The black and white coupled with the choice of DOF really makes this stand out. I dont think it really matters what the books are, just having old, dusty books is enough to conjure up feelings of nostalgia. I would imagine everyone has memories of old books, especially ones you were forbidden to touch as a child. Having the books on the right be stacked differently helps with the feeling of chaotic order. I could just imagine the old library or den where these reside. Wonderful image!

Kind of blurry at left, is distracting

this is like a trick photo - my brain won't make it lie flat - what is in the background and what in the foreground. on the right, the horizontal book in in front but on the left the blurry stuff that is not boks wants to come forwards - also the top of gospels 1 is doing something funny in space. It's making me dizzzy.

too narrow of a DOF -- lots of blur in this photo.

Good Depth of Field.

Praise the Lord to see something like this here! What a great set of books! Unfortunately I don't think this photo will inspire many DPCers to reminisce (I am one of the exceptions.)

I like the idea, but having most of the shot out of focus, especially the light areas to the left really screws with my eyes.
