I didn't recognize you (then again, I didn't vote, either) but I would have recognized the angle of the test tubes perhaps. Very well done and congrats on another ribbon! You and Irene and Hotpasta need to keep this up to keep our dear Timfy in his place. :-)

you're as bad as me at predicting your scores Oliver...great job my friend...nice to be on the podium with you!!!

I expected to see something good from you based on this:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/553/120/394731.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/553/120/394731.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Your scores are amazingly consistent, but this time you got the red. Congrats! :)

Nice shot. Top ten for sure. The colors are great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very well executed textbook (typical) "chemistry" shot. dof works well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/17/2008 02:47:01 AM
wonderful, vibrant color
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/16/2008 08:21:16 AM
Could see this in an ad! The DOF is great along with the colors, lighting, and focus. My top pick for this challenge (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This looks like a photo from a stock site, thats a good thing. Its crisp, clean and well executed. The depth of field isolates the subject matter well and the out of focus guy in the background underlies the chemistry theme. This is a great example of blowing the highlights to good effect, as they are only blown in the background and this again adds the focus to the foreground.

The only thing which lets this down a little is that I think the concept is a little too obvious and I would have liked to have seen a more creative interpretation of the challenge. However its tough to balance ideas against the guys like me and the 'DNMC!' crowd so I won't hold it aginst you ;) 8.

Powerful image, perhaps more as a documentary picture than an artwork, but in this genre it's perfect. 9.

Well done - the oof face looks intent and is very interesting. Exposure is lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2008 07:44:55 AM
Bound to be a high scorer! Very well done :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very simply a great photo. I can't really add anything 'Helpful', but, I can tell you I think this photo will be one of the ribbon winners: 10

I like the angle you used here, it makes this more interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2008 12:02:14 AM
nice DOF & angle
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 11:05:55 PM
good composition, nice bright colors. I like how the face is oof, but I can still see the side of the face is blown out some. (or maybe the other side is too dark??) good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 11:00:18 PM
This has stock written all over it - a very commercial feel. Well thought out, good composition - great shot! 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 06:20:23 PM
I really like the use of your bokeh here. The subject is beautifully blurred in the background and the tubes and hand re totally in focus! I also like the colors you used! very nice...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 06:07:04 PM
cool composition and good execution....one of my picks for top 5 (so far)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 05:04:14 PM
Wow, this is a great picture! Good composition, Good light, Good focus. Can't fault this one.

06/11/2008 01:23:45 PM
great title!
06/11/2008 11:38:52 AM
Perfect portrayal of the idea that everyone else had! Great use of depth of field!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 10:44:53 AM
I like the elementary colors with this and the sharp focus on the "chemicals".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 10:05:28 AM
Technically very well accomplished. I like the colors, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2008 01:39:19 AM
Great shot! Good composition, pose, lighting, DOF. And your model even has a typical "scientist face" with the glasses and all. ;-)

I was planning to do something similar, but didn't have time in the end. I want to see this one on the front page!
