Challenge: Centered Composition IV (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: home
Date: Nov 15, 2009
Aperture: f/14.0
ISO: 50
Shutter: 2.5
Galleries: Still Life, Floral
Date Uploaded: Nov 16, 2009

Pink cardboard, light tent, 3 flashes (1st triggered by wire, 2nd by photocell, 3rd manually, therefore the long exposure). wish i could have cloned out the wrinkles. forgive me the bold frame, I won't post images larger than 720 px unless we get the option for watermarks.

Post challenge: Slightly below my expectations score- and placingwise. Not complaining, though, shooting was another learning experience. But please stop your complaints la "has been done before". Yes, just like every single image here on DPC.

I don't care how many times it's been done, it still works. Very nicely done, congrats on the top 10 finish.

I'm sorry if my comment came across as a complaint. I meant it as a compliment. This is very well done. :-)

I never noticed any wrinkles (except when I look in the mirror ;-)) Lovely shot, Oliver.

It's been done before, but not this well. I really like the complementary blues in the dishes. And it's so perfectly sharp!

Very pretty. Placing the plates at slight angles to each other was a good idea.

There are three predominant colours in this - white, pink & blue. They complement each other well as does the juxtaposition of the mostly square shapes against the soft circularness of the flower. A most pleasing arrangement, very artful.

Very crisp and clear...your blend of colors are a spot-on match. The angles of the dishes add a little interest to take this beyond the standard centered composition.

The little touch of blue is just enough to make the colors seem balanced and not overwhelming.

It looks similar to a previous centered entry but that doesn't change the fact that it's a striking picture. 8

classic (perhaps overdone), technically excellent, great combinations of colors and lighting
