Actually taken on a 5D at work... which is why it isnt on my list, but it was my 105mm at least ;)

Softbox flagged vertically to the right (otherwise you get weird highlights on the left sides of the plate which mess up the curves)... plates, a pea and a green background which doesnt quite match the green of the pea - sadly... although i did my best in basic to bring it out nicely - and then try to keep the white as white as possible. Curves are my friend! As is my Manfrotto 055XproB for being able to shoot directly down on a plate using a 105mm... i actually had to stand the tripod on some tin cans to get the extra height needed to complete the border ;)

Hoping for a +6.5, i'm feeling fairly confident about this shot...only a few minor dust things i would have loved to clone out but rules is rules :(

Great positioning of the plates to add contrast and shadow. I like the color here, good going!

This would've been excellent for centered composition.

simple and elegant composition. The pea is a great focus point, and the color brings the eyes continue looking at the image.

I like this simple and nice composition. I don't know how you came up with the idea of putting that tiny green bean on it, but it did add some points.

I like the setup and idea a lot. The value in the green is good.

I normally don't like this style of photography (just my preference) but this is really cool. I like how the Pea matches the background and is centered while the plates aren't! 10.

I really like this shot - GREAT idea... The only thing is that I don´t find the green color cold at all BUT that is just my oppinion so I´ll give you an 8.... Good luck :o)

The left side of the picture is a little dark, but the composition of the photo is nicely set up.

I like the assymetric balance in the photograph. I also like the contrast in the picture.

I like the creativity

Like the composition. Green it always a little borderline as cool colours go but a refreshing contrast to all the blues here :)

Elegant & cool. Very well executed.
