This was a brilliant idea. I think it would be even better tilted up slightly towards the viewer.

This was what I would have liked to have done had I participated this week. I love how your shot came out! 9!

In my opinion this would have worked better for the closing challenge. The motion blur makes it look like the book is closing not opening.
Very nice shot though.

I had tried a book and mine would have looked so bland in comparison to this! Glad I didn't submit it. Good job!
