That is creative. I wondered how it was done. From where you guys come up with this kind of ideas!! Now, I would definately like to try this technique, it kinda cool.

I love this as a general image, but don't get quite as much a rhythm flow as from some of the others. I can definitly see it postersized, tho!

Nice use of b&w. I like how the dominoes cast a shadow on each other. How did you suspend them?

I know how you did this. :) Neat trick; the lighting is a nice touch. Very mathematical also.

My favorite so far. Great layout, even down to the thought process of lining up the numbers. The shadows, B&W really make this the 10 that it is. Great effort and compostion.

it can be so easy sometimes - great concept! Lighting could be softer and i don't think the regular (regarding to the numbers) placing adds anything - 7

Excellent effect! The angle + lighting really make them look as if they defy gravity.

Well executed. Way to fool the eyes. I like the shadows.

nice set up, perhaps a little too centered. an off centered shot may of gave it more interest.
