Hardest shot I've done in ages! Had to resort to clothespins to keep the sheets of paper in their shape, and it took really long to find the right angle to shoot from so that it looked sort of like a landscape while all the clothespin were hidden at the same time. Had to keep on reattaching stuff, repositioning, etc. Anyways hope it does well :-)

Neat idea. Not having the top sheet/dune on the left so bright would have helped balance the image.

the overall sharpness of your image makes it stand out

The dusty foreground takes from the illusion a little bit. Nice idea though.

Yes they do appear as dunes. Neat idea. The lighting is perfect.

Love the simple almost minimalist idea here and overall it works although the right hand side isn't 100% "there" for me.

Beautiful B&W Photo

So far, my favorite. The whites seem a bit overblown, but it is well-composed and I like the tones.

A good concept and good lighting but it's a stretch for me to imagine this as a landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 01:26:47 PM
The little bit of dust in the foreground is distracting, but I do like the soft tones and simplicity of your image.

very elegant but maybe a little too safe for this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 10:18:22 AM
I was hoping there would be one like this as this was an idea I had and I entered the other challenge instead...nice tones, nice work 8

I love the tones on this image - only thing that's stopping me giving 10 is the DOF. Looks like the near edge of the top sheet is OOF. Still a 9 though - hope it does well!

This would have made a nice art deco image if the papers had have been colour graduated.8
