The title is more fun than the picture. The 3 negative spaces in the picture are pretty simple too. And so is the background. Good sharp pencils. 4 Journey

the clarity and crispness of this picture are awesome--it reminds me (other than the obvious!) of some show i used to see as a kid like sesame street or electric company (can't remember which) where the big everyday items used to float thru the air in space--very cool. this pic would be a 10, but the negative space seems so balanced... so a 9.99999 for you!

I don't really get the concept... Little too contrived for my taste, and nothing about it really grabs me. 4 sjgleah

Awesome! This photo made me laugh :). I'm not sure I like the rotational symmetry, I think if the pencils were at different angles I'd like it more. But the strong lighting and the background are cool :)

Cool effect. I like the idea. Placement and angle are good. Lighting and focus are great. The only thing that stands out to me as odd is the blemish in the eraser at the bottom right of the photo. unless the rest of the eraser is like that or worse, maybe rotating the pencil to a different spot of the eraser could have avoided showing this. The background is absolutely great. Very nice job and good luck in the challenge.

Excellent use of the rectangle, great control of negative space

I am amazed at how creative people can be with something as simple as a pencil.
Your idea here works well.

I liked your composition very much. Your pencils are the most elegant, and least used by other photographers this week. I only wonder about the crack in the right side pencil's eraser. One of my 3 favorites to win this week.

good light/color rendition. how did u suspend the pencils? might be a tad over sharpened, but it's a clever idea.

I lost the idea somewhere with this. Kind of plain. sharp but no real subject I can see to make it interesting

Composition - quite good
Technical Aspects - quite good
Meets Challenge - yes
Visual Impact / Originality – high
Other suggestions – cut in eraser keeps this from a 9

Cute title, well taken photo. (Where's the black cube thing?) 7 Swash

I think this would have been superb with one of the pencils removed. But that’s only my opinion… Good luck…(7)

This is a technically very nice photo... I can't see much that I would change about the photo. I love the 'space' theme and you have done a very good job of capturing that sense in this image. I think that the eraser on your lower pencil is defective. I would definitely take that back and exchange it for a good one :) - jmsetzler

Can't think of anything it needs to improve. I like the "simplicity" of hte shot, and how the pencils leave the frame. karmat

boldly goes but not far enough

Cute, and highly graphical. Love the texture of the brown pencils.

Wow be me the one to say too much saturation.

This should have a "how'd they do that" section when the votes are all in. innovative idea, good set up. May be a little harsh on the lighting and soft on focus. Not bad at all though. =6 syamjonimi ;-D

Is the eraser cracked on the lower pencil? Creative idea, but that line/crack in the eraser is a distraction.

Cracking picture. Cracked eraser <wink>. Love your composition and lighting though. Well done! FloYdage
