Just seems plain. visible pixellation around the points, and the DOF is too shallow for the subjects.

I dig the concept. The lighting and dof is cool too. I think you may have had some resize issues as I am seeing pixelation around edges. Still, these are pencils being represented as pencils.

nice contrast...great framing...framing can sure make a difference

Your image appears pixelated or over sharpened to me. I like the composition though.

I call it "Picture of Three Pencils."

I think the quality lets the pic down.. otherwise the lighting, composition and idea works very well..

Sorry, but isn't this just a nice photo of some pencils?

Seems oof... and quality of the pic seems very very low. I like your concept alot!!! Lighting you used is intersting too

Would have like to see both points of the pencils in sharper focus

I like the idea of this one a lot and you with your title the image does a good job of conveying that, but the focus is pretty bad

According to Darwin...

Thats a new and effective idea from a pencil. It's good to see not all thoughts of what a pencil can be used for is only chopsticks! I like it, my only change would be to brighten it up a bit more and add a bit more DOF to get the outlier pencil just slightly more in focus.

I'm having a hard time telling what the pencils are supposed to be. Overall I like the picture, except for the pencil on the left, it doesn't seem to fit here. I really like the contrast of the pencils against the wood though.
