Nina Shields 4/9/2008 7:46:04 AM

Patrick, wonderful exposure work and use of lighting regardless of the actual subject; very intriguing and creative! Well done! #5766241

Shannon D. Miller 4/9/2008 8:37:02 AM

Erika Haight 4/9/2008 10:51:48 AM

This is just YUMMY Patrick!! erika #5766679

Emiel Van Hemelrijck 4/9/2008 11:07:58 AM

Rajeev Kashyap 4/9/2008 11:50:42 AM

Wonderful Capture Patrick! #5766891

Daniella Puente 4/9/2008 12:55:57 PM

Very cool detail and composition Patrick :) #5767136

Alexis Yobbagy 4/9/2008 1:12:40 PM

FABULOUS and FUN too!!! I think they're keys but chocolate tastes better!!! Another stellar work my great friend!!! #5767200

Margaret R. Barry 4/9/2008 1:14:10 PM

Wonderful capture, Patrick. I think they look like keys too! #5767208

Lynne Morris 4/9/2008 1:54:31 PM

Beautiful capture Patrick, my first thought are mint chocolates? #5767301

Jennifer L. Alder 4/9/2008 3:39:53 PM

Great perspective and light! Look like keys to me... :) #5767502

Eivor Kuchta 4/9/2008 4:16:42 PM

Looks like gold metal (though we had hoped for chocolate). Maybe a part of a music instrument? #5767569

Joseph N. DiGilio 4/9/2008 4:42:14 PM

This is fun. I like guessing games. I think they are brass keys. If they were fine Dutch chocolate they would have been eaten before you had a chance to photograph them. #5767667

Wanda Judd 4/9/2008 5:09:51 PM

It really does look like fine chocolates..but knowing how clever you are, it's probably your flatware or your golden dinner plates...

I, too hope you are feeling better.. #5767793

Patricia Ronan 4/9/2008 5:15:07 PM

Lovely light and gold colour Patrick, not at all sure what it is:) #5767810

Martie Last 4/9/2008 5:15:34 PM

I'm guessing a stack of keys. It was fun to guess. #5767813

Judy A. Lawhon 4/9/2008 5:45:59 PM

Looks like keys to me also...but regardless, its very well done, Patrick!! #5767920

Ken Smith 4/9/2008 6:20:47 PM

It's too bad they weren't one ounce gold coins...then you'd have an even better camera! Love the colors!! #5768055

Reynaldo D. Reyes 4/9/2008 6:39:25 PM

I love these whazzit games... Let's see, How about a stack of golden pancakes???...LOL! This is a nice image though with beautiful lighting. #5768142

Janet Daniel 4/9/2008 7:19:49 PM

Goldilocks? LOL This is just terrific, Patrick! #5768284

Nancy (Peaches) Harker 4/9/2008 8:10:52 PM

Well, from the thumbnail I thoght it was french toast and syrup LMAO
Then I enlarged it and saw writing, so I am guessing keys.
Fantastic tones and lighting Patrick!!! #5768490

Teresa A. Burnett 4/9/2008 9:32:03 PM

My guess is keys. Love the pretty shiny gold!! Too bad it isn't the real thing!! #5768716

frank w. degenhardt 4/9/2008 10:24:52 PM

Patrick- Hello there and a good day to you my friend. I got to agree with the majority on this, that its keys. I can see some lettering ( at least I think its lettering) on the bottom key,but can't make it out.
Bright, gold keys. Lighting, clarity, colors, details, textures all done sensationally.
Have yourself a most wonderful day, take care, be safe. #5768808

Bill Wyatt 4/10/2008 3:28:52 AM

Terrific light and colors wonderful close up work!! #5769392

Susan Weisensel 4/10/2008 8:35:45 AM

I'm with everyone also, KEYS,. Super image Patrick. #5770514

Karen Engelbreth 4/10/2008 11:49:09 AM

Wonderful golden Capture, Patrick!


Mike Clime 4/10/2008 2:37:05 PM

Nice capture, Patrick! Unless you are very wealthy, this must be chocolate. #5771840

Sam Britt 4/10/2008 4:43:55 PM

At first glance I thought it was exquisite chocolate wrapped in gold foil, but looking closer I think it's a stack or gold keys. It's a great photo, whatever it is! #5772264

Patrick Rouzes 4/10/2008 5:43:00 PM

They are Keys, everyone!!! Thank you all for playing along!!! Thanks also for the compliments!!! #5772416

Steve J. Schoolcraft 4/10/2008 5:55:47 PM

Nice one Patrick and no, I couldn't guess right without a hint. #5772466

Sue Marshall 4/10/2008 5:57:49 PM

Yes, keys that is what I was going to say Patrick!!! LOL J/K I am horrible at guessing games!!
Love the gold tones and lighting!! :-) #5772478

Kitty R. Rodehorst-Hanna 4/11/2008 1:33:55 PM

BUT BUT BUT!!!!!!! I didn't get to play!!!! It's all the doctors fault because he wouldn't let me play on my puter and because of that I missed ALL the fun you had with this awesome image of the KEYS!!!!! That was my very FIRST thought too!!!!! Thanks a HUGE BUNCH for the thought and giving it to me!!!!! Are they the keys to your safety deposit box at Fort Knox KY? And they are now mine????? hehehehe Ma #5775643

David Pratt 4/11/2008 6:09:38 PM

Well done Patrick. You must have robbed a bank to get all this gold. Glad to see your feeling better. #5776746

Jim Baines 4/11/2008 6:44:14 PM

Exceptionally well done, Patrick! Nice guessing game too! I got in a little late so was able to cheat! #5776865

JO ANN CLEVELAND 4/12/2008 6:39:58 AM

Keys?? It also looks like wrapped chocolate!

Ohhh, I just read your comment above, it IS keys!

Now that's kool my friend, love it!

jo ann c #5778255

Sandra R. Alvey 4/13/2008 2:13:20 PM

Well my first thought was "GOLD INGOTS"!!! WOOHOO! My big bro is loaded! Then I realized that they were keys. LOL! Oh well, there goes my alternate retirment plan. :D

Gorgeous work Patrick! #5782745

Gary Lange 4/17/2008 12:04:16 PM

Patrick, I think they're stacked keyes. It certainly reminds me of some great French Toast with syrup, what with the effects and lighting. Outstanding!! #5800393

Laura E. Swan 4/26/2008 10:38:01 PM

I'm with Kitty. I wanted to play!!! Pfffttt! ;) Lol to Sandi as well. TOO FUNNY!

When we were growing up our Mom always made us laugh. No matter what sized gift we'd give her (ring sized box or jumbo) she'd always guess, "A PAIR OF SLIPPERS?".

So even thought I think they are the KEYS to the GOLDEN CITY, I will say SLIPPERS! Ha! -Laura #5846370
