I didn't even think about the "Patterns." Good job.

The colors are amazing. I never would have thought of that. I'm a little iffy on the yellow, of course, but green and blue are two of my most favorite colors. Haha, guess my third, if you can.

I love it. Even the little 'shine' at the top right just looks like it belongs there.

hehe, now that you mentioned it I see that's four sheets of paper. maybe you should have called it "3 colors". congrats on the 4th, though

Oh darn. I was hoping this one would ribbon. It was my favorite! But another honorable mention is nice too, huh? :)

This entry lacks the strong repetition of my other top picks for Pattern, but the sheer artistry of the composition is awesome. I could easily see a large print selling for thousands just for its beauty, and this would be equally appropriate for a Free Study. Nice! 9

Finally figured out the pattern...blue, yellow, blue, yellow then combined for the green. This is almost too abstract for this challenge, but you have done a great job with intrepretation.

Beautiful colors - in true DPC eye candy fashion. Something in the slightly dark feel of this shot makes me think I might know whose it is. Clearly the work of a true professional. ; ) Back to bump you up to 9.

Total: 6.2
Vote: 6

Remarks: Variation is a wonderful thing when repetition is the theme. Here it just flows conically in- or declining, through the frame. What's striking is that the pattern is forever changing while maintaining a constant of shape and line (I suspect the foreground green outlines a curve too large to be contained by the margins).

The diagonal perspective is dynamically placed, too, against a measured rhythm of rush and recess. The (apparent} bouquet suggests a similar progression, sans the plastic relief of the fore- and middle grounds.

I converted the image to black and white (gradient map) to see if the colours provided a critical element. My impression was that it held its own, albeit intrinsically like cello in a jazz quartett. It did, however, loose the contemporary sense of the colour version.

I love the colors in this and the "movement" from one color to the next.

This picture is balance and I like the vivid colors.

Oh yes! This is FABULOUS ! ! ! Certainly the best one I've seen so far. I suspect to see this one on the front page. I hope so.

The green peice of paper is a little out of place with the green and tellow, but the colors go very well together

Colorful and well focused, but the upper right is a little too unoccupied.
