Thanks for all the comments and votes. This was a fun challenge, I love abstracts and when this challenge came up I had such a fun weekend setting up props etc. Seems it was worth it. For those who want to know what it is - its an upside spoon in water with a waterdrop on it and the shadows come from a slotted spoon and the colors are from colored cellophane sheets behind the spoon. I did a some burning of some unwanted reflections and a cloned some annoying specks and spots, played with hue and saturation, contrast and brightness, added a border and ran it through neat image.

Good use of negative space. The background matches the foreground well. Not sure what this is but I like it. :) 8

There might be a little too much negative space, but I love the color and the lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent use of colours, and I like the empty space on this one. No idea what it is, meets the challenge very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 12:03:04 AM
Very unique blend. Love the simplicity of the composition. The black top nicely balances the colourful bottom. Very elegant image. Love it.

The colored lines, light & darkness of the photo are just beautiful. I don't know what it is, but it looks like a water drop. 10

Great work, good luck...

I like the colors contrasted with the black. A strong shape fitting to the colors. Real good.

Very clear, very sharp and very abstract.
One of the best submissions in the challenge for me.

Oh wow, I love this!!! The colors are so rich and deep. Awesome work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2004 01:29:45 PM
Interesting composition and wonderful color. You might consider cloning to the right of the drop to make the right side of the image as smooth as the left. You might smudge the top edge of the drop in a couple places to smooth out the jaggies
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice, but I'd lose that border.

05/03/2004 09:18:04 AM
Nice, but get rid of the border.
