I adore the colors, the flowers, the composition, and that gorgeous piece of furniture. I don't like the stark shadows behind the objects, though -- I find them distracting. I imagine you loved those, so I'll chalk it up to personal taste. :)

This is a good setup But I think it could have been better if the wall behind was dark and the shadows were out, otherwise good job :)

nice idea nd composition though the light/shadow is a bit harsh and too present IMHO

God no. Waaaaaayyy to many colors to go for a juxtaposition of red and blue.

Seems like more than a duotone, but I like the items you chose and the way you arranged them. There is a great variety of textures from soft to smooth to rough in the items, the flower shadows, and the noisy hutch shadow, making it fun to "explore" the image.

I don't like the shadows. Similar shot, less the shadows and hat might work..

Very Nice composition. just a little bit of rotation clock wise to level the hutch 8

I like the lighting and the colors, but find the shadows a bit distracting. Maybe they are too long?

The hutch is such a great piece and I really like the colors and textures of it.....think you might have lost the smaller red vase and flowers as it seems lost and in the way causing a distracting shadow on the hat. I like the hat as well. I am a BIG fan of shadows and I like these shadows as shadows but not as part of this image. Losing the red vase and its shadows would also help this. Placing the blue vase flowers closer to the hat and shoting just slightly more to your left might have helped too....The BG color does not work for this, though I realize there may not have been much you could do about that.

very nice use of shadows, i'm surprised more people didn't use shade, you get a point more than they do.

I love the colors in this. The only way they could be better might be some blues in the flowers. And I want your hutch! Excelllent composition.

I wish you could bring out the texture and color of that wooden table/shelf more- it' makes a great contrast with the sleeker-looking vase, flowers, shadows, and hat.

i like the color and composition. lighting could be worked on. i'd try to make it more even and avoid the shadows on the wall. they distract from the subjects

Very nice. I think the shadows are a little long, but I like the colors and composition.

I like the color combination, and even the shadows on the large flowers, but don't like the dark area on the right. Cropping the picture on the right rim of the hat would have been better in my opinion.

Great shot. Love the lighting and colors.

I like the colors and the composition. The shadows are a little too harsh for my taste and become a distracting element in the image. Some softer light could have helped this.

Great shadows! I also love the colours and the old wooden table. Well put together!

Those shadows have me really wondering about this one...
