Great idea and well composed. The thin DOF is the perfect effect to capture our attention.

Nice depth of field

Great focus on the pencil. This made me laugh and I enjoy looking at this photo too. Laughter and good quality deserves a 10. shortredneck

I love the center focus. I wonder if a dark background would be more striking but, I can see where the light foreground and background compliment each other. Initial impression =6. Close inspection = 8

Need a bit more of the pencil to really being the title out.

GREAT idea and photo. Should'e had it alll the way down - haha - or Just the eraser - just kidding. I like the composition and especially the dof. I like how the colors blend together. One small thing - wish it was just a little brighter - but not necessary. Sitll liked this very much. Good work 8

Good use of DoF. Some might not like the pencil centered left to right but I think it gives balance.

I know OCD isn't funny, but this picture is great and it really "exemplifies" the disorder. I like the shallow depth of field. karmat

Lovely and like the DOF. Would like pencil on a true horizontal or further off it. Great background - not too light or too dark, has some shading to it, yet totally not interfering with rest.

loved this!

great detail

This is funny. It's interesting how the pencil is sharp, and the foreground and background have a soft focus. Pretty neat. My camera doesn't allow for me to adjust my own focus, so when I see focus tricks, it never ceases to amaze me. Neat idea for the photo. Lots of creativity this week. the lighting is great and I like the angle. Don't think I'd hang it on my wall, but that's not your fault, I just don't have a "thing" for pencils. So setting that aside, overall good photo. Good luck in the challenge.

Great shot

Very nice. The pencil looks great. The focus on the lower portion of the picture is a bit distracting. 7

This might have worked better with greater depth of field. That out of focus white patch at the bottom really bugs me.

excellent!!! very clever.

Beautiful depth of field on this shot, and a really outstanding idea. I think I'd like the colors just _slightly_ moved towards brighter/bolder. An all around great photograph. 8

Great photo! Very sharp and brings the message well.

Clear, good dof use, humorous - but true! Good job. Keep up the good work!
Good luck, too!
