Ok this was one of those idea's that sounded soooo much better in my head than it finally turned out in the frame. Yes, those are cutouts of the Lincoln, Washington, and Jefferson memorials, from previous pictures I had taken then glued to a large sheet of white paper with a spot light behind them. The letters are wood cutouts covered in silver glitter. The lasers are 3 cheap laser levels that as you can see throw red light all over the place. Overall it was a good experience in problem solving, but the problem just wasnt solved very well :)

Oh well, I was never very good at math...

Hello from the Critique Club,

Well, from reading your own comments on your entry, you are more than aware of the lighting issues this image has. But I do give you credit for coming up with a creative idea. Actually, if you would have dropped the Washington part of image and put this against a black background, the Pythagorean's laser light show has a lot of potential. The red lasers on the black base work really well and the contrasting color on the letters was a good choice. With a black background, you could have concentrated on the lighting for the triangle and letters and you would have ended up with a unique entry for this challenge. Keep up the creative thinking, as that is the hardest part to learn in photography.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique.

I love it when someone puts on a show! I'm hoping this is your own creation and you didn't just snap someone else's. 9

I'm not sure I get it. The red glare on the photo is distracting
