Sharpest Pencil in the Bunch

Uploaded: November 30, 2005


The idea just popped into my head today while working on something else, so I gathered some things and set up the shot under a makeshift "light tent". The sharpened pencil symbolizer leadership, intelligence, etc. It outshines the rest (even with it's glittery appearance:-)

Great image. Did you put something on the pencil to make it sparkle or was it like that?

Very creative and great lighting! #2136716

Congratulations on the Finalist! Those pop-in-the-head ideas are often fun! (I've got a pic, "Past Pencils," that could be a sequel to yours! Another of those just-popped-in-my-head ideas... several foil-print pencils had been thru the sharpener!) #2206638
