Jack, white on white is not easy, not even for the experts. The real challenge in it is to retain definition of all the objects, including their texture. Like me, you kept the definition, but also like me, you lost the texture. However, neither one of us failed. What happened in your photo, I think, is that it's slightly over-exposed. I also had this happen. Can you bracket your exposures with your camera? Both of us should remember to do this.

We haven't failed. We've succeeded in gaining knowledge.

Sergio, yes to "high-key" photos, and I really should have mentioned this in the challenge. Additionally, did you telepathically send that suggestion of using the subject of the challenge in the title? You must have--it popped into my head out of nowhere before even seeing your post.

Your photo retains every bit of texture in the snow, something that's not easy to do with a surface that's reflecting all over the place. Good job!

I just saw a banner ad with brown eggs in a brown basket and a brown background. I would post it here, but it was done in Shockwave.

None, well maybe +1ev

I sort of cheated, I put the bulb in front of a white card then lit the card with two more bulbs in reflectors. I think the exposure was something like f8 at 1/4000(from camers LCD), my exif data got messed up somehow in photoshop and was saying some very strange nonexposurey numbers.

Disco, nothing wrong with your choice of subject matter...a white flosser on a white counter....sounds like it fits the challenge to me!

Re: the yellow cast. This is a result of your white balance not matching the light source. Did you set it to tungsten or just use auto and let the camera make the choice?

EDIT: I just realized that I made the assumption you used a digital camera. With film cameras, filters do a similar thing that WB does.

In the year 2163, Canon will announce a camera that can overcome that problem. Remember, you heard it here first!
