My grandfather found this bottle washed up on the Atlantic coast about 50 years ago. Someone at his work in the Oak Ridge labs dated it to approx. 1850.

Underrated in my opinion, should have ended at least in top 10. Great shot.

I know that comments should be constructive but I think sometimes it is appropriate to just be appreciative. This is IMO the most beautiful photo in this collection. You have captured the best in color, tone and lighting for both classical still life and modern digital photography. I am very far from expert in photography but I'm quite schooled in the arts and one doesn't often have the opportunity to speak directly to the "artist" to express the inner joy his/her work has brought. 10

Love the light on this one, and how the green leaves are going around the bottle. Good setup.

There's conflicts in the theme of this. On the one hand, your celebrating the urn with summery flowers, full of passion. On the other, your chocking it with the vines and the darkness that surrounds it. Stick to the fundamentals--theme is half the battle.

nice light, color, has the oil painting 'feel'

DOF no so good. The flower is out of focus. Nice composition, good lighting

A good execution on a tired cliche. :)

nice lighting...

Nice one. The red plant out of focus is a little distracting to me though

I like the composition very much, but think the focus is a little soft and lighting too harsh. I also wish there was better seperation of the subject and background.

just about as perfect as I have seen so far....thanks!
11/06/2003 07:18:18 PM
I think this is lovely. Love the vine twined around the bottle.
11/06/2003 05:16:34 PM
