lol...you'll have to excuse me..I've just seen the movie "Troy"
Would've title this one, "Addressing his troops".
Nice shot, very imaginitive, good use of lighting, dof, and subject positioning.

I feel the same way sometimes :( The kiss by itself actually looks depressed. Very creative and well done. 10

Would have been nicer in b/w I think but I love the curve made

Interesting idea. When I first saw it I thought it would suit something more towards Viagra...but then that is where the depression could come from. the light is too harsh on the right, and I think that the focus could be just a touch sharper on that poor guy on the right. It seems that is just a touch behind the area of interest. Not totally sure but I feel the WB could be adjusted a little too, seems a bit muddy, throughout.

this is very well done (could be a poster for an organization helping people deal with depression). you used light well and created an interesting composition.

the shape of the chocolate peice really conveys depression well!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/24/2004 11:57:34 AM
Wow! Very well done. Great idea. Well executed. I wonder if a different background than the off-white (paper?) would make it even better? It kind of makes the image feel like it has a yellowish color cast. 8.

awww... That's just so cute.

I like your picture. To me it looks like the isolated piece of chocolate is guilty of something!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Reminds me of the move Ants with woodie allen.

Fantastic. Love his slump!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2004 01:22:04 AM
Excellent composition. I even like the DoF - but normally would complain about the soft focus on the near objects. My biggest problem is the color cast of the (incansecent?) lighting. It would work much better if the light were whiter...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That chip looks really sad :(
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/22/2004 12:43:04 PM
This photo is very cute. I like how you have the piece of chocolate all by itself and how it looks so down. Nice going
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love your interpretation on this.
Dof is right for this, as is the lighting.
One of my favorites in this challenge!
A well-deserved ((10))

I love the mood on this one. It's almost depressing, yet humorous. I can't tell if the graininess I see is the actual chocolate itself though.

It definitely made me smile. :)

interesting POV....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 04:27:26 PM
Aaaaaw poor little melted mite! Lighting a little poor and too much banding. Is this over compressed?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 02:47:53 PM
LOL Good shot. White balance seems a bit off though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 02:40:04 PM
a little grainy, but i like the lighting and concept
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 01:58:48 PM
I like the idea but this would have scored better with me if it had more depth of field, more of the subject needs to be in focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I feel bad for him:)

funny and great shot! (9)

Ahhh... somebody give the little guy a hug!
Very creative and I like the lighting. The paper the chocolates are sitting on is a little distracting though - I would have liked to see something smoother. I'm giving you a 9 anyway. You have managed to make chocolate emotive which is no small task at all!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 08:22:40 AM
Nice use of focus and lighting to draw attention to the subject. The dark shadows are a little distracting. Very clever placement of the isolated "kiss".. I actually feel sorry for it :) 8/10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 05:08:47 AM
Excellent. I really liked this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 03:41:51 AM
LOL awww poor bud ... look at him moping! Funny how even chocolate buds can portray emotion! Anyway, love the creativity, lighting is OK, focus is a bit off, I think contrast is a bit low. The quality of this image is OFF for some reason. 5

Aww. Poor little chip. This picture stirs some emotion. Good job!

07/21/2004 02:34:04 AM
I like the idea, the one alone and melted would be the one I eat first ;)

Very nice compositon and lighting. I don't think the white border goes with the picture very well though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This photo is so sad! Yet very creative. Way to go for thinking outside the box. Great composition, and I like the focus on this. Good luck!!

I LOVE IT! Good composition, good focus (could be a little sharper on the odd kiss out) Great concept. Way to think out of the box. Thank you!
