I am SO glad this image with lots of noise/grain got a good placement. It was one of my favorites.

Hmm...pretty much out of the box. Interesting picture.

Wonderful image that I wouldn't readily recognize without the title, but acceptably unrecognizable as stationery-with-a-twist. Very pleasing image.

great idea, nice crop but think the color noise detracts from the subtle beauty of the design of the paper. we all know post-its are yellow, why not embrace it and maybe use a contrasting color for the background?

Some green reflection on the background threw me off. You're likely to get reamed up the butt for grain, but I like the effect.

Terrific "WOW" factor!!!

Great lighting and colours. Good luck with this one.

Great pattern but the noise dosen't work for me.

Cool photo.

Well framed, looks much better as a thumbnail due to excessive noise. Grainy could look nice in another photo. Edges of the paper were well done. The greens have turned to blues in portions of the photo, which is distracting. Background would be better if it were darker. That said, nice idea, simple pattern makes a nice photo, I think you're well on your way. Good Job!

Funky shot. The colors and texture (noise or film grain I am guessing) make this stand out well. Has a cool artsy feel to it.

I don't personally like the grain - only reason for 9 instead of 10

Very creative.

Very effective lighting and composition. I've added this one to my favorites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The texture looks almost like grass. I liked this, but I want to know if that's how the post-it notes look, or is that noise generated by the camera.

Excellent work!!! Looks like a winner...

Can't wait to see who was this talented! Great photo.

I like the idea. Did you turn up the Saturation too much? I see some blue pixels towards the top. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2006 07:38:26 PM
One of my favorites. Love the dark green tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2006 04:09:15 PM
I would like it better if it wasn't so grainy. That might be my screen, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this idea. It makes a nice abstract. It looks over sharpened which gives it unnatural texture but the more I look at it, the more I like it. Good job.

Very artistic! 9

Now this I like. Good abstract. 10!

This has great potential but the noise is a bit much.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 08:33:01 PM
Very arty. Eye-catching.

It's a shame the top post-it note was cropped off just slightly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful! Lovely forms, tones, and textures. Well done, indeed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

beautifully placed
color, focus and lighting are wonderful.

Good job on the post processing to give the paper noise as it now looks like the texture of leaves. Creative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 02:05:39 PM
