The peach (?) really looks great with the lighting.

One of the nicer shots that not really on the theme...

Nice job with this still life. I like your choice in wood to use also, the texture really adds to this. Good luck in the challenge.

I love this; so subtle, delightfully composed, nice shadows and textures, and the painted light suits the image perfectly. 9

I like this. I think it would have been stronger if you would have used fruit that was not defective, changed to black and white, and played with the contrast or curves

where's the non-stationary light source?

the glow of this is really awesome - the colors seem to really jump off the screen

doesnt really look like a moving light source

Nice still life except for the fact that I can't tell what that small thing in the back is...

Nice orange tones and lovely glow. i feel like this image might have been nice if there was a little less of the total blackness behind the pear and if you could see the stem. although the almost 50/50 distribution of the light on the table is interesting in a way.

Very nice use of light, great textures too. The fruit has a softness and the wood a texture that is almost tangible to me.

Wonderful. For me, this is what painting with light is all about. Hope you get top 10.

you know the stem is there, but we don't. I would have cropped it right down to get rid of the black crushing from above. Beautiful work in every other regard - 8 for now

really nice still life, i'd have liked to see it more central to the frame but still a 9 imo

Very nice.

nice painterly feel! I would suggest a tiny bit more light

I like the photo, but I'm not sure that the white border adds anything to the photo.
