My dream ... to have three 1 Gigabyte Microdrives.
3.4 x zoom and manually focused. Camera on my tripod, shutter activated with
remote control. Used a banker's lamp (60watts) for lighting. The picture
actually consists of one 1GB Microdrive (borrowed from a friend), one 8MB
Compact Flash (CF)card and one 32MB CF card. I raised the cards on four $.25
pieces, creating the drop shadow. I over exposed 1 1/3 EV since the scene was
too grey and brightened it up in PSP to make the background completely white (I
hope). Also used unsharp mask to make it bit more crisp. Might not be the winner
this week, I'm sure a lot of people might find it boring/cliche, but I'm happy I
was able to make a photo that was exactly how I had imagined it.

I am impressed by the very commercial quality of this image (it's a complement). Raising the subject and creating a shadow is execlently executed, as well as, the colour and tonal range presented (especially the perfectly white, yet a bit graining background). Overall and impressive effort, which makes you appreciate simple composition and good technical knowledge, congratulations.

I want some of those but I heard that they are slow. I like the floating effect.

nice idea to elevate the cards to create the shadow... nicely done! what did you use? styrofome or something?

I really like the floating effect you have here. This is a great picture. The white background really emphasizes the shadow, and enhances that effect. Good focus and colors, as well. There seems to be a slight light blare on the closest edges of the cards, and though it doesn't distract terribly from the picture, it might be helped by using a softer light, or diffusing the light that you have (however, that might render your shadow less effective as well.) Nice work. karmat

cool effect. strange title... memory should never "envy" hard drives no matter what capacity of them. memory speed will always be faster than a physical hd. memory speeds reach upwards of 4GB/swhere hd can only acheive a max of 100Mb/s... great picture though.... 8

Why turn them upside down? I don't understand. Good shot, good focus, meets challenge, good color, great background. Good techs. Lacks "wow" and pizzaz to make it an 8 or above. But overall good pic. PTL

A great simple shot. I really like the way you've levitated the cards.

I think this would have better with the label the right way round. Nice shadow and hovering effect.

Great shot. This is in the upper class. LOL

The floating of the subject is very cool! A nice switch from the norm.

Very nice picture and focus. I liked how you raised them all to floating status. Should've cleaned the tiny distracting specs to make this better.

I LIKE THE HOVER EFFECT

It's floating! The labels should at the very least be facing the right way
11/18/2002 04:55:00 AM
Wouldn't 'Money Envy' be just as appropriate?

Nice floating effect, good lighting, love the shadow. The image could have been a little smoother though, seems a little rough, could be in the focus, or maybe just overall picture quality.
