Panasonic DMC-FZ50       9th place, 65 points
1/30s, f3.2, ISO 100, 75mm, Normal Program, Pattern, flash
 
Post-Processing: crop,levels,vibrance/saturation,brightness/contrast, clone out,size,save for web.       Extra Info: Iīm not sure the caption is the right word for this one, sounds a little funny to me. Itīs a "knife" you use to cut a cake, and itīs a copy (made in tin) of an old thing ( swingle ?) made in wood,used in production of linen.

    Surely, Thomas again ;-) same comments as in your Main pic (if I am making some mistake, please take this as a great cumpliment :-), and also this time the subject setting is perfect, very dynamic (and the subject, being an everyday thing, is very interesting, too).
TT again and that makes a double for me, well done!! :-)

    Thomas, Sorry I made my comment hard to understand.

I will try again. You have shot this so the object is alone against a stark white background. This helps us concentrate on the object and it is beautiful and you have shot it beautifully. So this is a terrific shot.

For this challenge though about an Everyday object I found this lack of background disturbing. I needed to understand the 'context' for this object. What is it used for? Where does it normally sit? I had that from your extra info, but the true test of one of these challenges is if we can get the message through the picture alone.

So an example of this shot WITH context would be the cake knife embedded in a cake. We would still be able to admire the craftsmanship of the maker and the photographer whilst seeing the object in context.

It is always a fine balance between having no distracting elements and losing context. For this challenge I think the loss of context detracts more than you gain through having no distractions.

So it is a criticism that applies to this shot in THIS challenge in MY eyes.

    beautiful object beautifully shot. The decontextualisation of teh shot though detracts from it for THIS challenge.

    This is beautifully set up but the subject itself calls to mind the saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
