The natural lighting is fantastic and the background works really well....it has the feel of an image that took a long time to set up, so knowing it was relatively quick is all the more impressive!
Nice work Mandy!
Hi Mandy, that's a cute little cat ornament for Object and the simple style and setting show off the colour and shape very nicely, while the bubbles in Wet are full of great details and lovely rainbows
Object - Nice rice colours to the wood there and the graduated, not quite black background avoids any 'floaty' feel
Wet - Great rainbows Just don't drink it through the straw (yuck).
Free Week - Very nice. Good use of diagonals and the complementary red and greens work nicely together.
Object - The natural lighting works well, and there's enough background to keep the object grounded whilst not being distracting.
Wet - The focus is perfect, clearly picking out the outline of the bubbles in the front. I really like the rainbow reflection with the tadpole shapes, fascinating.
Free week - I like the subtle reflection! I hadn't noticed the amount of detail in the petals until I looked at it on Flickr. I know you were going for SOOC but I'd have liked to see it with the saturation turned up to try and make the flower pop a bit more.
Like the image here. If the stem was short enough? pulling back a weeny bit and not chopping it off would have topped off a good image. If the stem was not viable to do this then placing it in the corner was a great plan too.
Fantastic work on the catch up Mandy! Above: Smashing image....love the clouds, and fits the theme nicely. Hot: Great colours here, and I especially like how you got the reflections of the lights on the shiny table....clever framing! Light: Crisp and simple that works very well as a mono - nice processing! Crowded: Lovely image with terrific sharpness front to back. Super, deep colours too....nice! Decay: Stunning macro image! Spot on focus....right where it needs to be, and those colours and tones....just wonderful, my favourite image of the set! Free: Likewise with above, very nice macro, and I like the little critters in there too....fascinating!
