Entry 3 of 18
lunch for jade       ©2013 elliott
Olympus E-620       3rd place, 124 points
1/13s, f10, ISO 100, ?, Manual, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: minor adjust to lighting, crop, resize.       Extra Info: i always like the lighting that jade used in the entry 'box maker's lunch' in the fresh fruit challenge number 113. sort old masters lighting. i tried until my eyes started to bleed (well that is what they look like right now) but couldn't capture the 'glow' that jade had in that shot. still had fun and put in a few elements that i would include in my lunch. (and yes, i had to replenish the props a few times)

    Kudos to the photograher who put this one together. It is a fine photo (though Mepo's comment has me thinking - I'm still liking the composition but cannot figure out why I don't find the elements he points out to be distracting here - I think it is probably your use of lighting keeps the subject in the foreground and the secondary elements by placement and lighting secondary.) A fine effort. Congratulations! (See outtakes...it was tough to "improve" on your version--almost anything I tried didn't look as good as your original...not sure if the glow was effective but I wanted to give it a shot...hope you don't mind.)

    You picked a tough one to emulate. I like your rendition a lot. The difference that I see between the two is the texture that makes Jade's look more like an old master's painting. Yours, being more real-life, makes my mouth water.

    Very beautiful, I like the old fashion feeling made by the illumination and colors.

    The basket on one side and the bottle on the other add distractions to this shot. Love the main composition, great detail , contrast and colour.

    I like this and it's a favorite. However, I think it's a bit busy and could do without the material in the upper left.

    I think you did a wonderful job on the lighting, usually not a fan of food shots but between the light and dark contrast I really like this one.

    I'm flattered. Your composition is better or maybe I just like the full handtool in the image. You've nailed the lighting. If anything, I'm questioning the sandwich which seems a little over processed, pretty as it is, it may take a little from the simplicity but on the other hand, ties everything together so I wouldn't change it. Maybe I'll play in outtakes to see if I can old master it. But it is a fine image.
