Dang it! Another 4th. I just cant quite seem to reach that yellow ribbon. Oh well.

Just a couple of acorns in our oak tree out front. Took maybe 8 shots, picked one, edited for 5 minutes maybe and submitted. Not really a whole lot to tell.

Tim
Congrats on the high placement, and better yet, congrats on a beautiful image. I couldn't make it through the challenge entries (i quit after about 30% due to excessive blur to the eyes) but this is really outstanding.

I can see the bokeh and the acorns. Excellent!!!!!!

Nice play of colours between the orange and blue, and the bokeh is definitely a significant part of this composition.

7 - Nice image. With the nice bold colors, I'm not sure your frame enhances the image, but your call. Good use of fore bokeh for the Challenge.

Beautiful, I love this one. Reminds me a bit of an image in one of Freeman Patterson's books. A couple things that come to mind: Did you use a polarizer? (in situations like this it helps, to reduce glare); The in focus area is so centred! The image might be more effective if the in focus area were placed a bit more on one of the thirds (in this case, towards the bottom left I think -- the big leaf out of focus at the bottom is a bit much, and could easily be cut down). (8)

Great shot, I think a great bokeh shot works great with a good vivid colour as you illustrate here. My only thought would be to reposition the acorns, they seem a little static being so close to the middle.

Ribbon! Beautiful shot. Meets the challenge perfectly.

Nice colors & subject but I think composition can be better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2007 08:04:02 PM
I had heaps of out takes like this, the technique is good but you are also using the background oof to help.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2007 07:49:21 PM
Good colors, interesting subject, the leaves provide a nice window for the acorns. Well done

Very nice colors, I just wish the acorns weren't so centered in the frame.

nice and creamy bokeh, good colors and nice composition. only thing distracting is the cyan sky color, its a bit too bright. sharpness could be better.
