try moving this farther away from the background so the bg is more blurred .. light your object maybe from behind. dont put it smack in the middl eof the frame, either. mag99

My door has been that! (Ajar... ok, it's not that funny.) Nice shadows.

need to have the object farther away from the background and iron the background

Why, yes it is. But a lovely jar at that. I love the color and the curved lines are great. I think it seems a slight bit tilted, and your backdrop could use some ironing. Other than that though, everything else is very nice. The focus is good, the framing/cropping are great. Lighting is wonderful. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

Pull this away from the background, and the DOF will blur away the ugliness of the sheet for you.

I would have ironed the backdrop, and then changed the white balance a little to get a whiter background, but this is a good looking jar. 7 nards656

I understand how hard it is to find a subject. I looked all over my house and finally decided on a rose. good lighting, but if a black sheet or cloth would have made the vase stand out more. Good job.

the background could of had less creases and probably better lit.. you have adhered to the challenge though so I'll go with a 5

It's a pretty jar with beautiful texture and colors. Your light just doesn't do enough to emphasize it. The shadow is a nice touch, but maybe your light could have been a little closer, or perhaps brighter.

I think the shadow is too strong, and You should have detached the jar from the background. Nothing really interesting to mee expects the reds and browns.

A Jar it is. But poorly lit it is too. Framinc ould be better. 3
