[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at one of the many street-side markets that can be found on a Sunday in various Manhattan neighborhoods. Each of these rectangular cubby holes contains a rolled-up necktie.

In PP: Cropped, reduced highlights slightly, nudge up vibrancy very slightly, increased contrast very slightly.

Hi Sandy,
You have certainly captured the textures & natural colors of this varied collection of ties.I would think it is not that easy to avoid OE. due to their smooth reflective material but you have no problem with that with this image.It really shows,how dominant the color RED is.Well taken IMHO.

Loooove this Sandy!! You really see and enjoy the same kinds of things as me! This would have caught my attention too.
Very nicely cropped and composed.

Hi Sandy,
A symmetrical composition with these rectangular boxes containing these colorful ties!
Perfect lighting and such a sharp and neat presentation.
A great crop!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

You always come up with exceptional ideas and this picture is not an exception either, Sandy!

Love the harmony of colors you managed to pick in here.
The sharpness and POV are amazing, and light is well controlled.

A nice symmetrical composition!

best regards,

A smart observation Sandy,if you will pardon the pun!
No two patterns repeated as far as I can see, and so colourful.
Excellent sharpness throughout.
I like the symmetrical pattern of the boxes with the randomness of the colours and patterns.
Tfs, regards Jean.

P.S. Did you ask permission to take the shot?

A clever and colorful storage requirements.
Different set record very original.

Great! Very and very well seen. I love this diversity of forms and colours in a simetryc image.


Fantastic colourful and sharp image. I love the simplistic nature of the composition – camera looking straight on the subject at 90 degrees, with the frame picking up a complete set of boxes. Nice lighting too – you can see the curvature of the folded ties.

Hi Sandy,

Nothing to fault here. Good sharpness, vibrant color & a humorous title! I like the repetition of the square shapes of the rack & the repeating stripes, squares & circles. Have a nice Sunday!

I notice you have a very good eye for patterns Sandy. The reds in this one make the image ping....well seen.
