Outstanding! More elegant than any other submition and with much less effort and much less "gimmeky".

This is one of those ones that BEG to be sold as a print. I am sure someone would like to hang this on their wall. I am one of your tens, btw. Very VERY well executed. Congratulations on the ribbon.

I think I like the texturedish paper a great deal more than I would like a plain white one.

This is like having a CT without all the technology. You must have spent a lot of time slicing to get them as thin as you did. Congratulations on Yellow...

i liked this more, before i found out they were grapes. it reminded me of a dragonfly. nice idea for the lighting. would have liked to see the stem cleaned up a bit

I like the delicate slicing required for this 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2007 05:43:26 PM
This is neat. Must have been a pain to cut those.

To me this seems blow out in a lot of places. I'd probably rather see the grapes going upward too, especially since they are being called a bouquet.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2007 02:00:28 PM
This is a very sharp idea. I like it and the background a lot. This could be part of a series of fruit boquets.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2007 01:21:54 PM
Very nice color and coordination.

Now I really like what you were going for here in this presentation! Showing us the texture of the inside of the fruit; illuminating it from the inside out. Are you familiar with Steven N. Meyers who does X-ray Floral Photography? Your entry has a similar style and would really pop visually if it was on a stark white background. The 'aged' splotted paper backdrop's texture takes away from the visual impact of the grape bouquet. The same can be said of the think red border that outlines the composition. A simple & clean backdrop with no texture is needed to make this beauty SHINE by popping off the page and capture & hold our attention. Again good composition and great idea it just needs a little more attention on the execution and this photo could move out of the above average category and into the exceptional category.
