After the Challenge.

Regarding the alleged "noise" -- the purple cloth is actually a piece of hand-woven fabric with the warp a darker color than the hand-spun weft. The result is a piece of fabric which has a lot of texture which many people mistook for noise. I won't make that mistake again.

Thanks to all of you who gave me comments and voted on this picture.

Very good approach to a classic still life. Only the reflections of the room were better out. Nice job.

Your backdrop is especially noisy. I suppose a little more light would have helped the exposure.

OK, I've decided this is my favorite! It looks like there is some color noise in the background and a spot of light haloing on the right but the overall image is just great.

A nice choice of objects colour-wise. A few problems: (1) compositionally, negative space on the right is not working to the advantage, there is a feeling of disbalance in the composition, (2) lighting is a bit too harsh, destroying the textures on the garlic and the eggplant, and (3) your room is reflected in the jar, need to be careful about that. 6

I was thinking about similar concept but did not go with that :)

So rare to see an actual still life in a challenge. Interesting composition. Lighting could use a bit of work, and you might have made something in there that is purple a bit more prominent. Good luck.

Nice still life, a lot of noise in the picture though. Focus is slightly off too.

Crop off a bit of the right side. Other than that, a nice still life.
