You got a 7 from me, I thought it was a really nice picture. I see you got some helpful comments. I think it was a great idea and well composed.

Good shot, but the crop and angle are a little off. If you rotated this slightly clockwise you could get the bottom of the purse completely in frame and also hide the top right corner of the pillow. In addition the bottom right corner of the image is a little blown out on my screen.

Since the purse is the subject of the picture (according to the title and challenge), it may have been better to crop the glove and get the entire purse in the picture. Cropping out the very top would have taken away that "glimpse beyond" as well. I assume that it was difficult to photograph, because not only is it transparent, it probably reflects a lot of light, too. For that reason, maybe having two sources of light (one on either side) and diffused somehow (paper towels work well), may have helped you to keep from washing the right side out. I like the contrast of the black gloves and the pastels of the flowers and purse. karmat

i think this is a nicely composed image but I don't care for the background... maybe a solid background would have worked better :) = 7 - jmsetzler

Nicely laid out set. The pillow makes a nice backdrop.

Overexposed on the right side. It looks like you are going for an advertisement style shot, for this you should use more full lighting.

That looks just like the potholders my grandmother used to make. The purse is a little washed out on one side and you can see the edge of the pillow on the top corner. If this had been put on a flat surface, I think both flaws would have disappeared. You still get a 9 from me for the originality and striking a nostalgic cord in me. Well done.
