I like the lines in this shot keeps the eye moving very well. Good luck!

I'm looking at this again, and upping my score at the last minute. The brightness of the light seemed overexposed to me at first, and is a bit, but detail isn't lost. The DOF is good, and the composition is inviting and happy (I love fruit loops anyway!). I could almost touch the cereal! Very crisp. You have spoken of the moment very well here. Good luck!

This picture really feels like summer. I have trouble relating to the fruit loops cause I really hate them, but I won't hold you responsible for that ;-)

nicely done! of of my favorites this week

Composition and focus are good. I especially like the lighting. Very nice!

Good idea but terribly overexposed. I'd just move the cereal bowl elsewhere to avoid the blown out areas.
08/31/2002 05:05:00 AM
I really like the feel of the light in this and the composition works well. The colour of the cereal is great. What's the blue thing at top left?

Excellent!! easy 10!

Great light. You really captured the mood of a warm summer morning. For improvement, possibly the color of the spoon handle could have been a brighter color? It's the focal point of the photo, but it doesn't seem quite perfect to me for some reason. 8.

Excellent shot. I love that the main subject of the focus is not the main subject of the shot! It really feels summery outside and this is such a positive, happy picture. Definitely a 10. 11 if could give it. - floyd

Great atmosphere, great compositionů You have captured the essence of a new day with superb use of content, exposure and DOF. The image makes one think of childhood warm summers and getting ready for fun. Great shot (10)

A little too exposed, but not bad.
08/29/2002 06:22:00 AM
Great lighting. :)

Really nice close up. You can see the sugary texture of the cereal. I love how you have the milk in the bowl. The light coming through the window is beautiful and accents the bowl very nicely. The placement of the bowl is nice and so is the way the spoon comes out of the bowl towards the top left corner. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

nice soft colors. could we have made the spoon handle a different color?
08/27/2002 11:08:00 PM
I like the high-key lighting. That blue in the background is nice. Too bad you couldn't reposition to get more of it in the shot. Nice focus on the cereal (sugar in a box). Bumping this one up because it's growing on me. ~indigo997

Something like "Summer Morning" would be more compelling as a title.

Fruit Loops... sunny morning... Hmmm... I think i can remember those days... head outside... find the big wheel.. wipe the morning dew from the seat.. begin my morning race circuit along the sidewalk around the house.

The lighting on this photo is awesome. The memory of childhood that you revived with this photo is also quite nice :) = 10 - jmsetzler

I like the lighting on the bowl itself, but I think the over-exposed brights on the table and above the chair draw the eye away from the focal point of your photo. 5, just-married

I like this a lot. Nice colors and light. good composition. 8
08/27/2002 07:02:00 AM
Nice photography. The highlit background really gives you the feel of the sun streaming in.
08/26/2002 09:40:00 PM
Very, very nice! Great DOF, too.
08/26/2002 07:59:00 PM
I love the colors.
08/26/2002 06:10:00 PM

My favourite picture this week. I love the colors and the composition. Good luck!
08/26/2002 05:44:00 PM
maybe a bit lite in background but that seems what you wanted
08/26/2002 03:44:00 PM
Fruit loops are the absolute worst, but yes, children love them.
08/26/2002 02:02:00 PM
Great lighting!
08/26/2002 01:39:00 PM
I like the warm lighting. a bit more of color saturation could've been great.
08/26/2002 11:56:00 AM
Big bowl for a little kid
08/26/2002 08:58:00 AM
Man, instant reminder of saturday morning cartoons. Good job!
