Congrats on your top ten finish!
Out of the "message in a bottle" entries...this stood out by such a large margin in my mind.
Excellent interpretation. Your image is wonderful. Focus, perspective, exposure...all combine for a well deserved top ten finish.
Again congrats....I'm sure more top ten finishes and ribbons lie in the future for you!!!!

Beautiful color and focus, interesting low angle. The seaweed is a nice touch. 9

Just love this picture. The angle, (guess someone got wet getting this shot :-) . Alos you can't get a better background for a picture than an ocean. Great job, nice focus on the bottle and the paper inside.

Great concept, but seaweed is distracting.

Good point of view, but the reflections hide the actual message.

Nice shot. Like the perspective. The sun spots on the bottle detract from the overall image for me. Maybe taking the shot later in the day or at sunset would have added to the appeal of this shot.

Good shot. Maybe a little less bottle and more sand and water?

The best "message in a bottle" one I have seen yet. Nice job with the angle and DOF!

I really like this. The ocean in the background sets a really tropical-like mood :)

very original take on the subject and i think well visualised and taken its a 9 Could have been a 10 with more depth of field and total sharpness throughout.

:) very clean bottle... but quality is good.
10/13/2004 01:49:46 PM
nice shot. I would have chosen a different angle and taken away the seaweed, it distracts from the subject. imho
10/13/2004 01:28:21 PM
