Love this photo great composition and lighting.

digit, metal, easy, games, tally, gates, sell... Go for those big words! 12 extra points for you!!
Just kidding. Cool picture, fun game. I like the plain composition and the starkness of this picture. Good job.

Clean, well photographed..best of the board game set shots for me this week. I am guessing you have a nice light set or you really can work the table lamps to great effect to get such even lighting :-)

Very fine. Great colors and composition. Slight oversharpening shows in the lettering and around the edges of the cubes, and the lighitng isn't quite even (falls off at the bottom and in the ULHC), but these are minor issues. You did see "digitally, right?

I found a nine letter word, which might be a subliminal message. Good lay out and idea. White balance might be improved due to the overbearing blue tones.

I think this would have looked beeter with alittle more contrast of colors
05/23/2002 08:23:00 PM
This really appeals to the graphic designer in me. I love the subtle use of color, the sharpness and clarity of the game and words...it would make an excellent product shot for Boggle as well. Good job.

You missed digital

I like your choice of lighting for this photo. It compliments the colors quite well. I probably would have tightend the composition up some, but that may have ruined the clean crisp look. Good job.

I'm guessing the inclusion of the word "digitally" was intentional? This is a beautiful image... my only complaint, a very minor one, is that the white-balance seems just off.

mat, hid, etc. Sharp and clear.

This seems a little sterile. I think a different base color would have been useful to differentiate from the paper. Also, I appreciate why you might want to use a freshly sharpened pencil, but if all those words have already been written, wouldn't it be not quite so sharp? In fact, it may be the words themselves that make me think of this as sterile. If I'm playing a timed game like this, my own writing is nowhere near that neat and tidy. This all makes it sound worse than I really think it is. Good work.

Nice use of white. I would really like to know how you managed to get so few shadows....Interesting shot.
05/21/2002 10:23:00 AM
This is a good photo but it makes me want to put my sunglasses on :) This would have also been a good entry in the advertisement challenge two weeks ago.
05/21/2002 12:38:00 AM
This really should be a ad for Boggle! It made me want to play.....10

Simple, well-lit, colorful. Maybe the paper could stand out a little more. No other suggestions. Nice shot.
05/20/2002 04:47:00 PM
Digit,Digital,Digitally,Digiteyes. :) That neat.
05/20/2002 04:45:00 PM
nice use of white
05/20/2002 01:15:00 PM
sorry, just seems too sterile. but on the flip side of that, it is VERY crisp and clear. :)
05/20/2002 12:07:00 PM
Nice Photo. Very clear well ballanced color.
05/20/2002 11:45:00 AM
the white background looks very clean, but the white paper really blends into it
05/20/2002 11:11:00 AM
Composition is very good, clear, clean crisp shot.
05/20/2002 10:48:00 AM
Best Boggle Shot.
05/20/2002 10:01:00 AM
(Peggy Hill could have gotten WAY more words!)
Nice lighting and the composition is really balanced. I especially like the extreme point on the pencil!
05/20/2002 09:09:00 AM
Very nicely laid out. This shot would also work great for advertising.
05/20/2002 08:17:00 AM
Clean shot very good colors, great lighting.
05/20/2002 07:18:00 AM
familiar font. dirt cheap ?
05/20/2002 01:12:00 AM
Brilliance focus and lighting. Making the words easy to read helps people absorb the image (they don't become distracted trying to work them out) Choosing a portrait layout was interesting. If I was selling Boggle in a magazine I would seriously consider this image - well done!

you either have consistent hand writing or you typed that out.
