lovely colors, focus, idea.....this is a great shot!
09/15/2002 10:12:00 AM
Very beautiful. A lot of photos this week have similar elements, eg. the backlighting, the drops of water, the sky background. But they mesh so well in this photo. One of my 10s - lisae

Great photo. You have captured very nice detail on the lemon, and the droplet of water looks great! I also think you picked a great day to shoot, as the sky is just perfect! I think to make it a better shot however, the lemon should be a brighter yellow, because at the moment it looks a bit dull. Maybe some different lighting would help this issue a bit? Besides that I think this is a great photo!
09/15/2002 02:03:00 AM
great, but could do with being under exposed a stop or so to bring out the lemon and sky colours - maybe a polarising lens would sharpen the sky up too ?

Outstanding! I can't believe how well you captured the drop coming off of the lemon slice.
09/14/2002 06:19:00 PM
Great, This is the best one in this challenge
09/14/2002 03:11:00 PM
Just wanted to say that every time I look at this photo, I want to pucker. I assume that this is a lemon slice, but with the lighting, it's really tough to tell for sure...could be an orange slice. However, I like the refection you captured on the water drop. Good job!!

Another one worthy of display.
09/13/2002 05:59:00 PM
awesome picture, love the droplet, and the light behind the fruit!
09/13/2002 11:11:00 AM
a nice effect, but i feel like the image is really soft and loses a lot of the color range. this may have benefited nicely from a polorizing filter to give that sky more punch. overall, though, a nicely timed and composed shot.
09/13/2002 06:32:00 AM
Would like a little more light from front - a fill-in flash perhaps?
The water droplets are just beautiful.

this is very pretty, makes me thirsty 7--shutterfly

I love the cloudy sky and the mixture of blue and yellow. The water droplets are sensuous and add a reminder of what makes lemons so great. I'd like to see a brighter yellow, a slightly higher color saturation.
09/12/2002 05:31:00 AM
EXCELLENT water droplets and great light. Well done! 9 - floyd
09/12/2002 04:27:00 AM
This is a superb effort. I really like the shot; it's an ingenious use of light, and yes, it really does looked kissed by the sun. I can't say anything constructive or helpful; composition is spot on, use of colour and light is outstanding, stop motion is marvellous, focus – oh, why am I going on… Easy (10)
09/12/2002 01:22:00 AM
It's just a little over exposed for my taste, but I like it. The drip adds a nice touch. Good Luck, Gotcha 8
09/11/2002 05:05:00 PM
This is one of my 10s for the week, but I don't really know what to even say about it. It's just a very well done, attractive shot. I like the lighting, colors, composition, and focus. The drip adds so much to the shot. ~indigo997

Very nice. I like everything about this picture. Good work! karmat
09/11/2002 12:57:00 PM
Looks kind of like an advertisement! Love the droplets against the sky. The lemon slice is too dark for me, I would have liked to have seen the bright yellow against the sky. lhall-7
09/11/2002 10:57:00 AM
Fantastic idea. Love the color. it seems as if the shot was done indoors against a window. I would have liked a more translucent appearance to the lemon and greater surface detail..still..very nice 8..hokie
09/11/2002 09:49:00 AM
great photo for sure. the sun kissed droplets are a nice effect that really make this shot stand out. (9) ~mcmurma
09/11/2002 09:04:00 AM
Very nice.
09/10/2002 11:41:00 PM
Oo.. nice job getting that drop to stretch out!
09/10/2002 11:09:00 PM
Beautiful! Although the rind takes away some of the pop. Not sure how else it could have been done. I still like this a lot though. - 9
09/10/2002 09:31:00 PM
I'm thirsty just from looking at this one... great execution! My only critique would be to tighten the crop by a few pixels on either side to get rid of the blue to the left and right of the lemon at the very top. -ClubJuggle
09/10/2002 08:20:00 PM
kinda gives a new look at the sun!!!! and liquid sunshine!!! (we have that here in FL) ayme-9
09/10/2002 06:28:00 PM
This water drop is perfect :) I love the blue and yellow in this image... great work :) = 9 - jmsetzler
09/10/2002 03:59:00 PM
Very nice! I was going to do a lime with the light behind it and call it "Lime Light" - but couldn't get it to work (because of skills and old lime - lol) I like the sky, the drops are almost too perfect! Excellent texture. Get the feeling that you are actually holding it right here. Great work 10
09/10/2002 03:24:00 PM
This is an all around great picture. I was going to attempt to try a shot like this, but I soon found that it was very difficult. Yours came out great.
09/10/2002 01:31:00 PM
simple and beautiful...a 10!
09/10/2002 01:30:00 PM
Wow, this is wonderful. The stars in the drops is a great touch! The texture of the lemon slice is great. The closest thing to a complaint that I can come up with is the lighting across the lemon isn't very even. Golly. 9 Swash
09/10/2002 11:54:00 AM
great concept!
09/10/2002 10:06:00 AM
Brilliant. How did you get that light? Excellent detail on the juice. Makes my mouth water. Congratulations
09/10/2002 08:01:00 AM
i am giving tons of 10s now...
09/10/2002 07:34:00 AM
Brilliant shot. Great colour. Seems to give a feeling of 'Nice and fresh'. Fantastic shot.
09/10/2002 05:14:00 AM
I like this one a lot. One of my favorites. I wonder how many times it took you to get the drop just right! Nice clarity, good definition of the inside of the lemon. Well done. 10/10
09/10/2002 02:08:00 AM
Love the drip. Perfect shot!!
09/10/2002 12:10:00 AM
Nice focus! I like the lighted star burst in the bottom droplett!
09/09/2002 10:41:00 PM
nice fotografia
09/09/2002 07:40:00 PM
Oh wow. Nice shot. How fast was this shot? 1/1000, or faster? This is amazing. I certainly think this deserves to be in the top three, if not the winner. What's good: 1. the glow in the lemon 2. they clouds are JUST right, not too far past the lemon 3. the glow of the lemon. 3. the stop footage on that drop. Man how awesome is that! 4. did i mention the glow in the lemon :) - phlebotiss.

Nice composition...love the drips...would have liked a bit more saturation here..maybe a little curve tweak too 8 Lisa

I really like this photo, one of my favorites this week!
09/09/2002 10:43:00 AM
This picture is great. My wife had this idea, but we forgot to try it. The transparency is good, and the stop motion on the juice drops is great.
09/09/2002 09:53:00 AM
Great photo!!! Probably, it will win the challenge!
09/09/2002 01:34:00 AM
very nice. perfect on the drop.
