. It was this or a much safer landscape shot.

I am curious as to what you used for your reflection. I use a piece of dark granite for reflection shots. A 12x12 granite tile might be large enough. It gets rid of the doubled images in mine.

Very nice. I love the lighting and the reflection on this. This will be in the top 10.

very, very nice. however, you need to find some way to handle the doubled-up reflection--it's noticable enough to detract from an otherwise killer shot.

This looks familiar. Still love it just as much as when I first laid eyes on it. Well done!

double reflection is a bit distracting (i understand you were not allowed to clone it out). 8

A cracking idea for a Photograph.
I like its effect
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting - would make a very good print. I would probably move colour temperature a little towards the cooler side, but that's a minor detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Okay I can see this was from the same shoot as your DQ ribbon image...but it is definitely a different shot. Good work and I hope it does well for you.
