Well, I flipped the curtains onto my dining table and lined up the colours. Put External flash to the right side of the Crayola's and attached another one to the camera. Then I converted the image from RAW to TIF. Adjusted colour levels and added USM filter, thatís it.

The Crayola's always seem to make a good picture;-)

Simple is beautiful. Nice background, nice lighting, good composition. Send this to Crayola!

The color is fantastic. I love how the blue is still bright and bold with out washing out the other colors even though its the center of focus.

Great capture of colors and form!

I really like this composition and the lighting is great. The only thing I would change is the background to a crisper white without texture.

i like the photo, the colors are vibrant and the shot is very well taken. ive seen many crayon photos and i tend to only vote high on unique ideas. but this is the best crayon and the most appealing color shot that i have seen so far 9

well-built composition. The shadows of the crayons could have been more brought out, I think, but still a great photo.

This would have been better with a high key setup I think. Not bad tho.

Nice composition. I think this will do well, especially as the competition isn't that great. What could make this better? I think the curve of the background is too abrupt, it would have been nice for it to be less noticable. The texture of the paper/cloth in the forebround is distracting. I'm no pro on the subject, but I guess you would have to elevate your subject to get rid of this. The hard shadows are also distracting. Again, I'm no pro, but I guess you would want to diffuse your lighting. Keep practising and you'll get it.

Not too bad a still-life attempt but light still a bit harsh and it's not overly compelling. Nice and sharp though.

Great idea and great balance. Personally I would like the background to be a little more white.
