Meet "playfoam" - a funny styrofoam bead sticky sculpting material I got at a toy store. I shaped it and put it in front of a colorful candy box.

Nice job! I wanted to comment during the challenge but apparently a fellow llama can't even comment. Sheesh! (Unless I'm just blind).

Anyhow, really nice shot. Great idea, colors, etc, etc. :) Good job.

Is that Floam?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 10:55:37 PM
Looks like magnetic peas from outer space. Either that or purplish colored Kix cereal. I'm not sure.

Cool! Nice color matching.

... are they grapes? I like this... how long did it get you to make the grapes (or whatever) into that position and STAY THERE? 8.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/24/2007 09:40:14 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/24/2007 04:10:45 PM
Cool image and colors!! Dippin Dots Icecream? Trix Cereal?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/24/2007 03:58:17 PM
This shot is really sweet. I have no idea what those are, but the colors are great and the DOF is awesome as well. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2007 05:45:44 PM
Cool wave
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2007 02:59:22 PM
Maybe some puffy cereal like Trix? Great colors!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2007 02:56:41 PM
cool pic, no idea what it is!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2007 12:08:54 PM
Purple styrafoam balls?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2007 03:04:22 AM
Great colors here! my guess- you've compiled this from your collection of civil war era musket balls, meticulously collected out in the fields and painstakingly cleaned and restored to presentation quality
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2007 01:10:50 AM
Very nice and creative also. I'm not even going to try to guess what this is part of but the colours work well together and I want to go get a surf board!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2007 12:00:04 AM
Are these the little Styrofoam balls
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2007 11:44:49 PM
Looks like Dippin' Dots ice cream or some kind of candy. Not sure, but this is a very cool photo!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2007 10:43:14 PM
nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2007 10:32:59 PM
Sticky balls of grape chewing gum? Uhm... clay maybe? I hope you didn't sit and make all of those! Great shape and a nice vibrant background. Lighting seems a bit harsh on the wave in comparison to the soft background, but doesn't really distract from the overall shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2007 06:59:11 PM
Looks like Yogos! Great color combo and composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2007 02:26:55 PM
I love this! The colors, the shape, the DOF.... very cool.

Ice Cream of the future? dip'n dots. I'm still waiting for the future to get here so I can have some. Great pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 10:39:23 PM
Surfs up !!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 09:56:01 PM
nice color contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 09:08:43 PM
Looks like a close up of Floam or that kids stuff that makes shapes, but then again, it could be that new icecream that comes in little pellets. It's cool anyway, nice set up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 07:24:10 PM
Sticky foam ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 06:41:04 PM
Neat colors. My guess...dippin' dots ice cream.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 02:57:16 PM
Oh how cool! Is that "floam" or whatever that stuff is called? Love the colours and this is a perfect photo for this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 02:55:50 PM
Really cool shot. Really good focus and the DOF works, nice complementing background too. Looks like foam, or the new shaping dough Floam?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 12:52:50 PM
styrofoam balls? Maybe some purple cereal glued together? Don't know but its cool looking and I like the contrasting color for the bg.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 12:13:08 PM
Small plastic beaded object such as a wreath or other decorative piece?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 09:04:53 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 08:17:49 AM
led balls for guns?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 01:43:22 AM
Good image, reminds me of that famous Japanese painting of the wave. It's a mystery to me how the balls can cling to each other. I've never seen magnets like that. Good shot. Nice yellow and red background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 12:22:58 AM
Is that floam? I love that stuff but it's too dang expensive. I love the color here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2007 09:05:04 PM
I don't know what it is, but it's a cool looking photo - good job with the colors!
