    Good concept, definitely captured well. My only slight negative is the objects above the books.

    Congratulations ysal! During the challenge I had some books from my childhood at my desk but I simply didn't come up with a good idea what to do with them. You succeeded!

    Wow, thank you everyone for your votes (although I'm starting to get a #2 complex). It is ironic because I chose this subject yet I had no idea for a long time what to photograph! I finally came up with the idea of books because I'm an avid book reader and my mom always read to me when I was very young. I actually went to a used book store and found these old books. I also had lots of fun playing with "light painting"! Thanks again.

    Congratulations on your 2nd place finish. The book you chose was always a favourite in our house.

    Why didn't I think of reading :-) Gotta be a favourite memory for myself and my family too. You could not have picked a better book (imo). Nicely done.

    I like the idea a lot, but maybe a tighter crop would have been better?

    I really like your setup here. Taking a dark room and using a flashlight to highlight the subject area. Nice work!

    Gives childhood memories to me too. Well composed, the colors show the passage of time. My nr 1.

    I like the effect that you have achieved with "light painting". It gives the photo a cozy atmosphere, as if someone is reading in bed after lights out.

    One of my favourite books and a well lit picture.
Good result on this one

    Nicely composed. The contrasting light and shadow is very well done. Like it very much.

    Fits the theme. Spotlight effect is interesting.
