Traditional or crossbow?

Nice composition.

Good shot, Locksley.. The eraser is a bit out of focus and the holes in the target are rather distracting but the lighting is good.

Great idea for pencil photo. Meets challenge and is technically very good.
08/21/2002 11:53:00 PM
Very original. Nice idea. Good color and sharp focus

Cute idea, good lighting, and nice color. You even managed to get the pencil to look fairly roughly split.
08/21/2002 03:45:00 PM
Creative and colorful
08/21/2002 03:23:00 PM
I like the bright colors of this. Took me jsut a minute, but i realize that you split a pencil in two. Impressive. karmat

Definately original. Great colors. I like how it's not centered, but closer to the bottom right corner. The angle is great and so is the lighting. I like the use of blue pencils instead of yellow here. Yellow would have blend in to much and the blue stands out nicely. In a hypothetical situation, With the precision of the "arrow" though, I don't think there would be so many stray shots in target. However, that doesn't mean that someone else wasn't practicing there as well. :) Good job and good luck in the challenge.

Take an old type of shot (seen stuff like this in movies with darts) and make it new again with pencils. I like the concept, the colors, and the shadows are good.
08/21/2002 09:01:00 AM
This is great! I had a similar idea using a dart board. Yours turned out much better!
08/21/2002 07:21:00 AM
contrast is good...
idea is excellent-8

This is a great idea, well photographed and my only ten for the week. That said, you cheated! The "split" pencil didn't rip the paper out when the new one landed. (See detail of the left half of the pencel, where it meets the target) Smile, Swash

This is really great. The eraser on the pencil looks just a touch out of focus. Otherwise, the colors and concept are both wonderful.

Very original, love that I can see the lead in the "arrow" which has been split by the second shot. The colours are great, and generally the composition is good, but I find myself wanting to move my head up, down and around in search of a slightly (but not hugely) different one.
