The hard to distinguish pile of paper at the base of the basket detracts from this picture - for me anyway.

Nice! Clever idea, well executed.

I really like everything about this photo

funky and stark - I'd like to see a bit more detail in the crumpled paper around the bin but other than that - very clean

I like this shot, but I think it would look better if the top of the background was pure white to match the rest of the shot.

really cool ! I wish I could say more, but I don't know what. I like this a lot though.

Nice emptiness. The vivid blue is striking. I find the paper infront of the bin too blown out, and merging into the background too much for my tastes. And I'd prefer the blue paper further to the left of the frame to balance the bin, but that's just my preference.

did you blue your nose with that hanky? great shot 8

Great use of negative space and a clever idea.

This is a very fun shot. Not an easy photo to catch. I hope you do well with it, I like it. Cruble of colored papers on the floor might add interest, but might take from the neg-space.

Creative & nice use of the single blue piece.

I like the composition. It also works well as high-key. I think it's just a tad overdone tho. The papers on the outside of the basket are barely discernable and have no detail left. I also feel like there's just a little too much empty space. You definitely need some, but maybe not quite so much. Still, it's a fun pic to look at. You did a good job stopping the motion, and the title is cute. I like that you used one lone blue paper. ~indigo997

I think the idea was good but it may have worked better with a darker background. I can't see the white paper around the wastebasket because it all blends in.

The litter around the bin dissappears, but I guess you know that.

You could get the position of the blue litter right by dangling it on a white thread from a pole.

very nice use of a high key atmosphere for your photo :) excellent job at keeping the background even as well... the darker area at the top is barely noticeable. The high key nature of this image really helps deliver a sense of anger and stress to go along with this garbage can... nice shot :) - 8 - jmsetzler

I like the blue paper. It really stands out. Did you take this in a white room? 9

very cool use of - space :)

Great concept on this one. The color of the blue paper jumps out and almost makes the rest of the photo irrelevant. I like it!

very cool. I would like to see what the original photo looked like. did you just max the brightness out in photoshop to get this effect? cmcvety.

Great work Great pun on words - witty. Yes, the neg space definately affects the impact of this image. (was there tweaking of the colors, I sense that the trash can area is slightly blue - this does not affect the score, more for my own learning) 9

Creative shot. The blue towel idea is super.

I like the starkness of this picture and the way the blue stands out against it. One of my favorite!

Very nice shot. I like it. I would just have framed a 'little' more to the right, not much and ... for a very graphical picture ... the fact that the bin is not fully horizontal is keeping my eye back to that 'default' all the time. 7
