$12.99 red wine that I might or might not drink
$6.99 for burgundy gerber daisies and asters (too tall for the shot)
$5.99 each for red and purple grapes, only one bunch of each bag were shaped right for the shot
$9.99 for a flashlight that was too strong for the shot, ended up using one I had all along
Getting an image that makes me happy - priceless!

I like the old masters look of this soft light, I hope the voters share my vision.

Painted with a small flashlight covered with black pantyhose, then my hand, letting only tiny bits of light through to paint my scene. PS mostly involved adjusting curves/levels & selective color to minimize a warmish (almost hot) spot. sharpen and remove noise.

Looks like they didn't, which is a shame. I gave this one a 9. Only a suggestion of too much light on the gerberas for my taste stopped me adding it to the two 10s I gave.

Beautiful light on the grapes and the bread and just enough on the bottle and the glass to give some sparkle. I suppose people were looking for neon streaks ;)

Interesting mood here. I like it, part dark and part light.

Too dark to see bottles, and oversharpened (look at cork).

that bread looks good, but anyway the flowers look good but the hot "spots" throughout the photo could be a problem.
