wonderful composition and use of sepia...very sharp.

Great subject, color and lighting. I do however, think that better framing/cropping, would make this much better.

They say great minds think alike...mine is the close up of the keys. I won't divulge my name though, so my picture will remain anonymous......for now. :-)
You did a nice job! Good luck.

very crisp and alive. i'm a sucker for antique typewriters and manual calculators.

Wish it wasn't cropped so tightly. I would have liked to see the whole thing. Very nice shot, though.

Lovely. I would have chosen a slightly more interesting angle though. 8

Wonderful picture. Good focus. Black and White moves this typewriter.

Wish you hadn't cut the top and bottom off. Good exposure, nice and sharp. Otherwise a very good picture. 7

This is a very interesting object and the picture has charm. But I wonder whether a full-on, 'portrait'-oriented version of it would provide a more satisfying chunk of three-dimensional space required for a balanced photograph. Just a thought. Very good though.

What I really like about the photo is the sepia tone that conveys the typewriter's antiquity, and the lighting (except perhaps the really dark shadows in certain spots). I think though, that it has lost something compositionally by being shot straight on instead of trying out other viewpoints. Perhaps getting in closer and making it slightly more abstract?

Awsome. -9-

Why in the world di you crop off part of this beautiful machine? Why? I don't care what anyone else says you should not have done it! That's my personal opinion. That lost my 10. PTL Thought about it and the crop on corpped off 1 point.

I love this !!!! I wish you had not took the bottom right corner off Shiiizzzam

Works well in cepia and good focus. I didn't really like the framing of the object though.

A technically good photo but no wow appeal 7 sulamk

Nice photo, well exposed and the sepia works well. What really lets this down is the cropping - cutting off the top and especially the bottom just throws the whole composition right off - The subject 'appears' to have more height than width so might have worked better in portrait with some negative space at the top: 6 -lamedos-
