Nice shot, and nice play with the title.
Very nice composition and colors.
Nice clean shot. I would also crop a little of the lower part, try to get the lowest drop (or the small crater just below the drop) on the bisecting line of one of the lower picture corners.
Very nice moment you caught. There is a small white point on the left of the heads which distracts from the faces, I would clone this one out.
edit: I'm quite sure it was not my screen ;-)
Nice shot. The patina shows the age of the instrument and/or the way it was cared for. Could be interesting to see the clarinet placed against a dark background/sheet to make the polished parts shine more intensely.
I like your title and agree with the pre-posts. Also, in this view the picture imo looks like studio shot, whereas in full size you can see the snow much better. Maybe there is something you can do to emphasize the natural environment, and especially the snow (i.e. snow on the cones? less highlights and more contrat so you can see more details in the snow?).
Agree with the pre-posts. If there is so many flowers in the foreground maybe you could add contrast and clarity to give them more dynamics? Don't know your original picture and if there is the chance to do so.
If you rearrange it you could use a lower ISO. Only a suggestion, as the grain effect of the higher ISO may also be a wanted style. I like the green and the stipes looking into different directions.
thank you Jen for your positive comment :-)
Thank you guys for your positive feedback. Most of you got it right - it's eggs and water in a beaker - don't remember what I was cooking. What urged me to take the shot was the air bubbles caught by strings of egg white so they were standnig still inside the liquid. So I could choose a greater aperture to catch more of them in focus...Congrats to the great pictures of the winners!
I would go with you
chj: pencil sharpener?
The Mick: Perforated metal, possibly aluminum, (that has been heavily sanded) with a green background.
agree, good description
The Mick: These appear to be on asphault, so my guess is these are visual markers on a speed bump... unless of course, the fisheye view is throwing me off. BTW, how did you take the photo without your feet getting in there? Must have been standing on your hands. ;o)
agree, good common sense
chrisby: water drops frozen on the window with additional ice crystals starting to form on the surface of the drops
agree they are frozen - nice shot
izdatu: a tent
ice cream pieces on ice surface
a small pump or valve?
looks like a detail from an oven with very hot tiles
