this is the first time i try to photograph something i can set up, it was interesting to have control over everything, hope you like it. Shot in my living room using ambient light. Used a long exposure to avoid any bright reflections on the pencils.

This is actually quite a clever shot. helped by the title, but it stands up OK on its own - probably one of the bestter ones in the challenge - should finish well. 7

My pick of the bunch. Well done and very creative!

Very clever, great creativity. Perhaps the downsizing of the image, would like to see it a tad sharper.

More I look at it the more I like it, bumping up. Hope it does well.

Wow very good. Incredibly creative. Probably the best in the challenge :)

Wonderful take on the challenge. The black pencil is getting a bit lost on my screen.

Nice idea!
10/17/2007 10:11:17 PM
Simple, but I like it. Creative too. Good balance. I like the use of the black, gray and white pencils. I predict this will be in the top three (or it should be). Good luck!

love it lol. I even love the fact you made the different pencils different colours.

How did you do it? I'm thinking the "background" consists of more than one sheet of black paper?

The subject matter of this shot plays well with the audience thats judging it. The best part of this picture is the use of white, black and grey pencils. Well done

great idea, I wish it looked more like a photograph and less like a graphic composition. 7
