  1. B, I choose you!

  2. A seems like it's out of a 1950's ad for cereal or breakfast or something. B is cool I really like it. The caterpillar scares me away a little. Cool pic though. C makes me depressed and I think of brokenness. D is cool. I like the circles of wrapper and blend of colors. It's definitely between B and D.....I think I'm gonna go with D.

  3. Definitely B. I love the color and the way it blends in

  4. I guess I'm old fashioned as I like A. Can picture it framed and hanging on my kitchen wall.

    I think I know who did C from an earlier comment...I can smell 'em...

    I like B too because of the crazy idea. They're all well done. I'll still stick to A...

  5. As much as I love the color in B... I'm going with A

    because I have a soft spot for black and whites. :) I love the contrast in the pic. It almost appears like a drawing.

  6. All are great, but B is magnificent!

  7. Sher likes B
    I'd love A if it were color. Why crayons in a B&W?

  8. B. Great mix of color, crayon and caterpillar.

  9. I choose a...perfect picture for a elem. school classroom I think :)

  10. B - that is one cool @#$ worm!

  11. I choose (A)
    I just like that you cant really see the colors but you know what they should or could be and I love it anyways.. Kinda as in life.. I'd like to think that I or we view ppl in this way. LOL Hope that makes some sense, (Im drugged)

    B. Is awesome but somewhat cartoony, I think my young daughter would love it.

    C. As someone else said, looks Broken and Im not a fan of being broken..

    D. Would be my second choice, really love the way the pic is focused and the use of light.

    Gotta say I really enjoy this Jim as well as the breakfast comments and such- I was excited to see what you had for us! :)

  12. I think they are all great, but D is my choice.

  13. This is a hard decision. I like A for the textures in the apples. Just a neat shot.
    But I think B gets my final vote. I love the bright green color. The caterpillar is amazing and a cool shot all by its self. Adding the crayon makes it an ever more creative picture.

  14. I liked them all, but B is my favorite...maybe because I like green..

  15. C is definitely my favorite.
    It has a simplicity to it. Yet so much depth.

  16. It's definitely between B and C for me. I love the bright colors and the similar angles with the caterpillar and crayon, in B. In C, I really like how simplistic and artsy it is and it almost has a 'aged' feel to it.

    I think I'm going with C.

  17. I choose C

    very dramatic picture and the depth of field is awesome.

    i may see this challenge a little differently than maybe what was expected but C really puts the primary focus on the crayon as opposed to some of the other shots that (although very creative) have elements within the photos that are a bit too distracting and take away too much focus from the crayon(s) themselves.

    B does come in a close second but i just can't get away from that small leaf thats blocking a little bit of the crayon

  18. C. it has a different feel to it than the others and immediately sticks out to me. DOF is nice and has great contrast between the blacks and white.
