Challenge: Still Life (Classic Editing)
Camera: Olympus C-4000Z
Location: Toronto, Canada
Date: Nov 4, 2003
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/13 sec.

Date Uploaded: Nov 4, 2003

Spices I used: cloves, black and red peppercorns, poppy seeds, sweet spanish red pepper, turmeric, parsley, whole nutmeg, and in the mortar there are sundried tomatos.

This was by far one of the most fun challenges to shoot. I learned a lot about lighting a setup without creating major flares or hot spots. I used two lamps pointed at the ceiling using only reflected light.

Sorry about the wrinkles. I shot this very late at night just before the challenge deadline with no time to iron them out.

Front to back sharpness is a little lacking 9 from me but whether I would have given 10 if sharper I can say for now

Very creative, nice setup and colors. I would have ironed out the wrinkles in the tablecloth.

It's more suited for a cookbook, but I do like the colors. The downfall of this picture is the background. Not only is it wrinkled (seeminly accidentally), but it's boring altogether. Here we have the spice, nuts, and grains of the earth. Well the background is anything but earthy.

Great shot, nice colors, the composition is excellent.....it just needs something or something taken away....let me come back to it.

I really like where you chose to place the little bowls. The lighting is very simple and clear, and the focus is very good. The balance of colors is great. Good choice of border. I like this image very much, 8.

the strongest part is the tricolor in the middle, or maybe i'm just exited because it matches the steel pulse t-shirt i'm wearing. whatever the case, i'd've ditched most everything else and concentrated on that burst of sweet color. but don't get me wrong, this is a nice picture.

I absolutely love the three lines of colour in the middle of such a dark photo. Striking.
