comments from Kristy:

This vibrant, slimy, creepy yet alluring photo is part of a series of 2 taken at Grand Prismatic Pool in Yellowstone. The martian like pool was beautifully colorful and abstract.

Is it too "gross"? Are there too many of the colors not widely seen as appealing? Is the subject matter just boring? Any and all feedback is welcomed and greatly appreciated!

Thank you for the feedback, Robert. Poor Pantone 448C. :) I, like some of the others, love it for its biological strangeness and composition... That being said, I absolutely see how it does not appeal to all. As suggested, I am hoping now the more monochromatic version will allow the composition to be the focus. Thank you! K

The colors pop more in A. I like it!

A. Kristy, I too love this shot for its biological strangeness and composition and I personally would take great pleasure in hanging this in my bathroom (previous comment notwithstanding.) You asked the question, "Are there too many of the colors not widely seen as appealing?" And I answered objectively with documented fact. The thing is, because I know about 448C and its maligned fellow hues, one of my art missions is to champion its redemption. I think you beat me to it. I choose A because to me it really is the most appealing of the three. Now end the poll so I can click the heart! I'll be watching this one closely. Best of luck!

A. Let's break it down: Great subject; Well-composed (pun intended); Palette? Not so great. Where would you hang it? Kitchen? no. Bathroom? um, no. The reason maybe? The infamous Pantone 448C (Google it). I suggest trying different colorways with this image and then I honestly feel like it would end up as part of someone's living room or office décor because I think it is a really cool shot!

There are definitely some interesting and unique elements with this photograph that have potential. I'm not big on the color. Maybe experiment with the hue or white balance sliders a bit and see what you come up with?

NOT boring! Not gross! I really love the color and texture. It's got that thing that abstract paintings have-where you can just stare and enjoy discovering different aspects of the work.

Hi, Kristy :) As a former biologist, I love this image. It reminds me of the extreme microbes living in hot pool habitats in Yellowstone and New Zealand. For me, it's wonderful and makes for an enticing conversation piece. :)

I love it! The colors and subject matter are what make it interesting! I could totally see this piece in any number of homes, or on any type of wall. The gold color almost gives the "foil" illusion, which is really interesting.

I like it! I don't see it as gross. I see it more as an intriguing shape and color.

I like it. I think it could work. The only thing I might play with is the levels as Kamala recommended.

I think it's lovely - the sulphur is a big part of these natural spring formations and makes it identifiable to me (it also reminds me a bit of a lacy agate!)

Very interesting textures, it reminds me of a moon landscape or any # of natural formations. (but I'm not a scientist :) I agree to try different colors to see what looks best.

The texture and color are interesting! I'm sure it's not for everyone, but the right person will love it (as the former biologist pointed out!). I'd love to see a couple of coordinating photos that could be hung in a series. That way it makes sense in context...
