I admit I don't understand the title, but I think it's a wonderful photo anyway. Excellent lighting and a good composition. The DOF is very well chosen. One of my favourite photos this week. -stephan

I love this shot. The lighting and the golden coloring of the corn makes this an outstanding shot. 10

I would say the lighting is what makes this shot stand out among the macro crowd. I love the composition. If the DOF were not _so_ narrow, it might be even better.

Nice colors and lighting.
09/14/2002 09:34:00 AM
i like this. excellent use of shape and color

Great shot and composition--colours are beautiful focus good andrewm
09/14/2002 02:15:00 AM
Good shot. I like the way the light and the focus converge on the middle kernels. 6.

Very nicely done! (I was going to do something like this, cept that the single ear of corn I purchased was awful...wouldn't even feed it to the dogs...lol). What really captures my eye is the dof, especially the top right corner...almost as if the corn is burning or melting at the top. Great color and composition. At first I rated this a 9, but now a 10 (people say I'm a pushover, but there has to be some of us lol) Great Work

A second viewing has raised my opinion of this photo. The kernals are very clear and distinct, the "hair" is just plain great! Nice touch. At first, I didn't like the glare on the kernals, but after thinking about it, it works for me. Score raised from 7 to 9. Swash

Even tho it strictly isn't a fruit ot veg, I'll still vote on it as if it were. I like the low DOF to make only the middle in focus. Good use of a black background aswell. Very nice lighting.
09/13/2002 06:03:00 AM
Just a little too dark in lower right for my preferences.

Great job- nice lighting. :)

I hope the rude comment regarding your corn on the forum didn't upset you. It's a lovely composition..the colors are great. I grew up on corn and it was always a vegetable to us. Keep up the good work (7)
09/11/2002 05:18:00 PM
Technically excellent. Bumping this one up for the photographic value. I like how the lighting and focus fade away from the center. Nice Job! ~indigo997

Cool shot, nice use of negative space. I like the composition and the lighting, especially like the "lost edge" on the lower edge.lhall-8

cool shot 8

wonderful macro
09/11/2002 11:04:00 AM
Wonderful macro shot...I have done dozens of lifestyle ads in my work and this is the kind of shot I like to use...a littel more depth of field on the lighted part of the corn (maybe 5%) would have made this perfect..still..beautiful..9..hokie

lovely photo... great composition, texture filled, great lighting and great use of limited dof... my favorite this week. (10) ~mcmurma

Nice, I like the corn silk left on. It adds to the photograph.
09/11/2002 08:27:00 AM
I really like what you've done in this photo. Makes me want to floss just looking at it. The lighting and focus are great. 9
09/11/2002 01:56:00 AM
Somehow the lighting doesn't make htis corn look real. 5 sjgleah

I dig it. Excellent shot. I'd love to have this framed in my Kitchen.
09/10/2002 09:33:00 PM
This one is really great and one of my favorites this week. Nice work!
09/10/2002 06:03:00 PM
This is absolutely beautiful... I love the soft lighting and I also love the way each kernel of corn across the top has a nice light reflection in it... the shallow depth of field also adds a very nice touch to this photo. Great macro work... = 10 - jmsetzler

A little melting butter on the top would have been the "clincher."
09/10/2002 12:54:00 PM

I really like this...would have been a 10 had the dof been 'perfect' by dpc standards :P 8 Lisa

Beautiful photo~
09/09/2002 02:53:00 PM
Ok, this will sound corny (no pun intended) but the lighting of this and the composition has a really romantic feeling to it. It is a sharp enough focus to be clear, but still has a softness about it. great work. karmat
09/09/2002 11:23:00 AM
Great technique...(7)
09/09/2002 09:37:00 AM
striking. love the even tones, and the softness works for me. great composition.
