I really like AJHopp's still life work and this was one of the first I saw on DPC and really like the simplicity. Plus, most of my work is natural light too. This one does not do her's justice, but I had a great time and learned some things while trying.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments. This was a really fun experiment for me. I am so thankful that I have a window with beautiful light to work in.

Thanks again.

Bravo, Mary Ann! Kathy sent me a link to your winning image, and I just had to stop by and comment. Wow, a truly wonderful honor, and your work is beautiful. I can't believe how closely it resembles my original! Well done, and a big congrats on the red!! :)

I'm going to send the link for this photo to Amy - she will be beyond thrilled that you honored her in such a way. I had thought maybe that she had entered this image or that her husband had (she married Graham and is now living in Australia; your Member name suggested that one of them had.) You nailed Amy's style beautifully. Congratulations on your Second.

Very well done 'emulation', and just as good as the original. One of the best.

This is one of my top picks in this challenge. A good emulation of the original. Your image is a very fine SL in its own right. Well done! 10

What a job! Great still life and VERY similar to the original!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really good work, that's what I call a Déja Vu.
Only nitpicks would be the slightly cooler white balance here along with the slightly reduced saturation.

Oh yeah this is wonderfully like the original. I like this style of still life.
