Inspired by the increasing popularity of "lounge" music...

I didn't have any time during the week to take any pictures, so I wasn't going to enter. But I got this idea, and my sister liked the name / album cover / theme (but did warn me that it might not be "crazy enough")... so I went ahead and took some pictures for another of my wait-til-the-last-minute submissions (this shot was taken at 10:24pm and uploaded at about 11:50pm!) I didn't have any olives in the house, so the "olive" in the glass is really a plastic grape from a fake fruit basket in our kitchen!

The colorful background is just some multi-colored fabric that I "swooped" up behind the glass.

Shot with the Canon 100mm/2.8 Macro.

This was a cool entry Eddie.
Unique, bright and believable, and why I hit it at an 8!

Nice shot!

Hands down my favorite of the bunch! Love the background and the typeface choices are perfect. I think that the glow you gave was a bit thick but perfect other than that. I give it a 9.5 but I need to round up to a 10 (too bad, huh?). :)

This looks lke an album cover. I like how you lightened the area behind the words. I like the name of the band and the wild colors. Good job.

This is fabulous... I just love it. Composition, lighting, colors, everything about it great. I can't wait to see how you got the background. Love the fonts you used.... I hope to see this in winners row!

Cool cover. Don't like the band name--it sounds more like an album title. But the cover is really well done and accurate to the style. Good job!

I'm a sucker for bright colors, but I really do like this one. A really fun and entertaining composition, and a very believable band name. Nice job!
