Good idea, shame the PC is out of focus, due to the wide appature I guess? The backlighting of the PC was a good idea to add interest to what could have been a mundane shot. However the light is poking above the PC which I find distracting. Good effort though.

nice camera shot, but not enough detail for me to guess who you may be.

I did something similar yet it turned out to be a disaster in the post processing so mine is tanking. I had to use a backup procedure that just didn't work... strictly Liquid Sunshine for the past 2 weeks. I had to display a photo of a motorcycle racing on my laptop screen into a 72mm Polo razing filter on my Nikon. Had to use my "Underwater Canon" to get the picture and tried to get a good depth of field in what was a compromised lighting.

Should have had the light completely behind.

good composition, but it would make more sense to focus on the laptop screen and not the wall behind the laptop. i like the light effects on the wall, but i would have hidden the light completely behind the pc. the little that is showing from behind the screen is very distracting.

Cool pic! The symmetrical balance created gives each item it's own part of the picture.

The light behind the PC is really distracting since we can see it... It's a nice idea, but I think with a simpler set-up it would have turned out stronger.
