This was made completely of wire and cards, and a sheet of cardboard. It took a very long time to create and to get the lighting correct.

Wow! Totally amazing! I would never have the patience to do that. You really have a great shot on your hands! You obviously put a lot of effort into your photography and it shows! Keep taking pictures the world needs you to.

This is really neat; the idea is great, and the title is too. I think if you used a black board instead of white, it would have been harder to see the board, which might have looked neater. But I don't do photography, so i don't know if that would make it more difficult to see. Either way, great job.

If you stare at this for a while, a bit unfocused, it almost looks like the cards are moving outward. Very nice shot, I'm impressed. You're quiet resourceful. ^^

It's amazing that you were able to pull this off. It shows just how creative a person can be if they really put their minds to it. Great job!
