I'm bugged immediately by the border on this. If it were solid, I think I'd be happier. I do, however, love the subject with its textures and variations and I think it's a lovely, subtle way to meet the challenge topic.

i really like this, it's pretty and original

very nice abstract from a natural scene

This image is pretty hard to figure out and the frame is much to bulky for my opinion.

Border was way too big and image detail lacking a lot of clarity.
Interesting composition though. Not sure what the kiss was.

The frame doesn't do this image any favors IMO
05/17/2004 03:09:41 PM
I don't like the frame, too big! THe photo is ok, I like it, but the frame...

Border is smart...But i cant recognize the items on the grouns..Are the leaf?

Different. I think the pic would have more impact if the shadows were darker/smoother or if the view were up much closer, maybe crop it down to just about the center 30%. Your border is ok, but I think more effort on the pic would be more effective. 7

It looks really good with the border.

This photo gives me a nice feeling. One of my top picks.

lovely capture - although frame first appears rubbish it does give fantastic effect of looking down in 3D

This is a pictire that grows on you. I actually like it, even with the border!

Very nice. The best picture portraying lights and shadows I have seen in this challenge until now.
05/13/2004 02:24:38 PM
Really neat photo, but I'm not sure I'm feeling it for the challenge. Nice job though!

It appears to me that the frame is more important than the image. It appears a little flat - I think it would help to adjust the levels in photoshop.

very creative idea. nice image.

Wow! I love this image. Great abstract. Certainly a gem that deserves a wall for hanging. Good use of light to make the image real shine.
05/12/2004 09:19:45 PM
lovely lighting!
05/12/2004 07:32:45 PM
No, doubt this is pretty. I personally love shaddows.
This could of been improved with less of a heavy frame......<too chunky>! also the light area at the bottom is really hot.
Maybe crop it a different way. Good luck in the challenge.

very trippy... i like the blending of the light and shadow. -10

The fallen petals on the grass form a nicely colored mural for the tree shadows to play. I like the focus and point of view. The frame seems an integral part of this picture as if it were a window through which this scene was viewed by the camera. I just covered it with my hands and I think I like the picture better without.

A 7.

Lovely! I like the pattern made by the shadows. Great composition. Though I can't say I like the borders... they're too thick (and too gray, too) and takes away the attention.

Good effort.
