    This is from a negative and a heck of a lot of working one piece at a time.

    Let me tell you before you ask, why there so much empty space... Christmas can be a very empty and desolate time of the year for some folks. I hope the emptiness gives a feel of lonely, empty but also dignity.. I have no idea if it does or not, but that was the plan.

    I don't like it. the grain is disgusting, and I don't like the greenish brown tint on the edge of the light.

    Fair enough...

    Of course in defense of the picture the grain is a part of it. But that's okay, it isn't for everyone. No single photograph ever is. As always the image speaks for itself.

    Just a passing thought, not a defense... Why would anyone use a 70 year old camera? If all he wanted to do was to make a plastic picture. Now that should start a fire.

    That is a unique image....the tangerine as the symbol of the season....and yes the season can be lonely... I wonder if there would be more of a connection to a wider audience if the gumdrops were in the traditional holiday colors of red and green...The purple and black gives almost a halloween feel to it.

    An interesting travel into the holiday theme....

    as for composition and form...well done. nice halo of light around the scene...Christ in the manger-esque. Your depth experience of the world shows in this work. I dont think a 20 something would have enough breadth to take a concept such as this and come up with a compostition which encompases so many little details of imagery, whether by purposeful design or happy accident.

    I do like this photo. I like the color of the fruit placed in a dark gloomy place. There is something "special" to this photo.

    I love the grain, of course. This is a nice one. Only thing is my staunch anti-pink mindset which keeps me from liking those gumdrops. ;) But the background, the emptiness, the graininess...all spot on.

    99% of my color is 1940 tint style. Color film is for weddings and family parties not for real photography.... Now don't tell anyone I said the other isnt real. It just isnt as real.

    Acceptance made for any artistically applied color.... I kinda meant memory maker color. The baby in the crib, the bride and groome kissing. That kind of color film. There is nothing wrong with that either it's just a different ball of waxpaper.

    And I wish I had your talent with color.

    And Terri you know I see you with a graflex in a world war two night club walking around in a slinky evening dress.

    Now you going to have me seeing you in a tight dress with fringe and doing the charleston. A kodak vest pocket folder on the table with the bootleg gin.
