Nice arrangement! I like the graduation of the colors. More technical and precise people would have had all of the pencil labels lined up or not shown at all. I am guessing a wider aperture was used... f3.5, f4?? I may be wrong but it looks like the focal point is not quite on the circle.


Had to revisit this one to see what caused the blur. I now see it is not the f stop but it was the shutter speed. 1/25 hand held probably. Very slow shutter to use handheld. I have heard that the rule of thumb for handholding a shot is 1/focal length. So for a 50mm lens your longest shutter speed hand held should be about 1/50. Keep on shooting!

you've got a gap in your circle. simple compositions like that can be really effective, but they have to be spot on.

I personally am immune by now to the sight of these pencils that appeared so much in the recent challenges

Can feel the impact. A little brighter will be better.
