One Egg on top of a black table, used a black bookshelf layer behind the egg.

For lighting, i used a neutral daylight desklamp with my midterm covering it for diffused light. (about 45 degree angle)

on the other side, i took a folded sheet of paper and balanced out the shadows while the MLU was activated. out of about, 20 shots or so, this one came out the most reasonable. I underexposed by a 1 stop I think

very nice...simplistic!
08/29/2005 10:09:45 PM
Good minimalist capture, good color and contrast too.

I like the photo... but not entirely sure how eggs relate to dairy since they do not come from a cow.
08/28/2005 08:48:06 PM
I like the black and white feel but are eggs dairy?..
08/28/2005 12:02:00 PM
I like this a lot. Very elegant looking.
08/28/2005 09:25:48 AM
What has this got to do with dairy?
08/28/2005 02:46:49 AM
that's gotta be one funny looking cow
08/27/2005 08:50:55 PM
Simple and nice!
08/27/2005 01:47:46 PM
I like the picture but wrong challenge??
08/27/2005 12:07:52 AM
nice egg
08/26/2005 11:33:20 PM
The top of the egg seems overexposed
08/26/2005 08:17:05 PM
08/26/2005 06:29:15 PM
um, eggs aren't dairy. Sure you got that alot already. This needs more sharpness and texture, lighting is good.

Fit Challenge Criteria: 2/2
Contrast/Color: 1/2
Composition: 2/2
Photo Quality: 1/2
My Subjective Affinity: 1/2

I really like the idea, but the presentation appears somewhat poor. On my screen, only the very center of the egg has any detail. The top is completely blown out.

Isn't an egg considered as "meat"?
I don't think it meets the "dairy" food cathegory, if I can put it this way.
08/26/2005 01:19:35 PM
I repeat the last comment you got :)
08/26/2005 10:57:58 AM
nice pic but off topic

Eggs aren't dairy. Nice lighting, though.
08/26/2005 12:31:59 AM
Nice lighting. Seems a tad OOF as I would have liked to see more of the texture of the egg in this close-up.
08/25/2005 11:16:40 PM
nice photo -
08/25/2005 10:15:43 PM
since when is milk considered dairy? nice shot except no relation to the challenge.
08/25/2005 09:45:46 PM
nice lighting. Are eggs dairy? I'll have to research that one. I like this shot.
08/25/2005 09:42:05 PM
good egg shot. the focus seems a little soft, and there's a blown-out spot that bothers me. overall, nice image. eggs aren't dairy, by the way.
08/25/2005 08:52:12 PM
Eggs do not really relate to the dairy anf it is too boring because it is just black and white.
08/25/2005 08:31:35 PM
08/25/2005 08:10:44 PM
the shadow is nice, with the shading of white down to grey to black. and the backgraound is cool yo but dude this is an egg

08/25/2005 08:06:33 PM
Eggs don't have anything to do with dairy
08/25/2005 08:06:02 PM
Nice try..but eggs aren't dairy-related.
08/25/2005 08:03:09 PM
I hope you dont get penalized TOO badly for this not being officially a dairy product, because this is a really good photo.
08/25/2005 03:30:41 PM
eggs are poultry not dairy. nice pic though
08/25/2005 02:57:13 PM
Milk? Not sure if an egg would be considered a milk product. Neat picture though.
08/25/2005 01:12:06 AM
The lighting doesn't work for me here. The top looks blown out on my monitor, and the bottom is very dark. I would try softer lighting next time.
08/24/2005 11:19:26 PM
Did I miss something...how is this dairy? Focus is soft...voted low because it does not meet the challenge...unless a cow laid this egg!
08/24/2005 08:55:38 PM
It's been done before but I guess there is always the challenge of duplicating the look.
08/24/2005 07:25:14 PM
Great lighting. It's an egg, right? Good luck! It might be a bit too off challenge for some.
08/24/2005 06:40:52 PM
Eggs don't moo!
08/24/2005 04:16:19 PM
Nice close up. I'd like more negative on one side. But I thought dairy as milk??? Hmmmmm
08/24/2005 04:16:18 PM
uhm nice picture. but dairy?
08/24/2005 03:16:28 PM
Beautiful image, well composed and captured ... but sidesteps the challenge theme.
08/24/2005 02:32:21 PM
is an egg dairy? Maybe..
08/24/2005 01:04:37 PM
This is a good shot for eggs but the challenge was Dairy.
08/24/2005 12:19:04 PM
What part of the Cow did that come from?
08/24/2005 09:03:51 AM
Thank you so much for centreing the egg. 10
08/24/2005 08:36:36 AM
Where is the dairy?
08/24/2005 05:54:10 AM
Well shot, off topic.
08/24/2005 04:29:53 AM

08/24/2005 01:27:42 AM
Good shot!
08/24/2005 12:56:25 AM

08/24/2005 12:31:03 AM
