Good. Nice use of extremely shallow DOF. Nice how this all fades into white.
Good luck Sonja.

Interesting shot. Very artsy, it looks like a painting. I could easily see this hanging in a gallery.

Cool effect and nice pastel coloring. I'm not quite sure how you achieved this - who knows, maybe its a Macro V outtake, but the overall feel is light and playful. So, good on you.

Great colors and I like the high key treatment. Even the blue border works for me.

cool

I really like the muted colors here. Another example of simple household objects turned into art. I really like your choice of border too. Good job...I hope you are scoring well.

My favorite straw pic so far...but then again I am only half way throuogh the images...stilll this is quite nice...pretty soft colors and light...just kinda makes my happy...I'm not usually a fan of borders and such...but Ireally do like that thin aqua line...it's complimentary and not overpowering...nicely done.

Interesting idea but a tad too bright
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 09:39:06 AM
simply artistic! I was trying for something with straws but just couldn't work it out. Now I'm all jealous coz this deserves nothing less than a ten. adore it!

This seems blown out to me... it's just beyond white and almost hurting my eyes. I like the concept though... no question it meets the challenge - I'd just prefer this to have more contrast and less brightness.

I like the color, this is a nice shot.

Great use of light. This is really a fun picture. The frame is perfect for it too.
