One of my first studio attempts, lit with a small desk lamp and a torch. I had to process it quite a bit in PS, as it came with a colour-cast (despite in cam white balance adjustments) and the low light gave quite a bit of noise. I also added a slight diffuse blur outside-in to fade out some more of the noise and draw attention to the central label, which I wanted to keep sharp.

I made the labels

Very creative. Be careful, because the first though came to mind about ideas, but then saw that my ideas were no good and broken. Just first response. But very well done.

The photo is set up well and humorous. Good lighting, focus, and exposure. The message it gives me is "Beware of bad ideas!" rather than what the title says.

This is a clever shot, but I really don't "get it" with this entry - that is, how the title and the image are supposed to match.

Broken lightbulb is a good idea but the box

A great idea, but to my mind overdone. I think an interesting composition of light bulbs would say what you want to better than the labels you've added.

Too abstract for me. The cutoff between lit and dark areas is a little severe, so much so that you seem to have some blown out highlights.

The tie between the photo and the phrase is unclear. An interesting shot, nonetheless.

Good concept. But it is a bit messy (probably intentionally). It's kind of hard to find a focus point.

A lot of effort obviously went into this, nice work.
