This model had no clue at all, took the photo while the camera was still dangling by my stomach and walking. Lighting was pretty high in there, but this high shutter and closed aperture at F9 made the original photo very dim. I doubt this will do well.

this is a very cool shot, no idea why it scored so low. The only thing i can think of is that the processing on the person looks a tad heavy handed, like his face looks a bit too 'dodged' but i dunno

I like this shot - the leading lines are great and draw your eye to the center of the photo. Good colors too.

I really like this. Bare flourescent lights and gray floors are ugly in a beautiful sort of way.

256 - pulease

I see stuff like this on photographers sites - you know, those guys that charge $100,000 a day? makes me want to go shoot a series like it! I appreciate you seeing it, shooting it, and entering it.

There's something I really like about this photo. Very imaginative composition.

As soon as this popped up the supermarket muzak started playing in my head. Freaky.

I like the way the lines all lead to the center, but the colors are a little distracting

I like the composition here, but there seems to be a bluish cast to the coloring that is a bit detracting.

Love the blue lights and the barren appearence. It works very well with your idea.

nice job but not much on the candid. Too busy.

Good capture of an area that doesn't usually allow cameras.

This is cool because it looks kind of 'sci-fi' to me. Nice perspective too.

Look at what you did!!! This is such a great essay on modern culture, on consumerism, on the overload of information, just amazing. could that guy be any more perfect if you had cast this and scheduled a shoot?

The processing on him is a little sloppy - the front of his face burned into the shelf behind it, the shorts and shirt feel like the burning bled into them too. The face is the key point here, the puzzlement the message of the whole shot IMO, so I'm going 9 instead of the 10. But what a great catch. and if you staged it, way to stage a candid!

Interesting setting and idea. I like the perspective lines. Would be a little more interesting if the person were reaching for something rather than just reading the shelf. Color balance feels too far off on the blue side. I'd also prefer seeing the person in focus rather than the cold case at the end of the aisle.

Interesting image although does seem to suffer a little from noise and grain

Love this capture, the aisles with the freezer at the end - MAGIC!
