My son was doing homework and I noticed the crayon box (old lunch pail) was open on the table. Sitting in the late sunlight I thought it was fun (I did nudge the white crayon a bit upward to offset it).

I kinda like this enough that I just entered it in a contest. :-)

Theme: A set of images for this macro side challenge that reflect "things" that are important to my son in everyday life. Put them together at the end and make a decent size print or poster for him.

*** update ***

I won the contest. :-D

I love how you've chosen a 'less than perfect' subject for this. It really conveys a sense of them being put to good use. Love the lighting, too.

I think we have that same crayon box here, and somehow it's the same one that I used as a child many, many years ago. The lighting works well with the gritty crayons, although I could go for a tad more light on the upper right.

So much detail that I can feel the velvety softness of holding a crayon. Very well done.

Excellent colours. I like the way that you have stacked the crayons. It looks exactly the way a child would leave them or tip them out of the box. Lighting is great.

I can almost smell the crayons! Great composition, the colours are fab and I like that you can see the hairyness of the wrappers

This is a wonderful shot compositionally it's very pleasing and the light is great. I am not surprized you have entered it in to a competition and hope it does well for you (unless it's a DPChallenge competition that I have entered too hahaha!), no seriously good luck with it.

Ahhhh hahaaahaa. Just funnin. I love the specs on the white crayon - the whole thing is a perfect representation of a kid's crayon box - dirty, worn, broken - but colorful. :)

Nice DOF and focus. I like the way you zeroed in on the bits of color on the white crayon. Hope you do well with the contest.

I like the light levels in this and the fact you can see the little bits of other crayon colours stuck to the wrappers and on the white crayon.
