Fine, so this isn't dappled light in the "pinhole camera" sense. But the rose petals are dappled, having spots of different shades, due to light and texture.

That's close enough in my book. Besides, how many tree shadows can one challenge hold? =)

Self evaluation: A less-than-stunning floral shot, pretty ho hum. If voting, I'd give it a 5 or 6, but many won't like the processing and others will DNMC. My prediction: 5.2

I'm not totally clear on the dappled light definition and whether or not the light thru the blinds counts. Anywho, what I do like about this photo tho is how you've balanced out the white and bright with the beautiful red of the roses.

Nice interesting petal shapes of the roses.

Interesting, unusual angle. Nice, the way the shadows are reflected in the vase.

Excellent focus and DOF. Also, great colors, and of course dappled light. An eight for you.

Great still life. Perfect flowers. I would like more depth of field (to see the glass jar in focus too).

Great shot. To me, by clearly showing the roses on a table, you've offered a sense of anticipation. A decorated table is normally used for something...breakfast, dinner... and you've done a great job of conveying that.

Nice depth of field, good composition and great dappling. This is really very nice. Well done!

Color of the Roses seems odd to me. I would have adjusted to get better Red, but that may be what causes me to get consistently low scores too. :)

I like the straight lines of light on top of the circular roses. Very geometric, a good photo. Oh, and i really like the cropping.

not really dappled. Think dapple grey mare. That's what I am looking for. Random shadows and light.

Were these pink or red? Tops cut off. the reflection of the stripes in the vase would have been cool.
05/21/2008 02:54:52 PM
Good idea, though in need of contrast and saturation
