this is a great composition for this challenge. i like the lighting and how the reader is visible over the books. i almost would like to see the shot framed so that the reader appears to be reclining on the pile of books. this shot makes it almost appear that way except for the top half of their body hanging in space.

i congratulate on a great composition and terrific idea for this challenge! good luck!

Good idea. I find the person "floating" distracting.

Great illusion of being perched on top of the pile of books. Best book collection photo of the bunch. Wish it were just a bit sharper.

interesting! The use of lighting gives the subject a "floating" effect. I wish you could have used a sharper focus of the reader, to lure the viewer to the "bookworm."

7 - Good. Criticism; perhaps even a sharper angle and slightly better focus/detail in the books/foreground, may have made this better in my opinion. Not sure on the frame.

Love the idea. Just wished the lighting was better and a little more even. The middle portion of the book heap looks like its in shadow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2005 05:00:02 PM
I Love it!
11/30/2005 03:25:33 PM
Wow, I love the placement of the books! I love it!

There is a dark spot in the middle. That was a distraction for me. Otehrwise, Good Job!
