Had this idea for a while. May be I should have included some "popped"-corns as well. Did not click with the challange in mind, but a friend suggested it looked some wierd landscape. He he talking about people's imagination!! Hope people will like it. This is actully a popcorn bag lit in direct sun.

Wonderful job of using light and DOF to create a beautiful, surreal landscape. Very creative.

Congrats on your Meta Blue! In this challenge that Meta Blue means way more than the actual DPC blue handed out, IMO. While others took the easier route and just copied someone else's idea to the letter, you did your own thing. While the majority of voters didn't recognize actual creativity (they rarely do) take pride in knowing you owned it and it did connect with some people.

The drama in the mundane - worthy of the meta-rib.

I totally missed this was the inside of a pop corn bag. That is hilarious and really shows how observant you are and I'm not...

I like the lonely mood.

Eureka! I love it! What an incredible eye... That is just amazing! I hope the other voters "get it" too. Who would have thought of looking inside a popcorn bag?! :)

I don;t understand how this is a landscape at all. I do like the focus and the balance.

Perhaps a little abstract in terms of buing a landscape?

Never thought the inside of a popcorn bag could be interesting.

I can't quite see what you're seeing

Popcorn bag? This just doesn't say landscape to me.

A bit dark and yellow. What is the goal of this story? The focus is slightly soft on the front seeds/popcorn.

You saw and captured something here most people would have missed. 7

hmm...sorry, I don't understand what the seeds(?) are meant to be.

Interesting. For me, I wish the "road" itself were a bit more apparent. Ya just never know what you'll see at the bottom of a popcorn bag.

Ah - the inside of microwave popcorn. Daring and different!

The inside of a microwave popcorn bag? Cool - I've never been inside one before. I bet it smells. ;-)
