Use the pencil to point at a compositional element, or use it to underline some notes on the page (write a big A+ on the paper and use the pencil to draw the eye to that place). There is a big band of grey along the top of the image and a big band of dark along the bottom, both of these are de-emphasising the surface of the desk that the compositional elements are sitting on. Try not to have upside down writing, the viewerwill read it anyway, so make it easy (unless you want it upside down for a very specific purpose). Lighting is horrible, try not to use the flash if you can help it.

I would prefer being able to read what's on the note paper - lack of focus and too much light on the paper makes this impossible.

it may be, but it helps you practice what you need to learn, especially math :)

Need a tighter image. Too many items widely spead out.....cropping could have been tighter as well.....5

Your biggest problem with this whole photo is ---- it is a lie!!! No student ever studied at this neat of a desk. I love the color of the desk, and feel you should have used the desk as the entire background without any of the wall. I personally think you cropped it a little too tight on the left side. Should have let the edges of the books be in, even if you had to slide them closer to the paper, like the text book is. That would have made it more uniform, also. Otherwise, good shot worthy of a 7.

But at least you get to attend school, right? It could be worse!

Commentary:
I think the Idea here is good. The real problem in my oppinion is the light. There is a major glare on the edge of the furn. With on camera lighting there is little that can be done. Especially if you have a point and shoot Cam. The best thing I can say is diffuse this flash with something but if you do that with a point and shoot then the metering will not be right for the cam to take the picture. Do not know what to say.
