Good luck to everyone doing exams. My missus is going through them now... didnt REALLY need me taking pictures!

Taken about 6ft up, on a step ladder, i wanted a different angle, but i'm not sure if it'll come across. I wanted the desk really messy (didnt have to change much!) Couldnt get rid of the noise with NI unfortunately. Forgot out cat had his coat on (we're trying to stop him licking his wounds - hes a recently rescued stray) hes not going to have any street cred now!

Decided Black & white really suited the image, too many colours were distracting.

Ho, hum, just another...
NOT!

Love the cat! (A little disturbed that it appears someone dressed the cat, but...one would have to be entirely bored to do so.) Subtle, but effective. I'll bet this works well as a larger piece.

This is a nice image for boredom. I know i get incredibly bored at night when i am trying to work on some kind of paperwork. I liek how this image was done in black and white and I also liek all the contrast seen in the image. Nice work.

I like the shot, but it says more about hard work and study and late hours than anything about boredom

Bored - but still working. Maybe needs a few elastic band balls, screwed up papers, doodles and paperclip art to get to bored! However, I really like the image and the angle of the picture. Simple but effective lighting. Good cat shadow.

just my opinion, but he looks more occupied/busy/frustrated, rather than bored. But other than that, a nice image-6

B&W definately suits the shot and the shadow of the cat emphasis the boredom aspect of the person studying. Great angle too, I reckon you have captured boredom down to a T
