you may not like the sky but i would never had thought to use cotton. this one is very creative and is a good reminder that vegetables are good for the body AND mind. That reminds me, i need to go fresh food shopping...

This was one of my highest scores in this challenge. It deserved to be on the top three IMO.
Grats on 5th place

Wow. Incredible amount of effort here. Very cool set up. Agree with 21.gif bassbone about using popcorn for the clouds would have kept in the food theme. either way it is pretty damn cool.

Judi - wonderful image and great delivery. I see you weren't happy with the sky...How about popcorn for the clouds in the sky?

Nothing wrong with the sky, I thought it was a delightful addition. I am totally surprised this didn't ribbon though. It's pretty much the only landscape with any 'real' depth to it. Congrats on 5th all the same!

This is the absolutely most adorable little scene in this challenge. I thought for sure you would place in the top 3.
Great image!

Just GREAT. I guess you have a lot of free time. :-0

10 !!

Wow, just fantastic! This must have taken you ages to set up. At the top for me, the color, comp and creativity are out of this world!

Very detailed love the shot

04/14/2008 09:16:16 AM
the overall sharpness of your image makes it stand out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2008 09:54:02 AM
Very well composed -- a lot of imagination went into this. Great colors and theme too. Better DOF would have really helped.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2008 10:02:48 PM
This is a cool one. Good idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2008 05:24:35 PM
very whimsical

The colors in this photo really pop. The way the road is done makes it appear to go on for a far distance.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2008 09:47:20 PM
Lots of good colour and who had fun making this then?
Brilliant detail and I will give you a 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i like this photo. it must have taken you a long time to complete.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2008 09:25:06 AM
Great detail and set up; fantastic image, especially knowing that it was created in under a week. The slight oof in the foreground detracts just a tiny bit, which is the only reason its a 9 instead of a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2008 01:47:32 AM
Wowzers.... I'd be very surprised if this didn't ribbon. Absolutely fantastic scene. Good light, colour, dof and superb creativity (not to mention patience!) putting this together.

i see blue in the future of this photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2008 04:43:24 PM
beautiful colouring, love all of the clever ingredients you've used.

This had better ribbon or I'm sending my $25 back ;-)

10 and favourited.

Nice work. Wonderful colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2008 11:30:37 AM
wow, the colors, DOF, sharpness, EVERYTHING is great!! One suggestion would be to spend a little more time on your clouds, everything else is so perfect that the chunky clouds don't really fit....either way a 10 from me!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2008 08:51:46 AM
You went to a lot of trouble to make this shot. I am impressed with you. Well done 10 came back to add. everytime i look at this shot, i see more and more. I thought that the path was carrots, now I see them as lentils. I live your hay stacks. You really did so well I wish i could give you more than 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 10:44:08 PM
I'm.... not sure... where is Puss in boots? The lentils give a nice colour lift to this... Not sure if the sky works though...

Very cartoonish.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 09:57:52 PM
It has alot of 3D depth, Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 05:57:04 PM
Fatastic effort, clearly a lot of work has gone into this and it shows. If I'm going to nit-pick, the focus isn't sharp throughout the depth of the scene which lessens the overall impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 02:49:41 PM
You put a lot of work into this, great job (love that ladder). A colourful fun photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 01:23:56 PM
Lol - great colors and use of textures. I didn't think of Puss-n-Boots, but of Hobbits and Frodo. Very, very cute. One of my top favorites in the challenge. Good luck!

great set, very lively, I'd just love to see a Shrek or Donkey here to bring the message home (pun not intended.)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 11:55:42 AM
I love everything about this except for the gross background, sorry but those cotton balls look more like used tissues. Besides that everything is outstanding and i can't bring myself to lower your score for the sky that looks like an afterthought.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 08:47:09 AM
Fantastic effort. Really well done, nice composition. Nice saturation & DOF..8

Bumping up to 9!

excellent, just what we want to see
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 05:16:27 AM
very well modeled (except for the clouds). a bit too wide-angled, the distortion and softness at the edges distract
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 05:11:37 AM
Creative and very attractive! Good work!!!
