This is actually pretty cool. I like the angle of the rabbit ears and the overall composition. One thing I noticed that I'm not sure about is that there seems to be quite a bit of glare on the screen and a few parts of the TV surface. I am not sure if this was intended, but perhaps could have been avoided by diffusing the light source yet more or bouncing it in where the glare would have been reduced. It seems a pretty minor nitpick.

I like how you worked to keep the lighting in somewhat unnatural straight lines on the floor. Great depth too!

this is a really great idea. it got voted way lower than it deserved. I think that the main improvement that could be made is the angle - think about the lines in the shot. as this is, all the lines are pretty much parallel, heading out of the shot. from a lower angle, the lines would converge to a point within the composition. try to use the lines to keep the viewer's eye within the frame.

On of the more creative entries, I think. Also, I like the overall feel and minimalism of the shot.

Your contrast is good between the dark barkground and the grain in the tv picture. The texture of the foreground is also done pretty well as an added compostitional point. As a photo, I didn't find it to be a really compelling image.

So perfect. Great out of the box thinking.

this is a great idea, but why isn't there any grain in the blacks? this could've been a 10

This is not really image grain. I think if you had added noise to the whole picture it might have worked.

The challenge was to have image grain in your photo - not a photo of white noise on tv with no image grain in the rest of the shot.
