OUCH. Hot wax. :(

Took about 60 shots once I realized that I liked this. It used to have a wax stamp in it, but I thought it was too cluttered. Having a go at the hot whites here.

Just checking out all of my higher scores. This one should have done better, I feel. Really unique and pleasant image.

I liked the high keyness. Like the idea of a tighter crop on it too. :)

Unique and fun idea. Colors could be more saturated, but great composition.

Oh, wow. I LOVE wax seals. That's gorgeous, and it does hit the topic well.

This is an interesting image but the lighting needs some work. I feel it should be more diffuse and centered so that the paper edge on the right is not so pronounced and distracting. The two paper edges should both be visible but soft. The details in the logo would also benefit from softer lighting. -T

meets the challenge and is quite well composed. The light/ exposure seems a bit off however.

A little over exposed, I think.

tough shot to expose... maybe a macro of just the seal and some of the leaf artwork would have been a stronger image... = 5

Nothing seems to be completely in focus, unfortunately
