I wish you didnt use the grape ones. Too dark for the photo. 5.

Good idea but I think the picture suffers a lot from the reflections ... between 5 and 6

Great interpretation, great composition, great colours, strong artistic merit… (9)

These look like they were frozen and when they were taken out of the freezer, they frosted up a bit and it's hard to read the labels. These definately remind me of childhood. My son eats these like they are going out of style. the angle and lighting are nice. you did a good job of keeping reflection and glare off the pops. You may have wanted to mix the colors up a bit. I'd like to see another one of those blue ones seperating the 3 reds on the right. The blue one almost seems to glow. If you haven't seen it already, you might want to check out guybrowme's "Cool, fruity, fun" photo in the Advertisement challenge. Kind of similar to this one. I like them both. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

Looks like another pencil shot. Nice lighting and a good choice of subject. Not a great arrangement for me though. 6 - floyd

Nice strong vivid colors. Goes to show that the complicated pictures are not always the best.

This reminds me of the tv station sign off screen where they play the national anthem late at night :) - jmsetzler

yum.. i think something is kinda funky with the lighting here. Maybe too much glare in spots, though I'm not real sure. I like the colors though. karmat

Abstract.....cool idea....get it? "cool"?? I kill me..lol. Overall I like the idea...I think it'a a little too something though...I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's just the light distracting me and not enough contrast....but I really like the idea. kdj 6

Nice bold colors, good lighting, DOF and composition. lhall

Good attempt - I like this photo. Have you tried the same set-up but with illumination from behind? I think that may be better in bringing out the coulours and eliminating the shine of the plastic wrapping.
08/27/2002 01:43:00 AM
my memory is "otter pops" same thing.. didn't have the black one.. but yes !! memory .. making me crave one right now :) the lighting is a tad harsh, maybe more natural light would have been good. 6

Is this trying to copy an older challenge submission?
08/26/2002 09:44:00 PM
This is cute, but this photo has been digitally aletered too much.
08/26/2002 07:34:00 PM
Love the colors.
08/26/2002 06:10:00 PM
Nice colorful composition.
08/26/2002 05:18:00 PM
I wish Flavor Ice would have been more noticalbe.

I like the colours. I can see the childhood element. So what is missing ? Maybe a focus point ? Or a diagonal ? I don't know and I'm sure one of the better photographers will tell you. Good luck.
08/26/2002 11:05:00 AM
Wow! Very colorful.
08/26/2002 07:38:00 AM
I think I ate a million....loved them. Good colors, light a little too harsh. Score 6 Kee

Despite the wall to wall bright colors this image is very static. Not terribly exciting to look at. Sorry. Journey

Nice. I like this a lot. I was going to try to do something similar, but could not get the lighting. you captured it well.
08/26/2002 12:39:00 AM
