Very happy with how this turned out; glad others agreed. :)

This was light painted using the iPhone screen showing a slightly off-white color at around 60% brightness.

I almost reshot it because the broken bay leaf was really bugging me, but I didn't know if I could get the lighting as good as this without spending tons of time on it.

Nicely done, Jon. I struggle with still lifes. You have captured this one well. I might have guessed that you might capture an Oklahoma oil rig.

Wonderful composition and excellent lighting creativity; I would like to see a little more detail below the board to reduce the floating effect. All in all a great addition to your profile page and one of my highest scores. Congratulations.

Amazing lighting! Lovely composition. There's just one bit to the left of the oil bottle up top which needed to be darkened a bit more, gave you a 7.
