Coke

Contributed by M Silas



I'm really proud of this picture. I took it at the park in front of Calera High School. I used the macro lens to get the close up of the coke bottle. Unfortunately, I had to sacrifice the background quality a little bit. I love the concept of this shot more than anything else. Even though this picture didn't come out the best, I love the shot itself.

This is solid Myers. I love me some swing sets. I love me some coke. Swings + coke = chill. MH SPHS

I really like the way that the light shines through the coke bottle and shows the condensation inside of it. I also like how the red contrasts against the green grass and how the focus is on the bottle.

This picture is really cool. I like how it almost has a story within it. I also really like how the sun looks! Although I wish the coke bottle was more focused, this is still a really great picture!

This picture definetly caught my eye. I love the lighting and how bright this picture is. Eventhough the glare is an imperfection to the picture it makes it different and interesting. Really like how your eyes are drawn to the whole picture. Great job!

This picture really caught my eye because of the bright sun and the sun spots coming off of the coke bottle. I also love the texture of the leaves on the ground against the seemingly smooth texture of the coke bottle.The simplicity of the sky and the ground seem so overdone and yet you managed to give them flare, well done!

I like how you focused on the coke bottle. How the sun is shinning focusing on the coke bottle. I like how you chose where to take the picture. Over all the picture is really amazing. Mbau SPHS

I love the contrast between the bottle and the grass. The sun reflects nicely on the plastic, making the bottle stand out as the subject of the photo. Nice job including the sun in the picture as well; otherwise I might have wondered where the light was coming from. Overall an amazing picture!

I really love the background of this picture and how the sun turned out to be. It would have been awesome to flip the bottle around so that the Coke logo was visible but I really like the concept that you were going for in the picture. It is very bright and happy like a sunny day!

I like the foreground focus of the picture and the coke bottle in in good focus. Also i like how the bottle is shimmering from the sun.

I really like this picture! I love how the bottle is in focus. This photo is simple which makes it very unique! I like how you can see the details in the grass also.

I like the brightness of the sun in the sky. The way the light sort of radiates of from the picture is nice. Good photo. SB SPHS

The idea of this photo seems deep enough to create an interesting concept, but I think that overall the quality could have been improved. I personally can't think of a way to fix it, but I agree that the background is the week point, and maybe it should have been changed to something simpler. It seems as the the bottle is giving your eyes a direction to look, but the line in the grass just above it recreates that and brings your attention away from the focal point.

I really love this picture. It conveys a powerful message about pollution (whether you intended that or not) because every thing is so crisp and clear and beautiful... and here's this nasty abandoned coke bottle soaking up the sun. I LOVE how the sun looks in this picture and also how crisp the lines of the swing set are. Great

I love the perspective in this picture; taking the shot low to the ground, close to the bottle. The sun showing up in the background is a nice touch. The colors in the photo really stand out - nice job.

Love this photo, i think you caught this scene at the perfect time of day. Wish the bottle was more focused but still, great picture.

I like the sunlight in the background and the coke bottle in the foreground. The swing sets look cool in the back of this picture.

I think the background looks fine! Usually I'm not a big fan of the sun being in the shot when it's bright like that outside because it can be a little blinding, but it definitely works for this picture.. and I even think the background would be missing something without. Ordinary subject, extraordinary photo!

I like how the contrasting colors make the coke bottle stand out. I also like how the light was captured, creating an interesting focal point. This piece has a great composition.

This is amazing! I don't think you had to sacrifice much, except maybe the sun makes it difficult to easily brighten the rest of the photo. Great concept and the rays of the sun turned out really well. Good job! - AF SPHS

I do not like the brightness of the sun in the background; my eyes zoom onto the sun when I look at this. There are many elements in this photo that could work good alone but clash when put together. I don’t put much focus onto the coke bottle. This photo does not interest me very much.

Very creative work :) I like pictures like this one, especially those which are performaed in black-and-white style. Black-and-white photo allow to show all the beauty of such things :)

I like this photo because it takes an everyday object like a coke bottle and changes it to make you feel something. With the sun spot rainbow effect, it completes this picture.
