Wow, I'm thrilled with this result (especially after last week, that entry sucked, lol!).

For those of you who commented that this photo is kinda busy.... well, yes it is. But I debated entering some close-ups of the detail and figured they would be slammed as boring. And basically the essence of Chihuly's work IS that it invites to you in to visually wander around, and I think this photo captures that feeling. Amazingly, this is the first shot I took of this display, the others were not nearly as good. I only bumped up the saturation and brightness/contrast a little.

Love all the colors and shapes here.
07/03/2006 02:55:50 AM
How lovely!
07/03/2006 12:54:34 AM
All the detail here is very clear and crisp - focus, contrast, everything is spot-on.

But there's just too much happening for my taste. If there was one central feature that stood out, which the others complemented and led your eye towards, then it would be great. But as it stands, they're all competing with one another.

The choices of color is amazing. From deep purple to bright yellow.

Good capture of the ceiling. I have seen it in person and you really have captured its essence.

This is cool! Is there a way to make the colors 'pop' just a little more?

I wanted to do a Chihuly, but all the exhibits are too far. They're wonderful, though, aren't they!
06/28/2006 07:57:01 AM
Awesome. Very rich. Should score really high.
I predict a ribbon.
