Challenge: Motivational Poster II (Advanced Editing V*)
Collection: Challenges 2007
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6

I don't have access to a lot of props around here... this is a crate with a wooden box frame on it that sits in front of my living space. The rocks were carefully gathered from the ground, which is conveniently covered with 'em. Hopefully at least a few folks will get a chuckle out of this.

And for those that missed it - "Think outside the box"

Apologies to Neil - I did try it with a different font but couldn't get it the way I wanted it in time to enter.

So glad to see this was from a TSer! Gave it a ten - not just a great idea but a great shot - excellent use of angles and shadows.

Deb, this was one of my higher rated shots. I think it is magnificent. The idea was brilliant! AND IMO should have rated much higher.

Great concept....I agree that "THINK" could have been more effective a little larger. Still a great idea and execution.

An underrated shot Deb! But I like the one post's comment that this should be the DPC poster (and t-shirt). I agree!

I didn't even get the joke, duh, and gave you a 9 anyway. I was just thinking something like "think different." I seemed to have gotten the message subliminally. :)

ah, this was yours! great idea, i really liked this one. i jsut wish the 'think' had been a little bigger - not a lot, just a smidge.

i really like the lines and textures you created .

Lovely abstract with surprise message.

Oooh it's like a Zen photo. I would like to have seen "think" a little more spaced apart. The shadows kind of run the letters together.

Creative, nice poster.

I wish I could vote on this Deb. Ha! I didn't notice that the rocks said "think" when we discussed it in the Critical Mass team thread. I hope it's getting appreciated!

Neat, I like the idea. Good comp, think it needs more contrast.

Deserves a high score, and gets one from me. It is clever even though literal, and certainly elegant and well executed. I hope your reward doesn't require waiting for an OOBIE. Site council should consider licensing this from you to use on DPC T-shirts (in spite of common voting patterns to the contrary) or as a screen-saver.

Deb, I hope folks take the time to see this one. Great composition, and use of the angles. And good job getting the exposure. I would've given this an 8.

This might be even better with title "Be Creative - Think out of the box", but maybe that's implied. If so it's too subtle.

Nice, I like everything about this.

I like the way you're thinking here. A poster that requires a little thought and analysis is a good poster in my book.

Your "Think" needs to be more easily read/bigger rocks? Love the concept and the rest of your composition.

Nice concept.

very nice idea, good composition and layout. "Think" is hardly readable because of the strong shadows.
