O.k., this may end up as my worst score photo - I feel it in my bones, maybe even my first no comment shot but I'm going to take the chance because I love the way it's turned out.
The plastic bottle was a complete mess (scratches, bits of plastic hanging from it). Oh for advanced editing..... ;-)



I'm totally stunned and have been the whole week. I'd never in a million years have guessed that this would do so well.
Thanks for the great comments and votes!

LOVE the lines in this. Did I mention who I want to be when I grow up? (but with a different hair cut).

You are terrific at this - well, terrific in lots of ways. Congrats on an excellent photo -


You'd love the stern guy and he'd love you. So start saving!!

Well you did enter the prettiest looking plastic bottle top of all time so that might have counted for something. Congrats on your honorable mention!

I like the duotone choice, and the use of thirds. Not the most exciting subject, but well lit and post-processed.

Beautiful duotones. Great image and very clear.

very nice macro, the clarity is rather nice here. Nice work overall.

Great coloring with this, it is consistant and not too reflective in the bounce back from the surface. Your choice to go diagonal gives a very eye pleasing line.

This is flawless. Great exposure, beautiful lighting, even background. DOF is spot on too.

THIS is what I want to learn how to do.

Excellent, I like the tone especially.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2007 07:07:39 AM
Great detail, and nice lighting. Normally, I would say not a lot of interest factor in a plastic bottle, but I must say, with the angle, composition, detail and light, you've gotten about every ounce of interest that could even be possible in one. :-)
