First of all thanks to all who voted for my bathmat and thanks to the ones who didn't but have mentioned it in dispatches since. Thanks for the crits as well.
Secondly well done to you as well Ogga, I voted for your marvellous coloured oil drops (even though I preferred your blue version that you posted in the chat thread). What can I say - a real striking image as soon as you see it (I think Mark may have hit the nail on the head when he said "SHINY", I'm sure we must be decended from Magpies, cos everyone loves a nice bit of shiny, don't they?)
Thirdly, well done Carol for setting such a good topic, it really got everyone going didn't it? And such a wide range of good images (reflected in the spread voting). Ogga's got a lot to live up to with the choice of topic this week!
Top & bottoms
bsmith : Round bits in my car
- A very good idea and nearly works. With Ogga, I'm not sure about the top right reflection thingy, or the camera lens on the left. Maybe with the speedo needle on 180 and a couple of LEDs shining from the dash. Maybe a couple of false shadows would have also added a little more depth to the image. Good effort though.
robincastle : Round berries
- you didn't post a very big image to look at, so it's difficult to say for certain, but the focus on the berries looks a little soft. The composition needs to concentrate on the berries (imo) and maybe if you'd got in closer to them and made them much bigger. There looks to be some potential in the red spotted berries for a good macro of a large round berry. Sorry, it didn't work for me this one.
Well done to all and I just hope Ogga and I can come up with something to keep you interested for this weekend.
