Simple yet elegant. There was another fortune cookie - but yours leaves it in the dust. Things that are perfect: lighting, lighting, choice of colors, composition, lighting, dark background, and of course, lighting. Not quite perfect, but close: The top edge of the back part of the cookie is a tad soft - another f-stop or two would have been better. You should finish way up there.

I hope that turns out to be a good fortune! Very nice lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/15/2004 04:59:55 AM
Nice idea and very nice lighting. The cookie is not very clear unfortunately. Maybe a ring would have made more impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice surprise. Did she/he say yes? Nice photo. The crumbs make it look real. I like the lighting.

Lovely idea. I hope it's real and that somebody is very happy right now. Good job.

Nice idea... I always love the fortune cookie entries. Wish the colors had been a bit brighter and happier to fit the theme, but still, nice job!

Good ompact. Right to the point.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I LIKE the idea for this
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2004 09:34:08 AM
Cute idea, nicely done pic, too bad so many people did the fortune cookie. I think the proposal sets you apart (and it made a great hint for my boyfriend for romantic ideas in the future!). A little blur along the top right edge of the cookie, maybe a DOF issue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2004 04:22:39 AM
It's a surprising idea, well executed but I think more light would have suited the message better. There's so much drama in it now, whereas is should be light and happy. still a 7

Wonderful, wonderful composition? Lighting is good as well. I somehow like the fact that photo is off-centered.
