good capture, just the right hand few look out of synch with the pic, loosing balance. Still very good.

Not really parralels (Perspective) Good shot though

A good idea, and very colourful. Not quite so menacing as a previous one I commented on. these look rather friendly; especially the grey one with the broken point.

Barrel distortion?

Looks like when you resized this that you did not keep the aspect ratio the same and squashed the photo a little. Nice perspective though.

Good angel and DOF. Dont know if its lens disorentation or after processing but the dimention seem litle strange, think it makes the image better if anything. Dont know about the exposure but fine image.

Good idea, but the pencils are distored (in processing?)

nice 8

Why do they look so compressed? Sort of like the final frame in a Chinese Karate film. I feel that the yellow marker on the right could have been eliminated to create more symmetry.

I love the perspective and the panoramic feel. It would have been better without the yellow pencil and those on that side.

are they not round?

the distortion is a little distracting, especially given the empty space to the left, but it does have strong parallel lines!

I really like this composition and the colours. Good luck!

Are those oval pencils? I think you have over distorted this.

I like the colors and the focus.

Very good idea. I can overlook a little distortion due to the wide angle of the photo but it becomes distracting to me when I can't seem to find the focus point. The fact that I cannot easily select anything in particular to focus on detracts a little from this composition. Also the bright yellow pencil on the right creates a boundary that should be mimiced on the left of the photo. The intensity of that color seems to draw attention to the lack of balance. Very good idea and a decent attempt. I think if you worked with this more by perhaps put down black construction paper and laid clear plexi over it to remove the wood grain while keeping the reflection, then worked on a little more symmetry and getting a slightly more pronounced focus point/subject this would be a killer shot. As it is I see it as a 5.

nice idea, bad execution imo
03/17/2004 03:08:05 AM
too deformed and maby too croped..
03/17/2004 12:32:18 AM
A nice idea, but i think the photo is a little distorted, the pencils seem elongataed somehow. May be an illusion, but it takes away from the idea.
