thrilled beyond belief by the red!! I've always admired people like ajhopp that can create a stife life like the old masters. I went to the grocery store to see what I should get with two colors, and I found the pears. I was so pleased with how this turned out, and incredibly excited throughout the week that others liked it as well.

Thanks so much!

Heyyy Wendy - look at you! :) Beautiful work, and you know I adore the subject matter. I haven't entered anything on DPC for a while, but I happened to stop in and couldn't help but notice your winner. Big congrats on the red and thanks so much for the mention...

i think the fact that this, low-key, simply set up picture of fruit shoots down anything people say about what kind of shots ribbon here, nice work.

This was so nicely done that I gave it a 10. Not that you're not capable of such a shot, but I would never in a million years guessed that this was yours. :D Congrats on the ribbon.

Congratulations Wendy, magnificent photo!

03/14/2011 01:45:06 PM
Congrats Wendy!! I was wondering how you got the lighting setup to be so soft and muted. Not the bright hot-spots I get when I try flash. Think you could add a line or two on the setup for this one?

I am very happy Wendy for your ribbon! A perfect little painting that IS A PHOTO - HUGE quality because I don't want to combine the two mediums to a point of total fake.

They don't come any purer than this, compositionally. Or lighting-wise. The stems alone are worth the price of admission to study. 9 from me.

This is my pick for the 'Blue'...

Subtle and well done. In general, just slightly underexposed on my monitor, but it is a very nice SL.
