Location: Philadelphia, PA
Date: Feb 15, 2009
Aperture: f/ 29

Date Uploaded: Feb 15, 2009

I toyed with five different designs, shot three and ended up with this. 14 point rounds of post it pop ups in several different colors....11 I think. Placed on my light box and shot with the camera on tripod with the cable remote release. I shot using the abmient light of the light box along but I did several shots waving a small flash light over the set up while shooting. I am not sure that this is one of those or not, but I pretty certain it wasn't.

Post: Camera Raw adjustments in PSElements 6.0. Layer adjustments for levels, brightness/contrast and hue/saturation. Adjust sharpness. Crop. Spot edit dust. Resize. USM.

Nice placing Rob. I figured this to be yours. You definitely know what you're doing with this subject, and might I add, you have waaaaay to much time on your hands! ;)

Wow. Stunning. Really a beautiful image. I think I would have liked a slightly closer crop though. The black area at the top keeps pulling my eye away from the rest.

Looks like Banmorn's work (no offense if you are not he). Beautiful light and color, not sure if the black space at top is a help or hindrance.

Edit: just back to bump this up a notch. :-)

Great use of colour and lovely lighting. The section of black on the top left bugs me a little. Not much though.

This is a complete rip off. Only reason for not giving it a 1 is because it's perfectly executed...
