Sugar and spice and everything nice. And I ended up with a boy. lol. Very nice photo. I could see this in a poem book that has illistrations. The angle, focus and lighting are great. You did a wonderful job of keeping reflections and glare off the cup. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

Its a little too dark and a little out of focus for me. And the reflection in the spoon doesn't help that much either. 4.

this is a really beautiful photo Sugar 'n Spice and Everything Nice

Nice lighting on this. Good background gives a nice contrast. There's a shadow being cast across the sugar which is just where I would have liked the main focus of attention to be. 7 - floyd

Very well executed. Why didn't I think of this??? Lighting is good. Composition is excellent. Focus is good. 8

Aaaaaaaw. Like the composition and the viewpoint. Lovely mix of colours and gives a real sense of a saying from times past.

nice shot. the highlights are a little blown out on the sugar bowl and the focus seems a bit soft on the lid, but the composition good and seems well thought out. (6) ~mcmurma

What an excellent shot. My only bad comment for this is that without the title, I would not have any Idea how this related to the challenge. But, it certianly does meet the challenge. The quality of this is to die for. The position of blue highlights in the cloth are positioned perfectly. - one of my favorites for the challenge - (Gotcha)

Excellent idea! You are very creative! Good work!

Great composition, but I think I would have liked it more if the lighting was more uniform, or if there was more light on the sugar and spice part. karmat

Of the four 10's from me this week, this is my favorite. This is a very well done set up shot. I like the reflection in the spoon, but a small square of light strikes me as slightly nasty, but you can touch that up in Photoshop later. 10 Swash

very clever and well shot
08/27/2002 07:10:00 PM
Nice title and composition
08/27/2002 07:09:00 AM
A super set-up shot. Very cool.
08/26/2002 11:07:00 PM
Doesn't remind me of childhood
08/26/2002 10:21:00 PM
Very nicely done... very glad I read the title! :)
08/26/2002 08:46:00 PM
Interesting idea! I like this. 6 -lennier

Don't forget chemical X! :) I like it. Good lighting.
08/26/2002 05:23:00 PM
you know I thought about that but I couldn't remember what little boys are made of--nice photo
08/26/2002 03:45:00 PM
Oooooh some are. lol Nice composition, colors and perspective. Good job. Score 7 Justine

too much constructed
08/26/2002 04:54:00 AM
The reflections of lighing on the vase are distracting
08/26/2002 01:14:00 AM
This is a beautifully executed photo... the lighting is excellent. The image itself doesn't really show me a feeling or a visualization of 'childhood', but i still like it :) - jmsetzler

Very nice. Great idea.....I don't see this theme represented in any other picture in this challenge. Certainly an imaginative idea. The only concern I have in this photo is the unfocused edge of the red flower. This is good. =9 syamjonimi ;'-D

Beautiful setup and shot.

(My wife and raised two girls. We love them dearly, but they helped me appreciate that rhyme is nothing more than just a rhyme. They fought worse than my brother and I!)
