Nice composition and idea. My only suggestion would have been to frame it so that the egg was just a touch further up and to the right just a smidgen. It feels a little close to the edge for me. karmat

love the sepia. the egg crate look like mountains....super detail.

I like this very much. I give it a 10. I like the lighting and shadowing and especially the contrasting textures, also the lines and the slight silvery look. Great Job!!!!

The black and white leaves the crate looking really metallic, which is the opposite of what it is. Egg texture is great. I give you 5 for texture, 3 for my personal overall impression. 8 nards656

This is a great idea. I love all the textures of the carton and the lighting is great...the shadows really enhance the photo. Even the texture on the egg can be seen. Great job. 8 kdjohnson

Great lighting gives it a dramatic flair.. this is a really cool shot.
07/24/2002 12:40:00 PM
The egg is overexposed.
07/24/2002 11:08:00 AM
I like it :) The texture here creates some nice teasing lines and shadows for sure... I also like the fact that I can see the surface texture on the top of the egg. You did a great job on this photo... I would have probably blown the egg surface completely out if I tried this :) = 9 - jmsetzler

Nicely lit and a good idea.

Looks like something out from outer space..very interesting perspective
07/23/2002 04:28:00 AM
great pic
07/23/2002 01:01:00 AM
nice light source, totally changes the viewer's perspective! 9 all the way
07/22/2002 10:40:00 PM
Would I be forgiven for the pun 'egg-cellent'? No, I didn't think so... Never mind...
Great shot... A solid 10
07/22/2002 10:21:00 PM
great composition and dramatic in grayscale
07/22/2002 08:52:00 PM
Nice creative shot, though you've lost most of the texture of the egg shell. Different lighting would probably have messed up the cardboard though. I like it.
07/22/2002 07:50:00 PM
Oh, I like this image. Very original. When the image slowly unrolled on my screen (have a slow modem) was wondering what those mountains had to do with the egg. Then I discovered it was the carton! lol Just see a little too much sepia in the carton, not enough contrast and don't care for the black "shape" above the egg.
07/22/2002 06:43:00 PM
I really like this shot. Good idea. Works well B&W
07/22/2002 05:04:00 PM
Nice twist on a common item. I like how you achieve a great sense of depth with the shadows. The smooth egg contrasting with the rough carton adds a nice touch and makes the composition complete and more interesting.
07/22/2002 03:22:00 PM
I like this.......well done, creative, inventive work.KEE

Absolutely awesome! This one better end up in the top three otherwise I will be really disappointed in the voters. ;-) I've rated all images for this challenge and yours is the only perfect 10 I gave. My reasons: great composition, focus, exposure, lighting and, of course, unique subject. Excellent work!
07/22/2002 01:43:00 PM
Unusual perspective on the subject. I like how it is composed.
07/22/2002 01:28:00 PM
Despite what some might describe as BAD lighting, I think it works VERY well 8
07/22/2002 12:12:00 PM
Love this. Great b&w composition, lighting, textures. 10 Lisa
07/22/2002 10:53:00 AM
Cool, great lighting. Good work on this one. The lighting works nice for the egg yet it brings out all the detail in the carton. 9
