According to the guidelines, "show us some awesome pictures of fast food. It can be burgers, fries, nuggets, chicken sandwiches, chili from Wendy's or anything you like that comes from a fast food place. " is this about the fast food or more about the child who appears to be the subject? Although a decent 'snap'...it's more of a portrait IMHO

Sorry Author, while I understand your reasoning here, Mark is correct, the DOF is so shallow, the entire image seems a bit on the soft side. Perhaps a bit more lighting and distance between the subjects and a tad higher f/stop and you can increase the DOF and bring better attention to where you see the need for it. Having so much of the image OOF just isn't working here IMHO

"In ancient time people believe that moon is a paradise for bunny. " Thank you Author for that information, I did not know that bunnies considered the Moon to be Paradise....no wonder my daughters pet rabbit keeps looking out the window on moon-lit nights with that profound expression on his little furry face...

Author, to create a more "Abstract" effect, maybe crop out the shore line on the top? I think it may better then fit the title you gave. Nice entry though

Abstract in Green

NP Author...I know you probably used extension tubes to shoot this, which require you to get VERY close to the subject, not allowing much light between the lens and subject, if you want to know how to light this particular type situation, drop me a PM and I can give you some better tips.

WOW, nicely done Author, great idea here

Nice composition and complimentary color Author, but the photo is a bit flat, lacking a decent amount of light, perhaps try using a bit more natural light and a reflector to get good light and definition in the future. Macros and close-ups are notoriously hard to light well.

Nicely done...love this image, the bright red dress pops nicely against the hard surroundings.

Seeing Red
avatar UncleJimmy

Nice Back ground, but I might suggest cropping the image so the flower is more towards the lower right third (rule of thirds) instead of centered...it would make for a much more interesting photo

Wonderful soft profile shot Author, works very well, the composition is very nice... Good luck

Cat
avatar UncleJimmy

The action you caught is nice, the composition is good also...my only advice is to try and control your shutter-speeds to get a crisper shot. The subject lends itself to a nice conversion to B&W, maybe a levels adjustment and a bit more contrast also...Good Luck

Nemo Says "Hey"

I was the Mod who removed the entry...I am NOT color blind, for some reason, my monitor/computer loaded the wrong color profile and the entry showed up as red/teal on my screen. I asked the other Mods to check and re instated the entry, with an apologies... no reason to be so nasty, mistakes to happen and can be corrected...

Again, so sorry...it took only 5 minutes

Author, you may want to reshoot and/or upload a hi-rez image also, when you upload images, be sure to check the box that says 'save hi resolution also"

Isn't it nice to see an SBS in photography then? See a wonderfully executed shot and perhaps try it yourself sometime. To lean from other that have a few years of experience behind them...

I'm certain the reason the suggester of the contest guidelines had something in mind with that clause, perhaps something like, the reason Pxl was created and why MANY of the members are here..."TO LEARN"...why not an SBS explaining some of the 'magic' so others may see an image that inspires them and read a bit on the authors' procedures for taking the shot. Hey, simply, if you desire to keep your techniques 'hidden, then by all means, it's a free site, you are frre to comply with the guidelines or simply not enter; whatever. I for one would rather teach and instruct, I do it all the time. I've learned a lot here mainly by taking the time to PM authors asking "How did you do that? It's amazing!" Maybe a newer person won't have to courage to ask. SBS's are fine for the Photoshop entries,and many learn from that too.

Nem...according to the contest rules: You need to explain in the SBS how you made this shot....OPEN YOUR EYES and READ THE GUIDELINES COMPLETELY!!! (or return to grade school for a reading lession) before making such a comment...

Would have made for a wonderful shot if you had been able to capture the entire dog and not cut off his/her ears, bonus points too if the animal was looking more in you direction...but on theme

I like the angle also, different and still works here...a nice leading line created by the tree tops leads from the top left to the guard, it keeps the eyes on the subject well

More likely "silicon" or sand author...LOL if this were a real "carbon diamond, doubt you would be showing it off!...

(5 years and 1014 days ago)

Carbon
avatar UncleJimmy

Nice angle, but, in my opinion, the leading line of the base of the water tower starting in the corner of the right of the photo as it is in the left corner would have made for a better image...

(5 years and 1015 days ago)

Old water tower
avatar UncleJimmy

no, not "super original" but, it really works here IMHO...the colors 'pop' nicely and the overall image is well balanced and pleasing....that's what makes a good image. This would be classified as visual confusion and is a wonderful image...could make a neat screen saver too...

Alright Author, great image, wonderful lighting...and definitely a Fav....but if u have this much time on your hands to set-up a candy photo....maybe u need another hobby...LOL...just kidding, I think this is a great way to kick off this contest...well done

With all due respect author...it's not obvious they are reflections since the BG seems so uniform...I would really appreciate to know how you accomplished this then since it does look very interesting...a PM would be fine...I won't give away your secret!
