couple of ikea lamps taken without flash and with tungsten white balance ... postprocessed with levels but still to make people aware that this are lamps hanging from the ceiling :-)

i think using these lamps was a really good idea for the challenge. however, i am not sure this is the most effective composition. as it is, it seems to lack impact, and there doesn't seem to be a single focal point for the viewer to refer to.

i like that you used the rule of thirds to some extent -- the lights are above the horizontal center of the image. perhaps a more effective use might have been a long vertical image with the shape of one of the lamps in the bottom third? just an idea.

i hope this helps. i'd like to see some more shots using these shapes, perhaps in pure black and white, and perhaps with one of the lamps shining on something else that has a strong shape.

Interesting choice of subject. The near-symmetry bothers my eyes, for some reason.

the lamps are not at the same level... I think this might have worked better to shoot from the side so one lamp appears smaller and further away.

For non-dynamic this really took my eye. I really like the use of two shapes and how they are lit.
