It seems to clearer at the base than it is on the globe

I really like the title on this picture. The globe seems a little blurry, but it might be the globe itself. I would have liked to see the entire shadow.

Nice shot. Nice DOF. Wonder what the globe against a map might look like.

i like the idea. But the background and composition could be better...

A good title, nice idea. Did you try other backgrounds such as black or blue?

Makes me think the Earth is a small place indeed.

I like the way the colours on the floor act as a pastel version of the colours in the globe. I also like the way that you used the glare from the light to act as the sun, as the title suggests. It would be interesting to see this done with the lights off and using a torch as a light source to take it to the extreme level. The only negative comment I have is that the tag that's hanging off the globe detracts a bit from the image. Good Luck with the challenge.

I like the globe, and its obviously a miniature, but maybe if you had sat it on a map it may have looked more appropriate to the challenge.

I think it would be better if you could have taken the tag off.

Good focus on the model, except for some areas toward the northwest end of Africa - but I think it is due to the competing stonework in the model. Not so much your fault. I would have used a different pattern to set the model on. The bumps in the tabletop pattern are a bit distracting.

is the price tag still on that?
08/04/2004 10:19:02 PM
plastic tag clips are easy to associate size with, but I think you could have done something that would work with the image a bit better.

Very nice focus and lighting. Honestly, not a lot of "interest" for me. I think I would have cut off the little cord, also.

I don't think this meets the requirements for the assignment.

Simple but creative.
