So I finally got around and took the shot I was supposed to take last fall. Playing around with the idea of growable pens. What if you could? just let it grow and pick your pens when they're long enough.

[edit] I'm humbled about the fact that this one recieved a DD. Really makes me glad about the fact that I tried some different. Also a big thanks to everyone who took the time to look at it and comment :aww:

How wonderfully creative! I love this piece! The idea and concept are so cute and creative, yet deep as well. The background is not distracting and really helps the piece. Looks lovely~ :la:

Congrats on the DD as well. :heart:

This is lovely. Great idea. I love how the leaves are the same colour as the pencils and that the pencils don't have the same height. Quite awesome!

This drawing made me smile, a lot, which isn't something you'll usually get out of me for photography. It's a very clever concept and I love the spots on the yellow leaves - it makes it all seem more "real." I realize this might have been not-all-that-possible, but if there were a way to capture the image where you could see at least one leaf growing from the front, that would give it that final touch of (sur)realism.

Placing the leaves all over was the original plan. I was planning to do with super glue so I would need just a tiny drop and it wouldn't come too visible in the picture. However it turned out my super glue had dried out. I was already really late for autumn pics as most trees had dropped their leaves or they had turned brown so I knew I propably wouldn't be able to find the leaves to do this if I waited any longer. So it was a race against time before the leaves would wither as I had plucked them from the plant some 30mins ago. The only usable glue I could find was this white "all purpose" glue that takes around 10mins to harden and turns transparent in a hour or so.

The final piece is a compromise. I could have spent 10mins to hold each individual leaf in place to get the shot I was originally going for but by that time the leaves could have withered and it would have all been a waste of time.

Given all that, your decision definitely makes sense. It really is a beautiful concept and even without the leaves in the front, the image came together beautifully. Perhaps next autumn? ;) This piece is great, I'm glad you got the DD so that so many people could see it!
