While making this photo I got a lot of respect for ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Jpoole as a ribbon winner and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Soup as he tried this in the first Deja Vu challenge. I just changed the pencil (hope the voters don't mind too much) and the light completely different. Hope it works.

Good job. Better matching colors than original. IMAGE_ID is a good way to quickly find the original, and should be a requirement in future Deja Vu challenges

I like yours better than the original. Your whites are whiter, your blacks are blacker and your tack is sharper. Nicely done!

I haven't seen the original but not sure how it could top this. Good work.

I did take a look at the original because your entry arose my curiosity. It is all about the angle of shooting which is how I *think* this illusion is achieved. Anyway, love how the white of your main subject realllllly pops off the deep black backdrop. Your composition just pops visually and the illusion you present to us in the composition holds the viewer's attention as we scratch our heads and think "now how did he/she do that?!":-) Lighting and level of details are great in this one. Love how you added a slightly different touch with the pencil being the the same blue tone of the push pin. Visually the color is appealing not to mention it too pops off the white backdrop it rests on.
