This would have been a great shot if you had not sized it down so small. 6

I really liked this concept...good job!

I can promise you a higher score if you make sure to make the most of the allowed 640 pixles next time.

I enjoy the idea of this image

Well done - good composition and focus. You should take advantage of the size maximums in challenges, you would certainly earn even higher marks!

Small, boring, shoulda' looked IN the book for inspiration. 3

Hmmm, yes it meets the challenge criteria, and it is cropped well, and it has interesting grain and colour, but it doesn't tell a story as such: I am not emotionally moved by the picture...it doesn't hold my interest...maybe a lack of mystery,story,detail that invites the viewer to spend some time looking at it...?

It's quite a nice capture, but why have you resized it to 350px wide? You'll always be punished for not using the full 640...

Image is too small... try using a bigger version next time!

I find the highlights on the row of books distracting. Might be stronger if focal book were highlighted more.

The view is great but pic tad too small.

Beautifully composed. Though it's not in the title, I would guess you were born in 1981? I think this shot conveys a sense of classiness for some reason. Great job.

Good DOF. Overall, the image is average, but the small size bring the impact down. Go to the Learn section and view the tutorial of preparing an image for the challenge. You should do well in the future. 4

Doesn't really say anything about what happened that year ...

The out of focus area is extremely distracting.

bigger would be better

I wish the pic was larger.

Well, well, .... the year is in the pic, not in the title itself, and a picture of a yearbook? Does not rock me a lot, sorry ...

Take us back to yesteryear by photographing something that defined the year you were born. Start googling, looking through old news papers and magazines, and show us your photographic interpretation of the year of your birth. Your title should should include the year.

Might even get some DNMCs with this ... (but not from me ...)
