If this image deserves any credit then it all goes to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/17203.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/17203.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Scalvert beacause this work was completely inspired by his image called Nightbulb.

I was pretty confused what to do with pencil? I tried many ideas but at last decided to work on this. I don't know how much it will be appreciated or criticized but I must admit that it was very hard work & even after that it's not even close to the original image.

Very nice. Love how the red really stands out. I wish the hands were in focus throughout -- the oof bottom right is a bit distracting.

Reminds me of using a Bic pen as a rocketship when I was bored in class. If the subject was "what is this pen?", THEN I would have had an entry for this one.

Still a pencil. You can point with your finger and it would still be your finger. Know what I mean? Just because you're using it to point, doesn't mean it's being communicated as anything other than a pencil. It's doing something, not being something.

Nice alignment of the tip with the bright spot on the globe. Very Star Trek!

See there, just to the left of the pencil tip, the navel of the man in the moon. Cool shot. I am hoping this moon is a screen shot on your computer and not your being too close to the moon.

I like the image overall, but I have trouble seeing the pencil as communicating itself as something other than a pencil like the challenge rules said.

Wow, the same cool, bookmark pencil!! So Halloween-like. I love your creative use of a pencil. Your composition and DOF are perfect, as is the wonderful lighting and detail. Plus,,,clean nails are a big plus! Very clever image. 8 from me.
