Citrus Punch

Contributed by L Jett

I took this photo as part of a "painting with light" assignment. I set a long exposure time on the camera and turned off all the lights then used a flashlight to light different parts of the subject. I think it creates great shadow effects.

this is an awesome picture. I really like your choice of colors. i like the greens and the yellows of the fruit. I think that the yellows really come out with the light. I also like the black background in this photograph. That is really cool. i like how you put those random pieces of jewelery around the fruit. that just kinda makes the picture a bit more interesting that just the fruit. I like the angle of the basket and how it goes from corner to corner. that really leads my eyes well. Overall this is a great picture.

Nice work on this project. I think your image composition and choice of objects is good. The metallic objects catch the light well. My only gripe and what keeps this image from being a real work of art, in my opinion, is the lack of real fruit. the plastic limes and lemons look fake and real ones would look much better. All and all you did a good job on this one.

This is a really cool picture, great exposure and the yellow and green colors work well together. the focus is good and the choice of objects all work as well. nice shot.

I like the green and yellow contrast. The dark contrast also adds a lot. I like detail in the lockets and chains as well. I would have made the background a little more visable, but as far as the whole photo goes, i like it alot.

Laura! i really like this photograph! the lighting is very dramatic and creates sensational shadows and really makes the objects pop! The pieces of silver jewelry make the photograph more exciting. The black background eliminates distractions. Great Work!

The shot is nice. The different colors between the lemon and the lime. the jewels add a church like effect that i like. the wooden basket makes me think were where the fruits pick from. Nice shot and overall theme.

This is the best painting with light photo I've seen yet. For the life of me I'm not actually sure how you managed to get the subject so well lit. Great job though
