Thank you all for participating. I was hoping for a some more periodic table action, thanks teekay, but it was just not meant to be. Still, lovely set of images this round.

A word about my Nitpicks: If you have a watermark, I mention it as a Nitpick. I DO NOT PENALIZE for the use of a watermark, however, they annoy me and thus earn the Nitpick mention.

Now for some words:


Kevan:
Several classical elements are represented in your lovely tonal capture. Though there is limited action, there is enough to keep me busy. Meandering dark ripples anchor the image and slowly dissipate moving upward and into warmer tones. Nicely done. Nitpick: though small, the item upper left of frame distracts. Also, there appears to be some orange clipping in the ocean. Not drastic, but I see a little.

Jean-Guy:
Nicely weighted image with wispy clouds, and a treasure hunter seeking the pot of gold (Au) at the end of the nicely arching rainbow. Several classical elements represented here (with the possibility of some Au at rainbow's end and probably some chemical elements in the plane as well) in this well exposed image. Well done. Nitpick: I'd a cropped it a little more on the left and top. Watermark.

N.V.M.:
A very lovely lady enduring a barrage of classical elements, her silver (Ag) earings sway in the wind, pauses briefly left of frame to give this composition a good balance. Lovely colors and exposure, and subject isolation is very good. Well done. Nitpick: No exif; I want to know the details. Border and watermark.

Mo:
Classical elements meet the byproduct of earth in it's internal creation of chemical elements found in the periodic table. The thickness of vapor from this Hawaiian volcano has always fascinated me. Nice composition and exposure. Nitpick: Does not seem as sharp as it could be, and lacks a little punch.

John:
Cold, bleak, austere and nightmarish...classica​l elements represented in this Kafka forest. Well done in going the extra mile for the capture. What I see I like, however see nitpicks. Nitpicks: I really wish this attachment (and the linked image) were larger, both are just too darn small. Watermark.

Matt:
Classical meets chemical in a nicely composed capture that leads one from blur to subject. In this instance, the border does not annoy me. Not much else to say, Matt, except well done. Nitpick: I see this image as b&w, and I wish it were. Watermark.

teekay:
Here we have a human Au display, complete it Au nail polish and Au-ish shag carpet. Isn't shag carpet in the periodic table? Should be. DoF and exposure are spot on. Nice effort. Nitpick: The pose of the young ladies foot just is not doing it for me. And the cloning on the leg and ankle is not desirable at all. Cloning can be real tricky especially if there is a lot to clone out...practice, practice practice.

Garry:
Chilly classical elements are fused and spliced to create the Antarctic Tundra Spider Sub King Crab from Southern Sri Lanka (;))...well, that's what I see. From what I can gather, exposure seems to be very good for this subject matter, with very good DoF. I am both confused AND freaked out by your submission...and that is not a bad thing. Nicely done. Nitpick: I normally dig the unusual, but the 'seam' between both sides coupled with the exact symmetry of both sides tells my brain that this was manipulated this way and not a freak of nature. I also wonder what the original image looks like.

Remember, I am no authority. I'm just a dude with a camera sharing his opinions and views in the above comments.

Well done everyone, and thank you again for submitting. Jean-Guy, it is now your time to shine, and host the Canon DSLR Speed Challenge!

Wow, thanks for the critique and acknowledgement Jason...I forgot I need to remove the frame and watermark for most these contests.

Here it is in B&W with no watermark...Just for you. :)

I'm sure your exif is in your image, but I do not use an exif viewer...:p

Title in title line: Now, I did NOT name the theme "Classical Elements", it is named "only "Elements". The submission you are referring to does state "Re; Classical Elements...", which I interpret AS the image's title. As with another image posted that has the title "Classical Elements", that too is it's own title...

Trust me, I examined all of this...:p

Matt: there is no written nor unwritten law about the use of borders and watermarks in these competitions. Use whatever your heart desires, I only made mention of these things because they really do annoy me (even my own images I put borders on), but I do not penalize for. And yeah, I like the b&w better than the original.


:cool:

Thank you Jason for a very interesting theme, and I also very much enjoyed your comments. I was happy to read that my image left you "confused and freaked out". It was intended to do just that. I hoped it would be attractive visually but also unsettling.
Congrats Jean-Guy and Matt.
Super images everyone!
