However, the pencil must be used or communicated as something other than a pencil in the photo.

I like the composition here and the dof -- very neat. The dark spots in the top left corner are a bit distracting.

Lovely light and dof, but I'm looking at a pencil.

Has potential but let down by inconsistencies in the white background and the fact that the pencil is OOF.

A picture of a pencil. Super. Wish I could give negative numbers.

Isn't this just a picture of a pencil?

How is this being used as something other than a pencil?

Like the placement of the shavings. Not sure what is in the upper left corner but it distracts from the image

I don't see how this is being "represented as something other than a pencil."

For me, your image doesn't communicate as something other than a pencil as stated in the challenge. I do like your composition though.

it's a nice shot but as it's a pencil being nothing other than a pencil I don't really feel it meets the challenge. sorry.

Doesn't meet the challenge.

the lighting is really uneven - the background with the smudges and grey texture make it seem a bit muddy, and the pencil seems to me to be acting like a pencil and not as something other than a pencil

Isn't the pencil not supposed to be a pencil? The smudge on the top left is a little distracting to me. I like the pencil shavings though.

To me, this still shows a pencil as a pencil and I'm not sure but, I think the challenge called for a non-pencil usage in the shot. Nice shot though!

Love your DOF...the clippings really add to your image. Nice lighting and tones. I like!! :)
