Thank you all for your helpful comments. I sort of liked the dark, lower contrast look because it is garbage, after all, but I can understand how the darkness didn't appeal to many. I really didn't stage the shot at all. That was how a couple of wine bottles and a can ended up in the recycling bin with some insulation debris that fell from the ceiling. I'll work hard to get closer to 640k next time. Thanks again for taking the time to comment on my photo.

I'm glad you didn't try to beautify this photo bc garbage just isn't beautiful (in most cases). Only thing to change may be the lighting/exposure. Photo could use a bit of lighting. :) Good luck.

interesting lighting on those bottles...the grid shadows add interest and texture.

I quite like the lighting here. It really makes this look like a forgotten corner.

This is a really well composed picture and meets the challenge head-on. It's too bad it's not larger so we could see it better.

size really does matter. Aim closer to the 640 max next time.
