Nice play with sharpness. The music of the background might have been more interesting.

Good composition however, DOF is shallow and the picture appears quite grainy. The stark black upper right corner seems a little distracting. All in All this is a worthy of note for the challenge topic.

REALLY GREAT - I can see the time and effort put into this one. It's simple - but not. I definately like the composition - the usage of lines. The choice of dof is also really great - it makes the primary subject REALLY stand out (isn't that the point of dof?). Great achievement of black background. At first, the extra contrast (if that's what it is) stood out as a negative, but as I really look at it, I think it adds more the photo. GREAT WORK 9

Great patterns. I like how the front pencil was placed in opposite of the other pencils. you had very good spacing in the bottom pencils. Lighting is good and focus and angle are good. Sharp focus on the front pencil and soft focus on the others looks really nice in this case. I am curious about the very bottom pencil and why it is cut off at an angle like that. great job and good luck in the challenge.

Interesting and striking layout, love the graininess, is it deliberate? Also like the colours and vibrancy.

A bit grainy, some of the detail is lost in the noise. Camera ISO setting?

Good composition. Dark area lower left is slightly bothersome, as is the out of focus eraser.

What's that cutting off the pencil at the lower left? It's not too distracting, but I would have like it better if it wasn't there.

Nice simple arrangement and well shot with good light.

I like the focus, and I even like the slight grain. The thing that distracts me is the black piece covering the last pencil at the bottom... it really disrupts the pattern.

cute :)

Nice dof. Score 7 ~Kee

The yellow realy stands out, but to get it I feel you sacrificed the red of the erasure.

I like your composition and "setup", but personally, would have like for all of the pencils to have been in focus. Nice shot though ! lhall
