Thanks to all. Never imagined a photo of Post Its would be my first ribbon. Thrilled nonetheless!

As I strive to improve as a photographer, I will look back on this challenge as the one that really opened my eyes to creative lighting, which obviously "makes" this photo.

Great idea, nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Yep. This works. I like it. Would make a nice graphic for use in several stock scenarios and it's a clever concept that is photographed well (exposure, lighting, etc...). Good luck in the challenge.

01/18/2008 09:34:11 PM

A very nice twist to the over-used concept.

Seems a bit dark, but a pleasing composition.

Wow, Post-Its can be pretty when you arrange and light them properly!

Interesting concept. I'm not sure it makes for an interesting photo, however.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 04:14:25 PM
very creative and almost perfect lighting,bravo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 03:20:11 PM
Really innovative and beautifully shot. It almost looks computer generated (raytraced) because the lighting is so tightly controlled but I love the elegant shadowing, especially in the lesser lit 'blade' which provides sufficient diversity in the piece without detracting. Brilliant stuff.

01/16/2008 01:55:23 PM
Original idea, and well executed. Congrats.
