Hi from the Critique Club.

This is a difficult one for me to critique because I know it's a ribbon winner, but it was really not among my favorites.

I think probably for me, the thing that most detracted from the photo was that there is so much going on. When I crop it to simply the oranges (and baskets) below that large chrome strip, I like it much better. The lighting and composition appear more snap-shotish to me.

I think the subject, the way all these oranges are laid out so nicely together, somehow could have made more impact. Maybe if the lighting was a little brighter or more interesting. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I would have come in closer to the oranges and left out all the upper part of the photo.

It seems I'm in the minority on this one and that's okay! I hope you find the comments helpful and congratulations on your ribbon!

Judy

Fantastic shot. Great composition. You did a great job of "seeing photographically" while you were out at the mall. Congratulations on your ribbon, it's well deserved!

Thanks for all the comments!
I wanted to do another image. Was at a shopping center, and wanted to photograph something like a wall of TV's. Got a good image of a lady standing in front of a shoe store, then I saw this orange display at a fresh juice store. The colour & layout caught my eye, so I shot off a few images. They all came out OK.
I had to do a 0,8 degree rotation, crop, and increased the saturation a little to bring out the orange colour. Sharpened, resized, framed & Bingo!

Top three, just a great shot. Im sure you will get comments that it doesn't fit the challenge, but IMHO it does quite well and it creates an arresting shot with great geometry.

The anti-choice!

Nicely done. The mirrors give the impression of an infinity of the oranges.

Great idea! My only problem with your image is that it includes too much.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

like the effect the mirrors have

I love the sense of abundance created by this image. The baskets brake up the image really well and a bit of life.

Cool! I would have cropped off a bit more at the top, just to get that line of chrome farther from the center, but it is still very cool.
