I think Orville Redenbacher is from Ohio, too. Send him this photo for a postcard!

I told Timfy that had I voted in this challenge, this would have been my top pick. He was OK with that (he liked it, too.) Very nice interpretation of the challenge - warm, wonderful tones, and a very good standalone shot. Light is perfect!

I wish we had these instead of blackberries. A popcorn bush would be yummy, though maybe not so good after the rain. Wonderful depth to put emphasis on the kernel. Creative and fun.

CONGRATS MICHELLE!!!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!

What a thought with this one. Oddly enough, even though I hadn't seen what shot you'd entered (and, didn't vote in this challenge), I just somehow had a notion that this might have been yours! :) It had "outside the box" written all over it and that's Mich's! *grin*

Hat is off to ya! Keep up the great work! HUGS

This really pops! A truly imaginative interpretation on the challenge. If this weren't already Top Ten, I'd nominate it for an OOBIE.

Love it, very unique and well executed image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I only give one 10 every challenge, you got mine. You thought outside the box, took something as boring as popcorn and turned it into a work of art. The rule of thirds composition is stunning, the background coloring is subdued and makes the subject stand out, the subject is interesting, and the dof is spot on. Good Job :)

11/10/2007 11:24:31 PM
clever!

Cute idea. Whites are blown out. Lacks emphasis.

Creative, popcorn stands out while the background is blurred.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2007 12:19:11 PM
I like the simplicity in this shot. I think I would have given it a higher rating if I hadn't already seen a really similar picture though. I really like the dof too.
