Wow - what a creative mind, and a terrific eye for a compositional layout. This is fun to look at, and should be in every bakery in Switzerland. Wait - are there trees in Switzerland? I know I at least heard some yodeling...

In my humble opinion this is by far the best pic in this challenge. The number 1 is a good one, but a great shame that this one didn't score the highest.

Anyways, congratulations on the ribbon.

02/20/2008 11:00:59 AM
Great shot! I didn't get through these during voting, but looking at the thumbnail I thought this was really a landscape with a cloud that resembled bread. Great imagination sure to have people, including me, using it for inspiration.

Congrats. I really am sorry I gave this beauty a 7 on first round, and I usually come back thru and reassess. I apologize, I never got to come back around (little thing called vacation). I would have seriously upped your entry. It is by far the most creative and masterfully done.

I just knew this had to be yours!! CONGRATULATIONS!! Brilliant idea and one of the only shots that really stood out for me in this challenge! Way to go Rina! :o)

Now, that's just showing off! ( You can tell I wish I'd thought of it!)- very good, when I saw it onscreen as the thumbnail, I had to do a doubletake to realise it wasn't just a loaf of bread put in where a mountain had been. But looking at it fuller, I see how well thought of it really was. The one with hamster in the hole in the loaf is good too, but I think yours is more subtle.... Well done and keep thinking like that!

Thank God we don't have to vote utilizing thumbnails. This woulda gotten the DNMC for sure! Even expanded, I had to really look at it (ok...I am old and my eyesight isn't the best) and so glad I did.

Rina, the photography on this is top rate. The setup for the shot had to have been fun. But mostly, the imagination to come up with this idea is simply wonderful! Congrats on the red! Great photograph!!

My first impression was that this was an alligator laying in wait. Nice reflection.

02/16/2008 10:33:32 PM
Beautiful landscape :) I like the reflections of the trees and mountains in the lake. You could have waited a little for more dramatic clouds. ROFL - 10

great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2008 03:24:02 PM
You are just too clever! You used the rosemary so artistically by giving it 2 interpretations: the added focus on the flavor, & the visual suggestion of pine trees. And then, there's that reflection! Now that I've looked at it some more I get an idea of an iceberg. I love anything with rosemary in it!

Cool breadscape! The "trees" to the left look a little OOF to me, but that's just a minor nitpick.

This had better ribbon or I might protest on your behalf :-)

Very creative! Love the rosemary-as-foliage touches. My only tiny comment is the "blue sky" is a bit dark. But you've got a 10 and favourite from me.
