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)

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)

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

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.

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

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.

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

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...
