This is funny! You should have sharpened both ends of the pencil, though! This probably would benefit from a bit more brightness adjustments, sharper focus and a different background. :)

If your image was a bit sharper or the "laser" a bit more pronounced, I would have scored it higher. Point for originality though. :-)

I think a dark background would have really made the reds and yellow pop

The way that your depth-of-field pushes the foreground out of focus is a little distracting in this shot. It might look cooler if the background were a bit darker, too.

Creative and very, very different!
