This is a beautiful image. I can see it on a wall of a summer beach house. Perhaps my favorite take on "hope" in the challenge. 10

Maybe a different angle would work better, I keep turning my head when viewing it and my neck hurts. Nice sharp image and very good idea.

So perfectly portrays the competition. Wonderful idea too. The photo has been turned 90 degrees maybe? It looks a little strange at this angle. My highest rated photo of the competition!

bottle too centered, might try rotrateing it, looks abit strange like this. Nice texture on the stones.

Great concept. I don't know that I would have chosen the same crop but it's a 9 anyway.

Excelent job. The only thing that bothers me is the position of the bottle. Would have liked to seen it lower in the frame.

Very nice picture. I am new at this and it might be just me, but the vertical orientation doesnt feel right.

Very original. One of my favorites!

Good idea, nice use of the slow shutter speed and reflected light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2004 11:32:28 AM
THe orientation seems really crazy... Ithink it might be better as a landscape... It's just making me dizzy the way it is! But a great photo, and it fits the challenge nicely.

Great shot, but doesn't inspire hope. Sorry

08/25/2004 04:05:11 PM
great idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 03:49:28 PM
I like how the bottle stands out from the rocks but there isn't a huge constrast between the two.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 03:13:40 PM
excellent choice for a subject matter. Whoever put that message in the bottle is really crossing their fingers huh?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cleaver idea, and well executed. The colors and textures of the rocks you've captured are outstanding. Focus is terrific. Nice highlights and reflections. Borders are risky, but in this case I think you've pulled off a good one. Some will quibble about the central placement of the bottle (comp) but in this case I think it works well to separate the background of the top and bottom halves. Great job!

love this pic, only thing for me is that I would feel more comfortable if the angle of the image suggested being washed up on a shore rather than stuck on a waterfall :)

Great picture. I tired that myself but nevet got near to what you managed. 10

Nice

Good idea. It's every student film I've ever done. It seems the bottle is out of focus, but the water is effective.
