10 - easily... Great shot, superb composition, excellent colour, outstanding quality… You have used a neutral background with excellent effect in this shot; it propels the image forward with an explosion of amazing colours… Great shooting and technique – this is a fantastic example of what can be achieved when both lighting and composition are spot on…

Wow. I've never seen one of these actually in existence. lol. Great colors, it actually looks like it's been licked on a few times. I like the shinyness too. Lighting is perfect. Angle and placement are very visually appealing. Great photo and good luck in the challenge.

i had one of these as a child. I wanted it so bad. once i got it i found it was waay more lollipop than i could handle though. after three days it got stuck to my bedside table and i had to chip it off with a butter knife. i hated that lollipop. good composition and color. (6) ~mcmurma

this is nice but you need a less stark light. you can soften it by bouncing it off a wall or sheet onto the pop, or put a sheet or some silk in between it and the pop. the larger the source, the softer the light. so a big glow is softer than a small one even at the same intensity.

Great dof and contrast...love the textures, colors, and sheen on the lolly. The composition is somewhat off for me though. Lisa

Looks good enough to eat. The black background sets it off nicely.

One of the best pictures this week (and one of the simplest).

Beautiful shot ! Difficult to find anything wrong with it. Maybe too much reflection near the middle of the lolipop. Congratulations. 8 marcvg

great shot..dramatic and well composed
08/28/2002 11:40:00 AM
This makes me hungry just looking at it :) The colors, along with the lighting, make this photo quite appealing. I also like the composition with the center of the lollipop placed in the upper right corner... good work! - jmsetzler
