I knew you'd come up with something sensational for the contest! The repetition of shadow and form, the cropping and the offset of the image are excellent! What a wonderful idea for a shot, Eve. Lots of curves all around. Best of luck! I'm off to eat my sunny side ups. No kidding! lol

Very pretty - I love the way the "flowers" cast shadows on the eggs and elsewhere... Sunny-side up, indeed... Good luck in the contest!!

Okay. So you're in the Heart of a Storm. Everything is perfectly calm, right? But you know that at any minute that calm is going to go away, and everything is going to be in chaos, and the world around you will literally blow you away. I want to be there.

This really caught my eye and I went back to it several times. What an original compostion with the flower shadows throughout the scene. The blue shade on the background boards is a perfect shade to compliment the eggs.. I really enjoyed this one and hope it does well for you,

Wonderful image, Lyn. I like the way the shadows fall on the eggs and also the "equators" on the eggs themselves! A very good entry for the contest - Good luck!

Lovely, subtle curves all through this image Lyn. good work and good luck. As for you quote I was only saying to Delia the other day that there's nothing as good as a lovely boiled egg and toast soldiers.

Gads almighty, after reading this, I am starving to death. But, what a unique image. You have a sharp eye for what makes a good picture. I find this very appealing. I really like it.

Fantastically original composition LE, you truly do have an eye for an image. There's so much going on here, from the curve of the bowl to the reflection of the curve on the eggs to the diagonal lines of the table top and the reflections of the flowers. Only you could come up with something like this. Good luck with the competition. I faved it, anyway.

This is Eggcellent. And it's making me hungry. Nothing better than eggs, sunnyside up, with pepper and salt, and maybe some bacon and hashbrowns. Yummy. Good luck in the contest.

Great use of space here, Lyn. The "negative space" left unused by the bowl itself is filled quite well with it's shadow. Curves abound here.. but that top "egg" looks suspiciously like a "Pinky" rubber ball, like the kind I played with in grade school. Great post, and good luck in the contest

This is an amazing photo! I love the balance between the flower designs on the bowl and their shadows =)

Life isn't about the number of breaths you take, it's about the moments that take your breath away.

Oops. It would appear that I've made a mistake. Lyn has all her eggs (and no rubber balls) in one basket.. erm.. bowl. The rest of my crit stands fim, though. :o)
