Not my original idea at all, but I'm happy with it!

Not too much processing - levels and selective color

Hi Lee from the Critique Club

This is a very good composition and a great idea
I like the silhouette look but to me the white is a bit stark
I agree with the voter who says the straw should face inwards
I like the hand
Very good detail and focus
You score is good but I guess you would have liked better (wouldnt we all) I cannot be much help as to why it didn't score higher
There were a lot of great images in this challenge yours being one of them but there can only be 3 ribbon holders At least 3 people so far have added it to there Favorite list
Continue to enjoy your photography
and Good luck for future Challenge entries If you have any questions please feel free to PM me

I love the silouetting

Nice. I like the High Key Lighting Set up. The whole thing is Fabulous 10

unusual presentation, best graphic presentation, quite to bright, if you ask my opinion i want a little darker, the composition is exceptional.

bold in concept and idea, original... i simply like it, i do like non traditional image!!!

i still give it a 10!! congrats on your finework, goodluck...

I like this one because I can tell that you used your creative side to create this. I'm liking the title also.

Very graphic and nicely done. Don't think you need the area below the glass and above the border - although it would be a perfect spot for text.

i like the idea, but the hand is a bit over-powering, my eye is drawn to it too much

Nice touch but whats with the egg?
07/30/2004 09:53:11 AM
clean, totally original.

love the black line underneath
07/29/2004 07:22:32 PM
Simple and good - maybe with the straw pointing into the picture?
07/29/2004 11:18:20 AM
Is that an egg nogg ;-)
Nice composition. 7

this is deep. it's classy and offbeat--good combo. it follows just enough design rules that it still communicates clearly. the hand isn't quite right, i'm not sure what to change. perhaps it would look better further back with a little more wrist visible?

interesting...love the B/W silhouette treatment, but not so sure about the subjects and composition as far as the theme goes... which is the everyday object?
07/29/2004 02:18:58 AM
I like it better without the hand.
07/28/2004 10:34:38 AM
Elegant !
07/28/2004 09:36:23 AM
to bizarre!!! (an 8)
07/28/2004 02:58:07 AM
Oh, great shot! Perfect setup =). Egg is straight on, horizon is level, no reflections on the hand and the straw is the finishing touch. Truelly bizarre.
