    I like that yoda!

    Any chance, after the compo, I could have a 1920*1200 version?

    What is it with you guys here? Sniffing baking soda and icing sugar every 2nd POTM :D
    Well composed and executed.
    Though a bit bland as I don't see any greater point or criticism highlighted in the way that the title does. Perhaps not strong enough or conceptual enough for my tastes.
    But but but still a very well executed picture. The skill is evident.

    Cheers!

    I like the idea, and the subject matter fits the theme well. A little C&C though, I feel as though there are too many lines or possibly the angle of view is off. Composure is well done, but the amount of 'coke' placed so close with the reflections off the mirror blending each line together with the next line takes away from the image a little, IMO. I don't feel as though a blade would help much, maybe a credit card though? It may present a welcome equation to the theme...drugs, money and society.

    Nice shot, and technically very good. The subject is a bit off IMHO. It's meant to be an action shot I'm guessing as the note is halfway along a line. If so, the note is at an unfeasable angle. The image would have more clout if it was more believable, especially as the contrast and sharpness make it so striking. I like the way the white lines totally break up the reflection of the note. It seems to add another plane to the image, or rather extend one in front of the other. If the focus extended further along the lines it would enhance that effect I think.

    The 1900x1200 version still works though. :)

    Nice photo.
