I thought I'd shoot something a bit different to the traditional "flowers and stuff" that you get in most still life paintings, but still keeping a bit of the traditional set up.

This is darned funny. But I'm surprised you don't eat out of the pot or the can. You're verging on the civilized. ;-)

That is some breakfast. I can't face much more than a slice of toast and coffee in the morning. Your focus was very good on the image and your were able to expose it well enough that not much glare shows on the item on the right. For me, though, it seems you might have put too much into the image.

This meets the challenge - inanimate and arranged. Too bloody accurate thematically - good tucker though. I'd be looking for visual composition rather than thematic in a still life.

Second passing and I've only just noticed the handcuffs! A very subtle placement there! This is a great idea and execution - good composition, colour and focus. If I have a bug, it's that area top centre seems a bit over exposed. Good effort - I reckon this deserves a good score.
