Thanks for all the comments, I agree with the lightings comments, it is harsh. I wasn't very satisfied myself but wanted to submit my first pic altough I didn't have much time to make something :-)

The subject is interesting, but I think you could have tried a more interesting perspective to improve the photo, its just too ordinary right now. The lighting is a little harsh especially in the background which is blown out in the center. The two edges on the left, and the wall are a little distracting.

Great scales, stronger rating if you macro on the scales to capture ornate emblems and character. Don't take shot of the whole thing since we would know by your macro enough that it is a scale.

Well done, fits the Challenge great! I am a Libra...those scales are very nice looking are they old...? the only thing I would have changed would be the edge of the Table is a bit out of place. But that is just me....I give you a 10

Nice set of scales and I think the choice of black and white with toning brings out the detail. Lighting is somewhat uneven, perhaps softening it by putting a sheet or tissue infront of the light source might help. I'd also consider using a large sheet of card, curved to provide both surface and backdrop, to remove lines and remove background detail more effectively.

I might have gone for a softer lighting but overall very nice.

Interesting subject - lighting is strong in the center, and in some of the reflections. Undoubtedly, some detail has been lost in the size reduction, and that hurts this pic a bit.

Would probably work good for an eBay ad.... doesn't make for an interesting photo though. A bit hot in the top center, lacks composition. Neat scale.

The lighting is to harsh in the center. Try bouncing the light off the ceiling next time.

This is an very nice old scale: very nice subject matter. However, I<m not crazy about the angle used. I find it too direct. Could have ben better is shot from higher above. Also, the part of the wall between the two arrows is overexposed. I would continue experimenting with this subject matter to try to come up with a better lit and framed shot.

I like the sepia tone to this shot.

Nice shot, though the lighting is somewhat harsh.
