Probably would have been better in black and white.

5 - Met the Challenge (both in the respect that most of these items could go IN a time capsule, and also the respect of a photo of this could go in a time capsule to depict the era for future generations). Criticism; I think that if you had less (even none) typewriter (as it is too disproportionate to the other items), and more attention paid to the arrangement/composition of the items you have, it would have made this a better photograph in my opinion. Although I am a fan of unusual angles, I think you have lost detail on a lot of your items with the angle you have chosen. I tried to discern '....space odyssey' and can't make out if it is a record or what, so just detail paid to such things, via the composition/arrangement, would have made this a better shot in my opinion. There are quite a few things I can't decipher, but in general it looks like you have gone to a lot of effort to ensure all items are specific and authentic to your year. The colors are a little 'haphazard', but again, in my opinion, if you had given more attention to arrangement etc, it would have made a difference for that aspect as well. More clarity is also required, especially seeing as the most dominant item (the typewriter) is out of focus, in my opinion, the items looked at 'beyond that', seem 'out' as well.

Good stuff, i'd change the light/colour to feel less modern

cool, a prop or two less might have increased the pictures impact, but still very nice

Too cluttered and no central focus

Isn't that the year Alfred was running for Presifent, or was that 1964

I like the arrangment and the photo on the desk is a perfect fit. The level of the photo is throuwing me off ... with the lean of the bookcase in the background, it make me feel like everything is sliding to the right.

The assemblage of items is strongly evocative of the era. There is something about the white light that seems a little harsh and inappropriate for a 'vintage' feel. The white book manages to steal the show because of its light color interacts with the lighting. This is unfortunate because I am much more interested in the typewriter, the model spacecraft, the gyroscope the radio and the photo.

I like the image, maybe just a bit too much clutter in the background.

On topic but just too much stuff for one photo in my opinion.
