Came back to vote +3!!
Back to vote on this lovely photo.
Wow, this really pops, nice entry. vote
I really like this. Great depth in it. And I like the border applied to your entry... as a change of pace.
I'm right back to my original comment here, but the lighting and framing are great, the rest is icing on the cake, Very skillful!
Thanks for all the great comments - Now that we have more votes, hope you can throw a few this way. ;-) Thanks!
This is another amazing image. The depth and clarity are great. Technically an excellent shot. Not sure about the border and edge effects but I like it anyway. +1 for technical aspect, + 1 for color. Great job!
very apealing I agree it could be used as a great advert for anything conected to wine
This is a stunning photo. Great job! The clarity is excellent as well as the placement. The color and contrast is awesome.
The grapes are very crisp with sharp detail. This photo could be an attention grabbing label on a bottle of vino... I'd buy it for the image of the grapes! Since I have returned to this photo several times... you get a vote from me : ) Voted!
I like the use of complementary colors in the background to offset the grapes. Very nice! Voted.
MCP...I tried to explain in first post so I hope you try real hard to like it. I simply feathered my cropping with a background color that matched the GPR background and applied a slight vignette. Then I put the white border in to give it the 3D effect. Throw in a dash of saturation. All done within boundaries of course. Thanks for asking. Hope it's worth a boost or 2!
not sure what you employed to accomplish this shot, but regardless, I really like your entry! Bravo!
I want to like this but am unsure of what I am looking at... it looks like it is 3D and/or a composite. Maybe it's the vignetting, but whatever you did does make the grapes pop off the image. Can you explain a bit more for my own understanding? I'll be back to see your response, and thanks.
cool nice colors voted
I like your choice of the 1 x 1 format, and by doing so you have actually split the frame into thirds and aligned the contrasting edges on the vertical thirds. So in a way, you did use the rule, just not in the standard sense, more like a portrait. The colors are very soft and natural and the light makes the subject stand out. Well thought out, good work.
Perfect photo. Looks like a postcard I bought in Sonoma. Very nice...and I'm wild about the colors. :)
ILUV nature photos. Makes me wanna pluck one and eat it. But then you'd have a little less repetition. First time I've seen border around a photo. I kinda like it.
Another of nature's beautiful repetitions. Very nice!
Great shot love the composition and colours with the grapes in the fore ground and I think the framing is excellent voted
Very nice I see it in the grapes and the Vain's in the leaves. Nice color
As a thumbnail...these appear simply as a bunch of grapes. Yet if you take a moment now to consider the entire image, I trust you'll recognize the significance of the framing and colors in the implied theme. I purposely ignored the rule of 3rds and also made a conscious decision about the vignette color to match GPR's background and risked putting in the border to bring it all together. Please zoom in and have a look. Nature is repetitive, yet beautiful. Thanks for dropping by.
