Look the world through the view finders!
Though your situation bounds you to take this pics from base /ground level--I dream to take such pics from above so that viewers' sight go along with Tulips!
This photograph should be seen in full resolution--probably this picture was taken with Film --nice grain--good composition--
A story telling pics--5 star is less than the situation!
You may be not the winner--but your photograph wins my heart!3.5/5
Congrates U will be the winner!
Probably a winner--but picture is not perfect--1]the part of hat should be inside the frame 2}The Right ear should be in picture completely --otherwise picture is sharp-@f4--button is inside the frame--good detail--
At least U the winner!
I think this pics should get 1st--the image that get 1st position got from composition and colour--but when it is looked very minutely --the pics is not very simple!With a simple paper the photographer played with light and composition and black+shadow!So I personally recommend this pics as 1st!
In sample--one is focus, other is out of focus--my entry disqualified-but both are out of focus---if both are out of focus--should it be disqualified!Sorry to say this!If u think that they are in focus little---not worthy.
Who ever u Copy right violation should not be done.So we should aware of choosing our pics, even sample entry--2nd thing is below 1600 or 1600 pixels photo quality may be lost--what u say!
CG33: Nice picture, but to me, if the flower is placed a little bit more to the right it would be more pleasant.
I once placed these flowers towards right also--little bit right--but the edge of plastic gives dis-tractive--so finally I placed like this--this flower is not so big--few mm only-
Out of focus--To keep standard of the theme , the out of focus should be creative-
Only God can give u such moments!
I am disqualified--but I have placed this pics for 2nd time--first was with copy right name--so why DQ!
I am just waiting fr REsults!My 10 fingers fr u!Winner or 1 out of first 5th Rank!
The ball should come into frame
I like the colour+Diagonal composition
u will win--great!
Patty Capps: Yes, this is a very nice shot, and a good subject. I like the dramatic side-light, and the composition using the shadows of the negative space to highlight the edges of the coins. I agree with amitabhkumar that it does need a bit more sharpening, and perhaps some noise reduction as well. Your choice of sepia works very well with this subject as well. My overall impression is that this is a really good composition and strong image. If you can sharpen it up a bit, and reduce some of the noise, then I think this would be exceptional.
Thanks a lot---In fact I am using Photoshop to Give some Effect--So viewers getting Matt Type Look--This is intentional to give the simple white paper as a rough cover on which coins rests--& to feel all are getting old!and rest criticism is yours!But I must say thank you since u forwarding ur nice constructive criticism!
amitabhkumar: it's nice but there os much purple color fringing in the left.of u can make it out it will be better.
No--Purple fringing is natural--it is from Sun--But I will try to remove the dirtyness.Thanks fr ur couple of good criticism.
