Hi Louison and * Greetings from the Critique Club *

For some reason the "Three's" challenge was full of very strong entries. You should feel very good with your finish and the fact that you seemed to have won "the challenge of the eggs."

Now lets dig into your three eggs. Technically it is perfection:

Exposure: Excellent - even with a very difficult challenge for your meter(s).

Composition: Don't see how it could be any better.

Focus: Perfect.

Other: The is a very slight band of gray about 1/2 the distance from the top to the eggs. Image would be a bit stronger without it.

The left egg merges into the background at the top. Slightly different positioning of the reflected light should fix.

Title: Not really a part of the image - but too subtle. The way the eggs are positioned, I see something like "Will you marry me?" or "Two's company, three's a crowd."

Just my ideas - and really hard to give much in the way of improvement when the image is so strong already.

You win the mini-contest of the three white eggs. It amazing how closely the two images resemble each other! I like the way you made 2 of your eggs "friends." Nice even lighting - good exposure.

Looks like the middle one favors the cute chick on the right. Nice composition and exposure. I want to love it, but I keep thinking, "It's just three eggs." I wish there was some little dash of color or spark of interest. Maybe some of those naturally-colored green and brown eggs?

I like the simplicity and composition of your picture. One of my favorites.

clean, well done image. has great (I think anyway) potential for stock. one egg leans away... makes it more dynamic.

I think this shot might have benefitted from some color or other contrast.

Cool picture. Well taken.

Three egg omelet! Cool ... I may be wrong here but in my monitor, there is no boundary between the background and the top ... maybe just a tad of contrast in the area and also in the shadows. But I love the composition, the ideas that the composition represent and the simplicity of it all. White on white always appeals to me.
