Pachinko is a strange Japanese arcade/gambling game... //www.mangajin.com/mangajin/samplemj/pachinko/pachinko.htm describes it.

It uses small, round, steel balls as the main item throughout the game.

Crop, levels, USM, desaturate, color balance, a gradient burn to make the pseudo-vignette, and text insertion.

Base is a pine board up against my wall, lighting provided by a single compact fluorescent desklamp.

Great shot. One of my favorites this round. Creative use of the DPC abbreviation as well = )

I think this shot is great...I just wish that the lettering wasn't covering up the lip of the bottle. The distortion just under the bottle is also a little distracting.

I like this. Technically it has some problems, like the highlights and the shadow area below the bottle, but it is a good idea with the visual impact needed to help sell an album. Hope you place well.

Awesome! I was going to submit one but not enough time on my part, I would have named it, Derelict Porstituted Conglomerate, and had one of those dancing coke cans that dance when you sing.

Superb image, one of my favourites in this challenge.

Nice to have an album cover which isn`t just a reflection of the groups name but shows a bit of originality by reflecting the name of the album.
Nice work

Excellent creative idea, visually very attractive and love the colours.....but there's an area under the neck of the bottle that appears patchy ?reflection from the glass. Overall though......very striking image.

I like this one, verry well executed, sharp and clear, excellent DOF, and I can clearly see it on a real album cover.

Great setup in both the foreground and background. The DOF is really good. Nice tone too. (9)

Good photo. Nicely done text.

Hey, I've learned a new word! (Had to google pachinko). Really like the image and the choice of lighting and slightly shallow DOF works well. Text design and position is good. 9
