Last minute shot, sorry for the lack of creativity.

Thank you everyone!
Lighting is simple - one flash with an orange gel aimed at background, that's it.
I really wanted the teapot balanced on top of the glasses but couldn't do it. Maybe one day I'll try it by holding the teapot up with fishing line.

Way to go, Karen! And a Two Fer on the set up! I always love it when I can shoot for two in one setup.

It's spectacular the way you're able to do this and make it look simple when it's far from it.

Well done! Congratulations on your BLUE!

I never get tired of seeing a beautifully lit and ‘Balanced’ composition like this.

As I commented to another image of the kind:
This type of image is a great exercise and NOT easy but haven’t we seen here too many times?

I truly appreciate it but am longing for something to capture my interest more
I marked it previously with 6 only for that reason. In a challenge specifying this particular topic and level of technicality it would surely be 10
