waiter, there's a carrot on my plate!
a good reminder to thank the powers that be that i dont have to be having such diets...

p/s: i wonder if re-arranging the carrots into a face might make this photo better or worse

This is magic: the plate looks the moon beginning to be in, or out of, eclipse, and the carrots, well, reminiscent of pi, reinforcing circle motif...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/27/2007 01:07:37 AM
me like :)

06/27/2007 12:20:02 AM
Poor Dieter, all he gets is two little carrots! I guess it's better than "one meatball" :) Congratulations on your high finish, you're good!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/27/2007 12:09:55 AM
Awesome! So simple, yet elegant .... and they're carrots. Lighting is great! looks almost like they are floating in front of some crazy lunar eclipse or something. cool.

Wow they look like they're floating.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 08:48:38 PM
Is this symbolic? Like the black plate and background represent the big black hole one's stomach feels like while on a diet? hehe. Otherwise, nice way to make the two bits of carrot stand out.

Is Dieter a rabbit? If not he'll be livid.

This is very svelte - I like its tangible clarity and design.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 05:43:29 PM
wow, this is a cool shot! carrots look very in focus, don't know if the lack of separation in on the top and bottom were done on purpose (i'll just say it is so i can give you a higher score!) but i love this image, congrats!

I really love the uniqueness of this composition. The lighting is perfect. And the splash of bold color: awesome!

Interesting concept and creative lighting. The negative space is used particularly well here.

Beautiful effect on this picture. But I am a little confused by the lighting. How were the carrots lit? Surely not with the same light that lit the plate?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 01:18:28 PM
This image is really evocative somehow. I like what you've done. It's so dark and empty and then there's this bright splash of orange - it narrows the focus of the viewer on to the carrots, and yet the rim of the plate is still visible, framing the emptiness of the meal.

06/25/2007 11:49:34 AM
This is fantastic and I hope it ribbons.

good minimal use of negative space. the minimal approach rarely works, at least in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2007 11:36:37 AM
Oh ya this is very fine
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2007 05:38:41 AM
Looks like carrots in orbit. A nice shot that could easily be in a magazine. Not sure if I'd like to see a little more of the plate or not though.
