You have a great knack for streamlining to the most simple and graphic elements in an image in many of your shots.

This was by far the strongest paper photo should have placed higher.

Who knew it could be so sexy!!
Way to GO!

NICE geometry, texture and lighting... the title is direct and simple but being a poet, i think "Flow" or "Fanned" would have given it a little more pizazz. i love this photo. adding to favorites. good luck in the challenge! 9

I love the almost organic shapes you have created here. The tonal range is just right for the image, and contributes to the effectiveness of the abstract. Without any doubt, my favourite of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/22/2007 10:54:24 PM
Awesome. You've taken a common, every day thing and presented it in a wonderfully unique way. Great choice on the B & W - it really helps this photo work. Great tones, DOF, lines and curves.

A simple idea, an excellent shot. It's a 10 (IMHO)

incredibly good lines and lighting here - fantastic vision to create a work of art from this mundane object 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/19/2007 11:25:10 AM
Oh, wow. Very little abstract art does much for me, but this is beautiful! The way those nearly straight lines make a curve from the twisting is lovely, and you cropped it exactly to fit that upper left corner.

Your lighting is also superb - the greys look neat, and I especially enjoy the negative space contrasting with the highly textured areas of the paper edges. I'm sure you know all this already, but hey, I'm delighted to see it!
