Excellent. This one it is running for a ribbon I think. But it is no coriander. 10 anyway

Nice DOF

Oooo. I'm not a fan, personally, of coriander -- it always smells off to me -- but I very much like this shot (and is that a bit of cinnamon in the background?). Nice colours, lighting, focus.

isn't it star anise?

Like the composition and definitely love the spice. Wish all the subjects were in focus....like the double shadows withthe gradation in colors...perhaps if it were a bit darker they would show up better and add a nice touch to the piece. Great subject.

Lovely color, composition and clarity. Also I like the color in the shadows. Gorgeous image. To me it expresses more aroma in the sense of flavour, not so much scent.

Good try. The DOF is an issue as too are the shadows caused by the light source.

I like the rich, warm, earthy colors. The lighting is good, as is the composition, although not sure about the upper right corner - I think it could have probably done with being cropped out or else moved out of the way when shooting.

Beautiful close up and excellent composition, the cross shape is wonderful and the position of the pepper and cinammon really works well. Colour is a little toooo red.

Miam!!! Beautiful colors. Nice composition
11/26/2003 05:35:34 PM
Contrast is a bit high, but the composition is nice

Coriander? Cinnamon, Anaise, and allspice... Doesn't corriander look a bit like pepper? Let me d=go check my kitchen shelf...anyway, I like all the warm rusty color, and the composition of different shapes. The shinyness of the anaise seed compared to the roughness of the pod. The shadows beneath detract a bit - wish they weren't so obvios, or at least not so red.

It looks more like Anis and cinamon.... but maybe you put that title to have people liek me write this. :-)

I have no idea what coriander smells like, bu this makes me want to go smell it! Nice shot with pleasing composition. Something about the lighting feels a little "off" to me - maybe the purplish-pink cast shadows, and the yellowish feel to the shot. I would love to see this on a nice stark white background.

I had no idea that is what corianda looked like. Nice shot, great composition, good lighting.
