These are real bowling pins, on a real bowling lane, lit by a real pinsetter. I wanted better lighting, but I don`t have the white umbrella in my back pocket yet... I learned a lot this week, again...

Great symmetry, though a bit dark.

nice... this works well as a b&w ... I bet you've received a bunch of comments about "how it would look better in color", but screw them.. its a good shot! -8

10 pins for a 10 score

This is well executed and technically perfect in my opinion. The only thing it lacks for me is appeal. good job though. 7, just-married

Very Balance!
10/05/2002 09:52:00 PM
I like it, -just for the smile it brought me!
10/04/2002 08:32:00 PM
Very well done black and white image with good contrasts. Simple but strong composition which draws the eye right to the head-pin.

Even though the "interest" level for me is on the lower side, this is a wonderful photo with great reflections. Great focus, DOF. 9 Swash

Love the b&w. The reflection is great. lhall-7

Very nice picture, reflection is very good, and the B&W gives it a very nice touch.
10/03/2002 02:38:00 PM
interestingly semetrical
10/03/2002 09:29:00 AM
Pinball – wizard shot :o) Love it, great shot – I presume this shot is somehow related to the other pinball shot (just curious) – I like this shot (only slightly) better than the other, mainly because the symmetry adds to the overall composition… (10)

excellent. very striking (!)
10/02/2002 10:52:00 PM
this is beautiful. 9--shutterfly

Very nice. I love the B&W for this. I like the reflection of light in the pins as well as the pins on the floor.

One of my 10's this week. I really love the angle and framing/cropping. I think that the reflections are perfect. The focus and clarity are great. I really love the lighting. Excelent shot! Good luck in the challenge. ~hbunch7187~

very clean....nice shot
10/02/2002 01:55:00 AM
None of our bowling alleys in our city have such polished white pins and the machine lined them up so perfectly with the logos on the pins all facing the same way. LOL Nice quality picture.
10/01/2002 02:39:00 PM
absolutely love it...almost like an optical illusion...the pins seem to shift sometimes

very nice job!
10/01/2002 02:06:00 PM
Very nice, good composition, excellent detail, nice idea. 9-Martin

I really like this. I think the black and white was a wonderful choice. Definitly my most fav. givin' you a strike, 10. inspzil
10/01/2002 11:02:00 AM
Nice photo - well lit/exposed, focused, etc. I can't help thinking an action shot wilth bowling ball and flying pins would have been so cool though. Still worth a 7 in its tranquil form.
10/01/2002 10:03:00 AM
is it straight? it looks tilted to me
10/01/2002 05:57:00 AM
Brilliant setup shot. I immediately saw this thumbnail and said 'Wow'. Nice use of B&W too. Good luck with this weeks challenge :) 9

I think the back pins are a bit too dark, but I like the overall picture

I like this. A very good example of breaking the "thirds" rule to advantage. Good luck in the challenge. Grayce aka Gracious

hmmm... very symmetric (on the horizontal AND vertical). The effect works nicely for this picture. The lighting is great. I love how the front pin is highlighted and the rest gradate to dark grey.
