This was taken in a corner of my bedroom, with the light just hitting it right...I desaturated and bumped up the contrast. Slight crop on the bottom as well.

Well, for those of you that could not tell the 7th wall, I was using the illusion of a shadow to create the 7th wall. I was hoping to make it interesting with the shadow. I bumped up the levels and contrast as much as possible without losing one of the walls, which was a bit of a compromise. Thank you for all who commented.

I've counted several times, but I see only 6. There may be one tucked away in that little dark corner that I can't see, so I didn't dedcut for it (I figured you knew how to count). I'm thinking this would make a nice photograph with some brightness-contrast adjustment.

I give this a 6 just due to the originality. Very good eye.

Nice observation of your surroundings

Interesting shot.
12/03/2004 03:07:15 PM
Although I only count 6 this is a creative shot with good use of shadows

I am sorry, but I fail to count 7 walls. However, I like the concept and image itself. Good texture and contrast. Maybe after the challenge, we could find the 7th wall...

I only count 6???
12/03/2004 04:32:55 AM
I can see only 6...where is the 7th !!!

I'm guess I'm an idiot... I only count 6 sides???

Very clever. Using shadow to create the illusion of seven. This image would work even better for me if it were square up or skewed even more. Nice idea. kudos for creativity.

very interesting, though it may be a bit low key. I like this one.

I see only six of them... You should have chosen a square crop.

This is the 157th image I viewed in this challenge. It is the first one, which caused me to spend a while looking, pondering, thinking, considering...

how a thing so apparently plain can stir things up. The photo, IMO, is an amusing and delightful commotion. The prospects of finding the undepicted seventh side of the wall within the visual confines of the picture are challenging indeed. Since there is little else in the way of an obvious subject to be had from it, the stimulus is real and effective.

The artless manner of the photograph and the lack of discernible evidence of post-processing is stark when compared to the considerable complexities posed by composing it. While the choice to centre the corner has resulted in an effective dynamic, the tonal balance over the full dimension of the picture, IMO, could be -and, for a photo which comes with such high demands, should be- better.

Since darker areas weigh more heavily within a composition, the lighter areas could be more expansive, which inevitably would make for an assymmetric composition. An assymetric composition, however, would also likely accrue the potential for a more abstracted order. This, to my sense of it, would be beneficial for the conceptual appreciation I derived from it.

I value this photograph for the uniqueness of the genre it represents and for the noetic adventure it invites. > 7

Weird abstract. Reminds me of one of those intersection with 7 streets intersecting in an accident trap. Nice capture of light, shadow and wall texture.

i don't get it, i only count 6 -- i'll take your word for it. interesting idea though - i like the angles and texture.
12/01/2004 06:49:29 AM
Clever, made me think!
12/01/2004 03:39:49 AM
Are you sure it's seven? :)
12/01/2004 03:15:25 AM
Is it me or am I only counting six??
12/01/2004 03:07:51 AM
looks like 6 to me, 6 distinct surfaces anyway...
12/01/2004 03:03:26 AM
Interesting perspective that flows well and doesn't feel boxy despite the angles used. Color might have worked well with this shot as my eye is still looking for something more.
