Challenge: The Corporate World (Classic Editing)
Camera: Olympus E-10

This was taken on my dining room table with some newspaper clippings, a Sanford yellow highlighter, a tripod, and an AlienBees B800 studio strobe. I focused on the bottom graph in the photo to get the area of sharpness I wanted. I didn't do any cropping in Photoshop, I only inverted the colors and did an unsharp mask of 80% and 0.3 pixels.

Good use of contrasts and colors, the highlites really add to it. I like it a lot better inverted as you have done.

excellent use of inversion!

killer inversion

I think this is one of the few good uses of inverse I have seen at DPC. I love the want ads trailing off into the distance...

The negative works well on the newspaper print , however I think a slight levels adjustment to improve the contrast a little may have helped.

I really like the editing that you did to this picture and the general layout of the papers. Everything stands out well. Great job

Interesting color scheme. Nicely focused shot, but a bit dry. 6 Swash

Startling color and contrasting. Nice.

Can you say "Ouch!"? I like the way the inverted color gives the whole picture a dark and evil feel.

I want to know how you did this!! Well done -10 based on technnical merit

Normally I don't care for inverted photos, but I think it adds to the gloom for you. The picture seems kinda flat to me though (rather 2 dimensional).

Interesting use of negative. I like that - unusual and atmospheric. But for a really "black, depressing" look I think you needed softer lines and some shadows. Of course they would have had to be lights when you composed the scene. Great concept though - very original.

Splendid use of inverted colors! I like it...the highlighting adds interest as well. I would have liked it cropped down from the tad a bit. 8 Lisa

Nice image I like the DOF. That white area near the top left though invites the eye's attention. You probably didn't intend that but had no control over it either.

Negatives never looked so good. I love this! 8.

I like the overall look, but the photo does not inspire me. lhall

Good article choices, and meets the challenge quite well.
