Thank you all for your comments. I just wanted to clear that I had WHITE objects on a WHITE background. I added a bit of toning because I thought that white on white wold be not so accepted here but I was wrong. Actually I am again disappointed of some people unability to see wide. According to them the pure white square, an ooposite to Malewitch's "Black square", would be a perfect match - everything white and no BW. But it is my humble oppinion.

This is one of my absolute favorite compositions in the challenge, and so extremely well done. However, I am making myself really evalute what the challenge is, and I think it is ALL about using a light color on a background of white. I only see tones of B & W in this, so would feel it unjust to score it high. Sorry! EDIT: after so much variance in the interpretation of the challenge, I am coming back through and this time judging on photogrpahic quality only, and not if it meets the challenge within reason. Bumping up.

Interesting to look at due to the pearls. I like the vertical lines and love the shadows. It's very strong in many ways. Good luck.

Did you spray paint the bottles? This has good composition and interesting subjects.

I have not been happy with so many white on white shots in this challenge. Somehow I think if it was intended to include white on white, the challenge would have read white on white. This is one of the few white on white shots I am impressed with though. Perhaps is the the shadows giving a grey look on your objects to distinguish them from the background creatively! Very Nice! One of my very few 10's on this challenge thus far.

Very clean, simple, and effective. Nicely exposed and composed. Great job. (tint is a tad 'off-white' but still works for me)

Great work, very simple but then all the best ideas are! Nice bit of texture in the cork, lovely whites, immaculate lighting.

Great idea for the challenge, and good composition ... too bad the right-hand side of the frame overexposed.

great shot! it's so clean and peaceful... although I don't like pearls (why did you put pearls in this composition?) I gave it a 10

Great set up. Great light. Sharp. Bautiful photo. The only thing is that somehow it is very static. Perhaps some off-center space or looser crop, but maybe that's just me. Anyway, still one of the best ones in this round. 10

Really nice lighting!!

Tecnicaslly and compositionally really outstanding. I have mixed feelings about the chroma of the white, it's so warm. Overall there's a bit of a sense of white-on-grey here, I am giving it a 9.

Sometimes you can spray paint an object and use it as part of a photo and people will not see the paint, only the effect it creates. But sometimes the paint is all that is seen and the image falls short of what it could be. The red wine bottle seems to look most natural with this treatment. I don' like the cork done this way. And that upside-down wine glass is right 'over the top.' Otherwise it is an interesting and fairly effective arrangement, well lit and exposed.

This is good one... nice light setup.

I like it, nice idea and original. The only thing I would've liked to see is the background whiter than what it is, and the right side is lighter than the left. Good Luck !

Very nice and simplistic. I like how everything is the same color but the shapes of the objects are emphasized. 9
