Awesome shot. I'm not sure I can tell you anyway to improve it, so I'll just tell what i like about it. the composition is really strong to me, I think because it forms sort of a triangle between the lamp, paper and hand. At first, I thought the lamp was a touch overexposed, but upon looking at it more, I like it like that because the brightness of the lamp and the relative darkness of the paper, though it is so close to the lamp, really gives a feeling of past times. Great subject idea, and one that I, as well as others, I'm sure, can really relate to.

Keep up the awesome work
God Bless

Hey, thank you all!! I thought this wasn't over until tonight, so here I was going to check my score to see how the pict was doing, and I see it front page. It's been a strange Summer :)

Thanks again,

Ursula

PS - that is my handwriting, although I tried to make it look a bit hurried and messy.

The date and the choice of pen are a nice touch. Not sure if the pen really would have looked just that way or not (looks a little too crisp to me, but I don't know pens through history), but the feel of it is just right. This is great.

This is a great Photo. Good composition! I still prefer hand writen than e-mail.

Nice composition and color. Good luck.

Impersonating the past is not within my interpretation of the challenge... as this letter is being written at the present snapshot time, it's not really the past.

Wonderful. As this loaded from top to bottom, I was thinking "What kind of pen is he writing with" when the full photo loaded, I was pleased to see. You put some thought into this shot, and I think that it shows. Focus and clarity are just awesome. Really nice job. The angle and framing/cropping are perfect in my opinion. Nice tones, and the lamp adds to the shot as well. One of my favorites so far. ~Heather~
