I have seen a tutorial on this... but in a challenge it would not be legal.. But i have been looking and have descovered how you did it... it is pretty easy i guess... might have some trouble with lighting and all that but after all a easy setup...
Now about the picture i really think it is well executed... Very nicely done the lighting is really nice and the ideia great... i would to think that with a rock it would be much better but 27th is just great... Keep on the great work.

If you had replaced the intel chip with a rock it'd have done much better...

Basic manipulation?

ok the image didn't have to contain all three elements so you're ok there BUT what is with the monitor? I admit it is an impressive monitor and seems to be perfectly arranged with the background (although the back image could use a little bit more light) but what has the computer chip have to do with it (is it the granite thing?) You've used some creativity but I think you over did it and shot yourself in the foot. Sorry

cool effect with flawless execution!
04/26/2005 10:51:18 AM
Good idea. That`s a cool monitor.
04/25/2005 11:03:08 PM
It doesn't match up exactly, but pretty close. I really like your pic.
04/25/2005 09:22:48 PM
cool. it is interesting how you incorpurrated the desktop into your pic.

I saw a discussion about this technique in a recent forum thread. This one came out neat, but I'm a bit disappointed about how you 'abused'paper and scissors to make it fit the challenge. Um, is the Pentium-thing supposed to be the rock? Why's that?
Two other things that bother me and that you can easily fix after the challenge in photoshop are the slight colour difference between the lower left corner and the background, and also the cables.
Anyway, an interesting picture. 9.

That's the way to work some floating icons into a challenge, nice job. I love your monitor, want to trade? [10]

Looks like lots of work. Well lit, although it's a shame you can see the background material.
04/25/2005 12:08:41 AM
Aha! Terribly clever!
I think this could be better if you chose a lower angle, that way you wouldn't be so much of a tilt on the monitor.
Awesome shot though
04/24/2005 09:13:07 PM
really well set up shot, it should finsih in the top ten. I gave it 10.
04/24/2005 08:51:41 AM
I have seen this done a few times. You did a terrific job on this.
04/24/2005 06:15:26 AM
nice crisp image and clever idea 9
04/22/2005 03:59:57 PM
Great creativity and a sharp photo.
04/22/2005 02:14:14 PM
wow, that's really good. It's a shame that it fits the topic so loosely
04/21/2005 07:25:08 PM
was that hard to arrange? fascinating tecnique, but not very exciting image... how can I say? more pleasant for the brain than for the eye, anyway a good picture

Very nice but I would really like to know how you did this following basic editing rules !!
04/20/2005 08:19:56 AM
This theme is becoming a bit of a cliche now.
Nicely executed though

Nice shot, bet it took a several attempts to line it up! 8

You were probably just dying to find a challenge to use this technique in and gave up waiting. :) Cool technique and good execution of it.
