So many great pictures, its hard to choose which one to comment on. :) I like this one though. It feels romantic. I can picture myself writing and daydreaming. Great tone.

First of all; let me say that I checked out your portfolio when this challenge was over and was thoroughly impressed with your success right out of the gate. It's obvious that you are very talented; and I predict that you are going to continue submitting unusual and interesting images for our enjoyment.

The first thing that struck me about this image was how the title enhances it. The "diary" is animated, and indeed, appears to be flying. On it's own, it might not be that captivating; however, the sunrise in BG and reflecting from the pages really adds the color and warmth that makes this image "pop". DOF, focus...everything is spot-on.

If I had to think of a nitpick, I guess it would be the finger at the left. Honestly though, I didn't even see it until I had been looking for a very long time.

Excellent work. And congratulations on your ribbon! I'm envious:)

This image was indeed one of the best ones I saw, but I would really like to know how you ended up getting a shadow on the sunset?

Great shot; good placement; well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2006 05:53:50 AM
Nice! Excellent idea to use the flashes to cause the "ghosting" or movement in the pages, that is definately the finishing touch here or the "wow" factor everyone talks so much about. Congrats!

Great shot - work of art!

Trying to leave some more in depth comments on random photos, so here goes...

I like the unique perspective here, its much more interesting than a typical still shot of a diary with pen. The soft colors and reflections of color in the pages are wonderful. The movement of the pages is interesting, the pages are well focused with just a little bit of the movement being apparent, which unexpected, but nice. Suggestions for improvement? Maybe a slight crop to get rid of some of the dark colors on the bottom and right? I think you pulled this together very nicely. Well done and good luck!

Very nice background choice. I like the sun light between pages.

An interesting photo, with edgy elements, but not stationery for me.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2006 03:54:59 PM
I'll be astonished if you don't get a ribbon for this...simply outstanding!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2006 10:49:25 PM
Very nice background. Might have tried moving the diary to the left and cropping so the edge of your monitor isn't visible.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2006 09:18:22 AM
I can almost see the pages blowing in the wind. The sunset coming through the pages is very effective and well executed. The wall or window frame at behind the right side of the diary is distracting and doesn't help the compostion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2006 07:34:44 PM
Really nice colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2006 07:01:22 PM
This would be nicer if the bottom of the image didn't look like mud or something.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2006 09:33:36 AM
This looks awesome
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2006 08:00:07 AM
Nice illusion... too bad about the shadows... I actually started to believe it for a minute! You matched the light extremely well... that stuff on the right with the door frame or whatever it is detracts as well...

At first glance, I thought this might have the elements of a top 10... Looking closer pulls some of the lustre off of it... sorry.

Great view of the book. Only problem for me is the dark frame(?) in the right background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 02:04:14 PM
