Challenge
- Relevant to the Challenge? Oddly and compelingly I'd have to say, "Yes."
- Is subject unique (vs. unoriginal or rehashed)? Yes

Compostion
- Good or Bad? How can it be fixed? Okay the thing that bugs me about the composition is that the other limb is directly behind the focal point. It... It... I'm at a loss to describe what feels wrong about it. The background is awsomely done though.
- Good use of Depth of Field? Yes You did a good job of making the background go out-of-focus.
- Good focus? Yes

Lighting
- Good use of light? Yes

Aesthetics/Artistic Appeal:
- Colors and Contrast The colors are nice, vibrant even, and the contrasting of the light green leaves and the dark green background is perfect. THAT'S IT. That's the compositional issue. The contrast pulls the eye from the focus of the lime buds.
- What is my reaction or feelings? It's a well done photo, but is a little busy, in my opinion. It's outside the box, which I like, but others didn't seem to appreciate it inside the challenge.

Good job on the 6.1.

not sure of how well this meets the challenge, not as much effort as some of the other entries, great macro, DOF and use of natural light - love the water drops - nice work :)

These really don't look like a lime to me, but the picture is great

Nice colors, good composition, good use of shallow DOF and generally decent technical quality. The only thing lacking in this image is a high interest eye catching item such as having a very large water drop that inverse reflects withini it the lime on the branch in the back.

Beautiful pic, wonderful colors and dof. May suffer for those looking for a literal recipe. But I will look at it as a "before" you cut them up and put them into a drink :-)

Bah, mine are still green.
Beautiful shot though!

I always thought limes were green. Maybe they're orange when young and turn green; oranges go the opposite way.

I fail to see how this represents a recipe

01/15/2006 04:19:16 PM
Beautiful picture but I would think we should have turned these one a bit into some recipe situation;-)

Good photo, don't quite see how it fits the theme though....

Doesn't seem to be "prepairing a dish from a recipie to me" but a need picture regardless.

beautiful use of dof

Thus is a very nice image indeed. Well exposed, well composed, good use of DOF.
Too bad it does not portray the idea of recipe at all. Sorry.

I don't think this one meets the challenge, but it looks very good.
