Challenge: Triptych (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Olympus C-5050Z
Location: my coffee table
Date: Nov 7, 2005
Aperture: F8
ISO: 64
Shutter: varied for each shot
Galleries: Still Life, Diptych / Triptych
Date Uploaded: Nov 11, 2005

I had something else in mind for this challenge, but didn't have time to shoot it. So I decided to go with this simple idea.

Let's see how many people are bothered by the fact that the green apple is too close to the red apple. It bothers me, but I've already eaten all of my subjects, and I'm pretty sure the editing required to "extend" the background a bit would be allowed in this challenge. So I'm sticking with what I've got.

Photoshop:
-Cropped
-Separate levels adjustment on each apple (3 different pics)
-A little minor color adjustment on the red and green apples
- Created the "frame" to make this a triptych

The varying color backgrounds is going to take away from this image

I would have tried to get the light the same in all 3 shots...but not bad.

technically this has a lot of room for improvement... some things to consider -
- reducing the glare on the apple (soften the light source by putting a white bed sheet in the path of the light to diffuse it)
- remove the cast shadows (again this is a lighten problem, diffusing the light will help)
- brighten up the colors (can be done in post processing, lots and lots of ways to do it)
- inconsistent backdrops (it is white on the left side of the middle panel but warm grey elsewhere... for these type of shots a clean white backdrop is usually best)

Hope you dont take my comments the wrong way, just trying to be helpful and constructive.

good shots, i think i would rather have the apples the same size, but that just might be me

An interesting idea. A whiter background and a bit more contrast would have helped boost the image.

the color balance being off hurts on the backround hurts the group

4 - Nice and 'soft', coloring and 'focus'. Criticism; whilst I think the frame color suits the background colors I am not sure it suits the subjects. Overall, while nice and 'clean', this lacks 'something' in my opinion, maybe just a richer coloring or uniform crop, may have made it better, not sure.

i think consistency in the white background between these 3 pictures could have improved this one. nice pictures and nice idea.

One of the few cases where a non-black or non-white border works. Great job.
