Very busy this week, with more time I would have more carefully arranged the crayons. Nevertheless, this was a fun challenge!

Thanks for the comments!

Kidyin -- the original was centered, but that composition seemed to be lacking something, and cropping it to make it off center just looked better to me. Rule of thirds, sort of. ;-)

Dave, you're "Under Cover Removal" a few months back on Fred's was a masterpiece (I assume that's the one you're referring to). You must have spent hours setting that up. As per my original comment, I was so pressed for time, I just couldn't reshoot when I realized I had some goofs in the setup.

Mavrik, Goodtempo, Bamaster & Kandyj -- same response, I wish I had had more time to attend to those details.

STEINR -- LOL, you're probably right.

There have been a lot of these, but this is one of the better ones. The offset in the composition helps a lot.

I like the composition of this shot.

A really good image. If I may be so bold as to make a couple of suggestions. This image is really relying on symmetry. Next time make the center circle perfect and the crayons line up perfectly. REALLLY hard to do. I know I did a similar shot with sharpie markers and it almost killed me. LOL. I like the white background and the shadows, you really exposed this well. I would have pumped the Saturation a little more but that is a personal thing. Overall I like the image.... Dave

Good idea to center the picture out of the circle. I would have turned the yellow so the marks weren't showing - as all the rest seem perfect.

the teeth marks in the yellow-gold crayon is distracting but nice composition and exposure

Would this also have qualified for PI?

super sharp.. and good exposure...

I like the circle. For some reason my eyes noticed the seam on some of the crayons. That could have been easily fixed. And are they in a certain order?

Couldn't meet this challenge any better, eh? This is an excellent shot. Might have turned that one crayon (yellow orange on teh right) so that the two dents didn't show. 9
