I'm not happy with the lights but when I tried some lamps they took all the richness of colour out and turned the fruits orange. The light is from a small window, the light from a bigger window substantially blocked with black cloth over a clotheshorse and what was sneaking around the door. There was too much noise and not enough clarity, but unless I get something better before rollover this will be it.

Beautiful still life with carefully controlled and orchestrated reds.

Not much of a vegetable still life fan, but you've done this very well. Nice tones, and very nicely done. (voted earlier)

Nice shot but I think I will pass on all those peppers.

Like the concept but for me it could be brighter and more in focus
