For those that don't know...

"Stationery, a shortening, recorded since 1727, of stationery wares (circa 1680), itself derived from stationer "seller of books and paper," 1311, from Medieval Laton stationarius "stationary seller," from Latin statio "station, satnd", is a general name given to paper and office supplies such as envelopes, notepads, pens, pencils, erasers, paper clips, staples, et alia."

Ha... funny how in the voting your shot comes right after the colored pencils in the exact same set up. I really like the idea, but maybe some different colored pens/pencils would make it "pop" a bit more. Nice shot though.

A distant relation to the challenge... too distant.

What I like: Sharp focus, interesting colors.

What I didn't like: I wish it was exactly the tip of each writing device that was exactly in focus.

The transition from the white base to the dark background gives the impression that the photo is not level. Cropping the transtion out might help. The colors, textures, and shadows work well together.

I like this, but I think I would prefer the red and blue pens to be separated by the pencils (metal/wood/metal/wood/metal) for a continuous pattern.

I am sure you would disagree or you wouldn't have entered the photo in this challenge, but IMO DNMC.

Ahhh, pencil projects... I did a big 200+ shot pencil project myself and I learned a load about fields of focus... the durned buggers aren't always flat and in plane with the lens...

Nice variety.
Like the focus, sharp to soft.

This would have been better if you could have got all the end of the pens/pencils in focus

Wonderful DOF, not the most exciting objects.
