Rather than looking at the positive shape, I tried to concentrate on creating interesting negative spaces between the bamboo and the edges of the frame.

Excellent use of negative space!

I like the DOF here, weird little plant. Nice job capturing it in an interesting way.

I really like the colors in this, and the depth of field used. Would make a neat print for an apartment or something. karmat

Good pic, I don't quite see the negative space

Absolutely great shapes created by the leaves and white space. The angle is good, and the positioning of the stem and pot in the frame very strong.
Great image!

I love the color and framing on this, and how the leaves intertwine with the negative space.

nicely done. I would be interested to see what it looks like if you cropped the left 1/3 of the pic

The colors and sharpness in this are superb.

I'm usually bad at botany, but I don't think that's bamboo...no effect on my score, however.

Good photo. No effective use of neg space. 7

The green stands out really well against the white background. I also love the angle of your shot. 8-Martin

Im so happy to see that some people grasp the concept of this current challenge. Good use of negative space

spiraling action of leaves/space is attention grapping along with good dof. great shot! (9) ~mcmurma

Very nice!

According to my art school definition, this is one of the best uses of negative space. If you remove the subject, the other spaces are still interesting, Nice composition and colors all green. I wonder if the point that is in perfect focus is right- is that the focal point of the picture? I would have rather had the stub of the stem in focus or else the top leaf, instead of the iddle of the leaf stems. How about 9?

I like this!!!! You conected the object to the borders! Very nice.

I like to simple 2 colour effect. I wonder whether it could have been framed to remove more of the pot which distracts a little. 6

interesting idea and nice colors
09/16/2002 08:41:00 PM
I like the spiraling effect
09/16/2002 07:55:00 PM
you dont have one of those for luck too, there everywhere now. good job on the photo by the way.

Great work I love this. Great color, composition and dof. Such a cool perspective. Neg Space: I believe that the white neg space most definately adds umph to this photo. Excellent work 10

I like the use of neg spc in this shot. I especially like the way all of the lines and curves of the leaves lead the eye down into the "stalk" of the plant, and on to the bottle. Very interesting, and a very engaging composition. lhall-8
