8ball by suzi9mm 8ball by suzi9mm
(to Tommi)
i took this to thank a friend who gave me a couple of great CD's. not surprisingly he plays pool.

i haven't tried anything like this before...i am satisfied, but the reflections were killing me! i used Canon 10D that we bought yesterday. and since today i'm a proud owner of 8ball too:D (Big Grin)

good concept. loving it. and i echo what someone said earlier......Black 8...but the white makes the photo. brilliant

I like it, although I think the reflection could have been more attractive. It looks like a used 8 ball with lots of scratches.

I would have actually liked to have seen more of the 8 ball by using some more diffused light that might give it some contour lighting instead of a bright reflective spot. You know, so it would kind of look like a black moon with a giant 8 stamped on it. :) (Smile)

excellent composition - i love the way you did black on black... it really brings the white & number so much emphasis.

very nice jen. The angle and idea is great. The darkness fits nicely to the 8-Ball!
The light reflection on the Ball is not super duper cool... but it is not really disturbing either.

The magic 8-ball. I lost the 13 ball. It's around somewhere

I like the darkness in this

I think i can see some smoke or something.

this is amazing, it muts be awesome to see it printed.
ph-enix Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2003
very cool! i love the simplicity and the overwhelming blackness. the way the ball blends into the bg is great. that fold of cloth looks like smoke rising from the 8ball - maybe you didn't intend for that, but i think it's a cool effect.
good to see 10D hard at work. ;) (Wink)

i think perhaps there's not enough distinguishment between the 8ball and background. This could probably be resolved by putting emphasis on the shine in the ball.

I like your layout, though. Awesome to push it in the corner like that. Nice job.

Intresting shot...

I hope you are enjoying your new d10 as much as I am, 'cause it really rocks! Now I look forward to a lot more pics from you... ;) (Wink)

very fun. this would be a spantastic poster ^.^ that white spot is really jumping out at me. enjoyable stuff.

Simply amazing and crisp. My father said he wants to hang this behind the pool table in our basement. Take that one as a compliment, he actually commented at all and that means something. Tif

I love this picture, only thing that I would have changed in made the lighting a little softer.

Aivan loistava minimalistic työ. Hauskan näköinen, kun tuntuu, että tuo pallo katsoisi ylöspäin :D (Big Grin) Perhanan komea Thumbs Up

this would make a SPECTACULAR poster in a pool hall! nice work.
superkev Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2003  Professional Photographer
With subjects like this I find it sometimes easier to place the light slightly behind the object pointing slightly forward so that the reflection is out of sight of the camera, and the background is a little more subtle. Light will still spill over the front of the object and give it shape. Experiment! Good idea though.

i like it. i was just playing pool last weekend and would have won if i wouldnt have gotten my friends last ball into the hole by accident before the 8 ball.

Mmmh, I dunno, I'm so boringly traditionalist with pool... Every time I look at it I cant keep from hearing that voice in my head saying: green, greeeeen, the cloth must be greeeeen Psychotic

Anyway, the photo is green, I mean great Laughing

fabianv Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2003
Pool rules.. yes... the white makes the photo, the text could be more to the centre though
adixion Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2003

black 8

but the white makes the photo.

hehe, couldn't help myself :) (Smile)

Hmm... the shot has this kind of dirty feel to it... not what i connect with pool... but that could just be me :) (Smile) The shot itself is very good, but then again, so are you ;) (Wink)

I like the use of empty space in the image... somehow gives it much mroe meaning...
