I don't know how I missed commenting on this one. I gave you a 10 because I really liked the clarity of the top, cone and base. It did take a moment to understand, but when I did, I felt that you had done a remarkable job presenting a complex idea. Now that I refound this, I thought I would leave a note. Good job.

This one took a little thought to understand it is an incense burner and you have the base uncovered to show the cone burning. I have a feeling that is what happened with this that you scored as low as you did. Takes a little time to understand the photo. Your idea is good but you know the DPC voter doesn't think just glances.

Your lighting here is fantastic as is the color and detail. Nice work Ursula.

nice effect. I'll bet this would have scored a lot higher if a plant or something more difinitive was in the pot. Nice job.

I'm puzzled as to the relevance of the title to the photo or the theme. It's a gorgeous piece of pottery, and the photo brings its detail out nicely.

It took me a while to figure out this was an incense cone, or was an incense cone. Too bad it was not directly centered with the top's bellybutton. Nice idea and very well lit.

I like the background pottery in this image. I'm not sure I really understand the purpose in the rest of the image. I suppose it is showing the 'exposed' effect by being transparent. Maybe that is the effect you were going for here.

I like the idea with the long exposure and change of pieces.

But the large black border IMO detracts from the image message.

Humm, the shallow dof doesn't really add to _this_ shot in my opinion. The subject is the cone yet the it's not in focus. I'm unsure what the grey circle is in the shot?? I will say that I think your lighting is very good.

Good points: nice colours and great composition
Bad Points: none - but the border is a bit too thick for my taste.

Interesting idea to use a double exposure, but I can't help but feel that this technique could have been much more interesting to the viewer with a different subject. Strangely, although I usually hate large borders, this one works nicely here. Good colours and lighting. Effective crop. 8

A very interesting way to portray 'exposed'. I like the uniqueness of the idea and its manifestation, though I do have to admit the image is a bit startling. Very nice job in taking something mundane and making it interesting. 7

Very cool. You don't get to see the insence itself too often, so wonderful idea. The long exposure is great, the way the cone can be seen through is very good. The lighting is just a bit dark for me but otherwise a wonderful overall shot. Starting with an 8

this has a definite southwestern/american indian aesthetic to it. some might comment that the border is too much, but I like it. it emphasizes the minimal composition.
