POTN G-Series Speed Challenge #6 - Pencils


Challenge #6 is Pencils. Singular or plural. Wood, not mechanical. Black lead, but it doesn't have to show. Other elements may be in the photo but Pencil has to be the focus.

I realize that most of us will not have these in our current portfolio, but like eggs they're all around us (or cheap enough to buy).

To submit, click "Post Reply" and put your Photo Name in the Subject Line and your Camera Model in the message.

Post until Sunday midnight GMT, 20 March 2005.


Good luck.

Don

The Magic Hexagon

G3

This is a magic hexagon. Each integer from 1 to 19 appears exactly once, and the sum of the numbers along any column or diagonal is the same. See here (external link) for a quick web reference.

After the Test

After the Test

Honest, I didn't see pushtoexit's picture until after I finished shooting this one. Interesting that we both had the same idea. G3, 1.75 TC, natural light with custom white balance. I can post other information after the contest is over.

Note to judge: in the unlikely event that this picture wins, the next contest round will have to pass to someone else, because I'm leaving on a short trip on Tuesday and wouldn't be able to start a new one soon enough--nor to judge it.

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?
