Good idea, but wheres the dead bug? That would have certainly helped.

Nice colors and composition

Flash reflection on the can ruined it for me. Also it seems to tilt to the right on the top.

the right bottom corner is a little distracting.. a plain white background could improve this photo... try dodging it to get it to match with the rest..

Funny!

I think you should have included a dead one in the background.

Very funny. It was nice to come across this and be amused - though not enough for a very high score.

Hehehehe...love the humor (probably will get some "oh this dones't fit the spirit of the challenge" rubbish comments, don't worry about it, I know how you feel.) Rock on!

close - yes
interesting - no
white background is boring.
light glare is distracting.

i kind of wish we could use some of that on this challenge. :) round-up too...

Ok to not have bugs, you still meet the challenge, it is a close up....but not such a fine line between the can and the back ground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2005 05:06:21 AM
Yes!! This challenge requires a full can. Nice to see some creativity. Good luck!

Not the most artistic shot in the world, but I like the humor in it. Have anything to get rid of all the flowers? :)

funny and nice focus

Cute idea given the typical large number of bug entries. Although I'm often a fan of negative space, I find the large detailess are to the right distracting. Maybe color would have helped or better yet a few bug corpses on their back.

Get some flower killer and you'll win for sure ;)

Have to love the humor value of this shot :-) Nice good detail and lighting/exposure as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2005 04:36:11 PM
Hah! Made me laugh! Fun idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2005 03:35:26 PM
Hmm. What is a blowfly and how strong are they? Is this the new superhero? Not quite sure how the photographic representation of the can adds anything to the original piece of art.

Are you one who didn't want bugs in this challenge? ;-) Picture seems ok to me except for that reflexion at the top.

My entry would not like your entry at all. Funny.

The images that always suffer due to lack of comments are the ones that are right in the middle ground. Everyone comments on the awesome shots. Some comment on the bad shots. But the middle ones, very few people say anything. So here I am to explain why I voted a 5:

You get kudos for the humor here. Heaven knows... a lot of the pictures in this challenge could really use some black flag! :-)

Still, I'd hate to vote this one high since it's not really close up or macro. Nor do I want to vote it low because it's still a decent shot. So that's how I ended up voting a 5.

It's a decent shot, but compositionally, there's just nothing strong to hold attention. Even when dealing with 'macros' or 'close shots' -- you can still pay good bit of attention to composition and rule of thirds or leading lines -- just have to get a bit more creative. Anyway...6...good job, but could be better if you spent more time thinking about it.

Not really a macro to me.. The ideia is nice, at least diferent.
You could have used a flash difuser or if you have an of camera flash you could have pointed it to the ceiling, since you have this blown out part on the can...

This is funny. Good luck.

lol. This challenge can use some of this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cans gonna to be empty by the end of this challenge...atleast we can combat the stink of the spray with all the flowers... ; } Kudos for being original!
