You continue to make me proud to be your son!

But, I must ask... Were you hanging from the celing to take that picture. And, at your age... is that safe?

:)

Ed Isaacs 2/17/2004 6:16:58 PM

Thanks, Steve.

It was done with a wide angle lens attachment.

Love you and proud to be your Dad!

Karim Khalil 2/18/2004 10:51:40 AM

I think this picture represents peace because the tomato sitting by itself in the bright sun. #385097

Brett 2/18/2004 10:52:06 AM

It looks nice when you have the red up against the white and black background. This picture shows the true depth of the surronding objects. #385098

Kevin D. Lee 2/18/2004 10:52:47 AM

It is very calm and peaceful. But, it seems like the tomato is about to fall off the shelf into a black abyss. #385101

Pat H 2/18/2004 10:54:15 AM

I think that the angle at which the tomato picture was taken is interesting. Also I feel like the sun symbolizes the good of the world beaming in to create life. #385103

Will L. R 2/18/2004 10:54:33 AM

Your image makes me feel happy. The images is very peaceful and relaxing. Thank you very much Ed. #385104

Kevin Buckley 2/18/2004 10:54:51 AM

I'm your son's student. I love the picture. The angle is great and I enjoy how everything is black and white except for the tomato. It really captures its essence. Great job!
:-D #385105

Meaghan P. K 2/18/2004 10:55:30 AM

I see a tomato on a windowsill (insightful, I know). The brightness of the red in contrast to the dark of the windowsill calls your attention to the tomato. Congrats on a photo well taken, Mr. Isaac's Dad! #385106

D M. P 2/18/2004 10:57:28 AM

how did you get that picture?! were you haning from the ceiling or something? I really thought that was a cool picture- the light balance was perfect and the tomato(or orange as I tend to call them)was a perfect center for the photo. I hope I can be a trapeeze artist, like you must be, and take pictures as a well as you do, Mr Isaac's Dad. Abyss #385108

Diana 2/18/2004 10:57:56 AM

I like how its shown from a diff. angle!Congrats! great picture! #385109

Alex R 2/18/2004 10:58:21 AM

It looks pretty nifty, but I don't get it. What is the point of the picture? It looks like an abstract drawing which is cool. #385111

Alex R 2/18/2004 10:59:29 AM

I think this picture is REALLY cool becuagdfdfgdse it makes you focus on the only colored thing in the picture, the tomatoe. The Angle you took it at Ed was really really really awesome becuase I havent seen many pictures like that. CONGRATS ON WINNING!!!! #385115

Kyle I. M 2/18/2004 11:01:52 AM

Interesting picture because its a tomato on a windowsill (strange). It makes you focus on the tomato which has the only color. Kewl Picture :) #385117

L S. S 2/18/2004 11:05:38 AM

I like the picture because there is a good color contrast between the black, red, and white. It gets your attention because you dont know what it is at first. #385126

J L. Solon 2/18/2004 11:07:16 AM

I liked this picture because it brings out the contrast between the red and the black and white. The red makes you think about it, and why it is there. I like it because it draws your attention to the red and you wonder why it is sitting on the window sill and what the point of putting it there was. #385131

Ed Isaacs 2/18/2004 6:38:36 PM

Thanks all for the great comments. What a nice surprise! Ed #385618

Jen 2/20/2004 10:24:54 AM

It's a great picture. I like how its at a different angle #388272

Patricia A. Kuniega 2/22/2004 7:47:58 PM

I'm so glad I arrived late and had the opportunity to read all these fun and fascinating analyses of your work Ed! Everyone should have the benefit of such terrific critiques! I wondered myself about what you were hanging from to get this shot... but decided it doesn't matter! It's a fabulous perspective on a tomato! Congratulations! #391667

Ed Isaacs 2/22/2004 9:47:21 PM

As you can figure out, Pat, my son teaches computer science in Junior High. The current segment is digital photography, so the timing was perfect. Before long we'll probably see a whole new batch of galleries. At any rate, glad you liked my tomato shot. And thanks for commenting. Ed #391757

Murtaza H. Saeed 3/1/2004 1:23:09 PM

Heather M. 3/16/2004 8:21:50 AM

Wow! This is such a great picture...I really like the angle that is projected and the shadow of the day.i think this a great picture of an ordinary apple. It makes the apple look "alive" and not just an "ordinary apple." #426976
