Not sure about the large space at the top, and I wish the paper were crisper.

But the overall look is nice, and I like the shapes.

Absolutely lovely in form and in depiction of the subject! The lighting and placement are exquisite. This is a winner!!!

Very cool - it's almost as if the wind is blowing back the sheets of paper.

I like the image... but the jagged edges were too distracting.

Nice lighting, nice use of space, great repetition, pattern etc. Nice contrast from a simplistic pattern. The red satellites on the pen could have been removed for an amazing photo. Very well done!

Seems too overprocessed.

Neat idea

The form is interesting. I like the repeating and amplifying loops. There is a sense, however, that the highlights are blown. And I guess I don't get the great empty space at the top ( if the title is referring to the great vacuum of space, then we would be expecting to see the pen at some distance from paper floating in the blackness of space as in "Pen to paper, pen to paper. Come in paper. Over" )

Great negative space and the blown highlights actually add to the image. There appear to be some resizing issues, as I see some pixelation.

Love this idea and composition. I've got the same edge jaggies on mine, but what can you do? Have no idea what causes it as I don't particularly over-sharpen my images and I suspect (judging by the quality of work), neither do you. Still, my vote is 9 :)

Hmmm ... are those jagged lines effects or artifacts?

Nice idea nd nice shapes. The lighting/contrast/saturation is way too hot though.

Looks like the Australian Opera House

This looks rally well set up, and quite well lit. There's a bit of blooming on the end of the pen that makes me a bit uncomfortable, and a weird red streak about half way up that is quite hard to see...

You also seem to have encountered a bit of problems with the 'jaggies'.

Doing multiple resizes might help prevent this... I do mine in 5% increments via an action if it's not been cropped, but if the ratio is a bit different, I double check the last few steps by hand...

Great rhythm and interesting composition too.

Nice composition but the blow outs are a problem.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Would be better without the redline in the middle.

Very creative image - lighting and comp are wonderful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

An eye-catching shot. There's a lot of empty space here, but I think it works (now I just need to work out why it works, so that I can start introducing space more effectively into my own shots...)

Effective use of light, too. Did you have the pen suspended on fishing line?

Beautiful
Like a visual symphony for me.

Negative space is a wonderful thing, less highlights and a sharper image would have made this a winner for me. 7

I like it but not sure that the composition works for this...I am one for using dead space like you have here above your pen and paper, but I reckon it would have been more dramatic to get in tighter and loose the space at the top...nice idea

The picture is too blown up and out of focus.

Nice idea...
