I'd have tried to back these with a neutral color--white, gray, or blacl--to make the colors of the subjects stand out better.

Lighting is too harsh

Good Lighting

The lighting is pretty harsh in this, and it looks like you used a really high ISO - the noise in it really detracts from the colors of the peppers.

good shot, i like it, looks like you turned up the green a little, it stoll from the color of the others,

I like this shot. A nice and sharp picture. Nice colors. The picture has a nice vibrant look to it.

Finally....someone who saw genus as the way to go. Nice and crisp and lovely composition.

I would have liked to see more vivid colors. Could be my monitor though. But they appear a little washed out.
07/12/2005 12:02:17 PM
yes yes, my first nine.
07/12/2005 02:04:53 AM
the color is so bright
07/11/2005 10:59:23 PM
good portrait and good colors. like the reflection.
07/11/2005 08:29:43 PM
Good idea, focus seems a little soft though.
07/11/2005 05:51:05 PM
The light is a little harsh for me, but otherwise nice shot
07/11/2005 02:07:11 PM
Nice photo - composition and focus are real nice. I even like the reflection. BUT - where is the concept of family? The fact that they are all peppers? Sorry, just fell short even for an OOTB shot, IMO.

The lighting is too bright, causing hotspots on each one. Also the "Family" reference is a bit of a stretch here.

Very interesting and creative.
07/11/2005 06:35:15 AM
Super idea.
07/11/2005 05:44:05 AM
Would have shot this on a white background in high key one pepper in font pin sharp the others way back out of focus apature about F2.8 that would be impact and a ribbon this is just a nice arrangement 5

very nice colorful picture of peppers - not sure if I would consider them a family - but nice photo. The mirrored image helps you here. On a minus - the focus is too soft. On an image like this sharpness and strong focus work better in my opinion.

And here we have the pepper family! Nice picture-over saturated just a tad for my taste. Fits the theme-very creative!
07/11/2005 12:53:21 AM
a bit heavy on the green i think.
07/11/2005 12:17:17 AM
Cool coloration! I like them sitting on a mirror. Maybe just a tad overexposed but A for originality!
