This is a good concept, but I don't care for the composition and lighting.

Too dark and the cassette is not in focus. Very similar to a number of other entries which might see it suffer.

The colours are a bit off on my monitor, there is a reddish cast to the whole image. I don't like the backdrop either, just looks like everything is sitting on a towel on the floor. Doesn't engage me emotionally in any way.

I think that when you are photographing inanimate objects, you really have to nail everything perfectly - composition, lighting, colours, texture, contrast - to induce that emotional response. If not it just looks like what it is - a cassette, record, 8-track, and CD sitting on a towel on the floor.

Have a look at some of the previous challenge winning entries of inanimate objects and try to figure out why they are so good. Compare them with what you were trying to achieve and see if you can understand where you went wrong.

What is that thing in the middle back? I don't know that media. For your picture: It needs more light. The border does well. 4.

Glass Houses--one of my favorites. Anyway, very good, but perhaps a bit too much negative space in the general top-right area.
