I like this photo! Very nice colours. Good composition (diagonal lines). I know it's stupid but somehow it looks a bit "hazy". As of the lightness was punched up a tad too much. A bit more contrast would be better for my taste. Anyway, still a very good photo.

Beautiful abstract art, with nice lighting (glares not too strong) and nice angle on the diagonal.

Nice idea. Only thing I see that needs improvement is the reflection of light on the pencils in the foreground. That distracts a little.

nice concept and lovely colours

should take out the light reflection but still nice

Nice photo. Focus is very good. Seems like it should be just a bit brighter. (probably just me).

Lovely idea and good execution. Lighting is great except for those slight reflections.
08/21/2002 10:16:00 AM
Good color.

I really love the colours (sorry for the British spelling :-) ! And the slant is perfect. Great picture.

Visually attractive, stunning in fact. There is something about the angle of the pencils that creates a distortion causing the rectangle to appear unsymmetrical. Sort of parallelogram-ish. This is just odd and causes my eyes to do some quirky things but, it's not actually distracting from the photo. It's a bit griainy and soft (I found that to be a problem for me too this week) and some of the reflection on the pencils to the lower left is distracting. I like this =7 syamjonimi ;'-D

Very nicely done. I like the soft lighting and choice of colors. Perfect composition/lines. Great work! 9

That is really cool. And it doesn't even matter that there isn't any ONE pencil sticking out because the pattern of pencils and colours speaks for itself. Great job!

Very pretty. There was one thing that bothered me. Peach and pink aren't in the "prism". However, I looked it up and Prismacolors online and found out that that is the physical name of the colored pencils, so all is good. Very pretty colors, and attractive display of them. you did a nice job keeping glare to a minimum and there are no distracting shadows. It's pretty simple, but very nice. Good luck in the challenge.

very pleasing to the eye. Not very exciting but well taken and conceived

This picture makes my eyes just go back and forth over and over it again . 8.

great colors.
08/19/2002 03:57:00 PM
I like the color gradation effect with the pencils.
08/19/2002 11:58:00 AM
I knew somone was ging to take this shot. its hard to tell but it appears a bit dark, Id guess you over compensated for reflections.
08/19/2002 10:57:00 AM
nice but a bit boring, sorry... : )

Great image, a real standout effort.
