Challenge: Blue (Classic Editing)
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 990
Location: Houston
Date: Nov 26, 2002
Aperture: 4.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/1.4
Date Uploaded: Dec 1, 2002

I froze a pan of water with some blue food coloring in it and placed this beetle on the ice for the photo. The beetle is interesting because it is different colors depending on the angle that you look at it. To me the beetle looked almost greenish/yellow but the 990 saw it as this gold color.

...and the sky may look blue. i bet no one else got that one, but now i have to listen to the wall and it's all your fault. anyways. the near complimentary colors are beautiful. the almost-rule-of-thirds is good. not sure about the subject of a bug for the song, but the picture works with the title, so... ah what the hell. 10.

Nice tones and color contrast. Composition could be improved. would make a nice square image with the beetle at the same distance to the left that it is to the top.

WOW! Where did you find a beetle like that this time of year? Love the reflection. My favourite so far for this competition! One of my very rare 10s.

A golden SCARAB. Very cool. Not crazy for the shadow or the surface but the beatle is nice. Neat shot. Justine
