Challenge: Complementary Colors III (Basic Editing III)
Collection: Challenge Photographs
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: Virginia Beach, VA
Date: Apr 23, 2006
Aperture: f/5.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/200
Date Uploaded: Apr 23, 2006

Taken on white construction paper w/ sunlight and a flash bouncing off the ceiling.

I wanted to play more with the idea, but it turns out M&Ms melt extremely fast when sitting in milk.

I tried to reduce the glare by retaking the shot in direct sunlight, but the M&Ms just melted quicker and I didn't have a chance to really compose the shot.

I liked it. Very nice contrasting colors, and a neat high-key" feel. And I am sure that mile tastes better than Elmer's glue.

Next time, you might want to try using white elmers glue instead of milk.

My husband would whole-heartedly agree! Good idea. I might have cropped out a tad more of the white space at the bottom and top of the shot but the way you have it definitely works.

I thought of the M&M idea too, the lighting is a little flat.

Orange and Blue are Ok but background is dominating the area. More over pills need crisp focus.

Nice take on the challenge topic. Good lighting but the light on the blue M&M is a touch hard. You probably couldn't move the light but you might try moving the M&M.

Too cute and if only it really was:) 9

Nice idea.
Tighter crop on the dish imo would have been better. Turn the milk container around or just skip it.
Focus fine on subject but there is a bit too much light on one of the MMs in the spoon.

Love M&M's! Cool with the shallow DOF, but I wish I could read what is on the plastic bottle, although not too problematic :)

4 - The 'orange' ones seem 'off'. Composition is good. Just like to see the colors stronger/more dominant.

...if you want to die prematurely!!! I am sure some people have m and m's for breakfast!

The shot is good. I like the composition and the focus point...would have liked a closer shot of that spoon though
