I love pens! This is such a great image for that, haha. I like how you have the caps all aligned - it's a small detail but it makes a difference.

The colors in this image are wonderfull. I especially like the caustics (colored light refractions) from the caps falling on the paper. Nice, top 20 out of that many entries!!

This was one of the first pics I stumbled into after joining. I love it! What an innovative way to show the colors.

I also like how you cropped it to show that it continues beyond what's included.

I'm also geek enough to know you got the spectrum in the right order. :)

Great - rich colours - the hi-lights, reflections are all perfectly aligned - lovely detail on the inside top of the pens.
From a photographic point of view it is excellent - exposure spot on. Depth of field just right - point of focus, exact.
For a competition I would definately put in on the list.
As a picture on my wall I cannot say it would get space but that is not the point here. I will definately be looking at some of your other work.

I think the crop is a bit thin. Seeing the pens go back further with white space at the top to match the bottom would look good I think.

I like the way you cropped this so that a greater proportion of the frame is in focus; pretty cool colors but I don't like the white in the foreground, there is a fairly sharp separation from the colored shadows to the white, perhaps it would have been better with a little texture there, as it is it just looks like the white is blown out

Very creative! I like how the colors reflect onto the background. Good Job!

Great use of everyday objects. It makes good color, lighting, and focus that much more important, and you pulled it off.

Very cool! Nice colors too... Took me a second to figure out what you have here.

Excellent clarity. I'm not too fond of the overhead lighting position but the idea and colors are great.

very nice--pen tops right?

Not original, but at least creative. I think this would probably look better on black.

Love this idea and the set up is perfect. Color is perfect and the cropping really adds to the shot...bumping to a 10!

Great lighting gives a delectable sheen, thought they were lit LEDs at first...
