My goal was to work with the concept of infinity as it applies to Pi. This pile of ribbon symbolised that for me.

Printed out a series of numbers and cut them out. If you look closely you'll see repeating numbers. This was bound to happen because I cut out 8 stips of the first (50?) numbers of pi. Adjusted levels in Photoshop and sharpened once.

Jacko, This is a great concept and you pulled it off very well. It also clearly meets the challenge.

The one thing that stands out for me is the blank backside of your strips. Did you consider printing on both sides? As if you didn't already give yourself enough work. Keeping it pretty much black and white works well making it very clean and easy to understand.

I like your composition quite a bit. There is a nice combination of straight lines and curves. It has a nice balanced feel to it.

The depth of field is very appropriate for this image. The slight blurring as it recedes helps to convey a bigger sense of depth which supports your idea well.

The lighting is pretty good overall allthough slightly contrasty as evidenced by the very bright area on the backside of the curved loops in the middle. You may have intended this so it stood out more but I would have preferred some more diffused light.

It is executed very well with clean sharp lines.

I feel like I am basically nitpicking a very good image with a tough topic. Nice job.

Tim

Lovely composition, DOF and black and white (although I see a touch of sepia or gold in there).

I like the use of sepia in this picture and the careful design of the ribbon on the background -- it conveys Pi very nicely!

Was this printed out and then cut and stuck together to make one long ribbon of pi? If so, good god! How much time did it take?

Nice photo by the way :)

I like. You really capture the one of the essences of pi: it\'s scattered length. And you do it in a fun way. Great lighting and composition enhance your communication here. 10
