Man.. I have never looked so closely at a burnt match. This is an awesome shot with great clarity

Excellent macro! Never would have thought of doing this, and if I had thought of it, I'm sure I wouldn't have executed it as well as you have here. - 10

Very nice. You picked a nice matchstick to use. This was my highest rated photo. I gave it a 10.

I am looking for an interplay of light and surface here. This image has it. The DOF is a little short but the POV is great. The detail is amazing. 7 - good luck in the challenge!

Very neat. I never expected a match head to be glossy. The light makes nice highlights around the holes to help show them.

This is an awesome picture and fits well with the theme! 8

wow - very impressive detail.

Great idea and image. I would have liked more depth of field, but still nice shot.

fantastic macro with great textures

This is original... First matchstick i Saw.

nice!, love them macro lenses

I'd never noticed how textured the end of a match was until this shot. Very cool. Well composed and good DOF. Nice job.

I really like this representation of texture. I would love to see it against a colored background, or possible white. The dark gray does not emphasize the match head as much as it should.

Very, very very, and I mean very good one. Perfect use of a macro to fit in the theme of challenge. Nice control of dof and color.

Great macro! Fits challenge very well! IMHO might change the background to a bright red or orange to really give it more "pop". 7

Great use of lighting!
07/20/2005 09:09:45 AM
lacks balance

Perfecta en cuanto a originalidad y detalle; buen trabajo.

Great macro. Love the light ceating a touch of golden on the match head.

I think the execution of this picture is perfect, but the subject is just not very interesting for me.
