Simple, yet very effective. Very well executed too.

Like it!!!! Nice idea and execution.

Awesome. This is my favorite of the challenge so far. Great idea and even better execution. Throwing a little (very little) more light on the typewriter so some of its detail is brought into the shot would be the only idea I could offer. This is a wonderful photo.

Great photo! "The Shining" sure left us all with some memerable moments! 8

Classic scene, awesome picture.
08/31/2006 11:10:09 PM
A slightly different slant to the other "shining" entries. I like it, well done!
08/31/2006 04:29:42 PM
perfeect, and I feel like the way the lighting is set up that this could be right from the film.
08/31/2006 12:26:56 AM
Good use of shallow depth of field here, and the dark foreground really adds to the feeling of tension in the shot.

Excellent idea...excellent execution
08/30/2006 09:10:52 PM
I had the same idea, but didn't do it. As far as yours goes, my first thought was that your white balance could have used some tweaking, but the more I look at it, I think the way you have it gives the photo a better feel.

Really like the DOP...were the spelling mistakes intentional? 9
08/30/2006 06:31:59 PM
Simple, yet one of my favorites from the numerous "The Shining" entries--one of my favorite movies. It would've been cool if you could've caught the typewriter mid-stroke, mid-sentence, like an action shot. Still, this was my favorite scene from the whole movie and I think you recreated the creepiness.

One of 2 good Shining pictures. 9
08/30/2006 01:21:06 PM
I love it. This is such a creative rendition of the movie. One of my favorite.
08/30/2006 12:47:20 PM
I'm giving you extra points just because you still have a working typewriter! Nice image, really brings back the movie to me. I love the DOF in this photo.

Excellent - 10
08/30/2006 10:44:11 AM
Hmmm... I love this shot.. impactful and effective... nice colours. Another thing about it is the texture of the paper is sharp. Good effort.. 9 for me..
08/30/2006 10:37:08 AM
Good variation on the Shining theme.
08/30/2006 08:32:28 AM
Great shot. The DOF works perfectly and I love the sepia tone. Gives it the eerie feeling. It would be neat to see this same shot while you were typing the sentence. Just to see what effect it would have had on the seen.
08/30/2006 06:39:53 AM
a nice composition, good props and lighting
08/30/2006 05:29:47 AM
Such a simple idea but very well executed.
08/30/2006 05:00:38 AM
i especially like the spelling mistakes
08/30/2006 04:59:07 AM
Excellent recreation. This is the sort of thing that I would expect to see. Greaat use of DOF.

I guess people have only seen one movie. Nice choice in going with a different scene of that movie.
