Hope you didn't ruin your printer. I really like the angle of approach and the DoF of this shot. Very creative using sandpaper - an excellent technique. I love hieroglyphics and this hit me right away. Simple, yet captures your eye and imagination immediately. Well done!

I like it Granular hieroglyphs. I have a feeling this is just a realy cool sandpaper and we are all being made to look like fools. This has a very unusual peice. Definatel the only one of its kind in the challengs. Very crisp granuals and a very pleasant lighting. I realy like the authintic egyptian feel that the sand gives the image. Wonderfull job. 8

I wish it wasn't blurry on the top or bottom. This idea was interesting and different, and where it IS clear--it's perfect

This is a beautiful picture, though I wish there were less noise toward the top. I do love hieroglyphics, though! Did you actually paint these onto the sand paper or did you find this somewhere? Lovely picture!

The narrow DOF helps this one, nice creativity too.

Good picture. My only criticism is the shallow depth of field.

Altough you chose a part of the parchment which just details ancient egyptian financial records, your delivery of said materials is stellar. Choose a more interesting hyroglyph next time and Ill give you a full 10 and not just the 9 i give you now.

Quite creative. I think I may even try to use sandpaper to create a similar project and make a craft of some kind out of it. I did think that too much of the image was out of focus, but I'm sure that is the way you planned it.
