Great Depth of Field and also my eyes move right through it. It also brings back some delightfull memories. :)

Ah school. I really miss them good naps. Great shot by the way. I really like how the books draw your eye to the main subject.

So many books!

Really good composition - I would also like to see it "back to front" focus on face - books out of focus. Great use of DOF. Looking at it from a commercial point of view it is certainly one I would have used - there is just enough space foreground left side for some text

nice composition. The color of the books carefully chosen would help the final resul. Good the focus choosed and the depth of field.

Great perspective!

Very nice.

really interesting colour choice. I lke your setup, a nice change from the other sleeping students. The dof is good, but would have preferred no front blur (right hand side of photo). still one of my favourites for the challenge.

way too many books for one semester. I like the idea

Great composition and use of depth of field. I think the blown out hightlight at the back of the photo is a bit distracting though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2004 11:51:14 PM
more depth of field would have put the face to be in focus, the books are taking too much attention away from it
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'd love to see the boy more in focus, either in addition to the books or instead of them (not sure which)

ribbon!

Good job, i really like it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2004 09:09:21 PM
This would have been even better in color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2004 04:27:22 PM
I would like to have seen a greater DOF to see the student better. But even so, this is an excellent perspective shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2004 01:32:56 PM
A greater DOF would improve this image, particularly if the subject person was in better focus. Nice angle and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2004 12:50:01 PM
Great composition. I am not sure it would have worked better but if you have any shots with "reverse" DOF (focus on his face and the books out of the DOF) it would probably be good too. 8

interesting angle...great idea. I would have liked to see the man a little more...overal great job!

Nice composition, I like the tunnel effect, dof, angle, and crop. Though asleep I wonder if his hand would be holding the pencil so firmly?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very well done...i love this redish juicy color. Great focus and compozition. Good luck.

Awsome photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the depth of field is missing in the picture.otherwise the composition and the theme are great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2004 06:31:23 PM
good DOF and good complexity of details to show chaos
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2004 04:37:36 PM
with this point of view, and the fact that the guy is blurry while the books are in sharp relief make me feel as if the books are falling on top of him. Took me quite a while to realize he's asleep on the desk. Try putting him as the focal point and not the books

Excellent perspective... I like the dynamics provided by the tilt of the camera. It looks like you have been buried by the books :)

i really lke the perspective here
