Challenge: Black and White Still Life (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon
Date: Aug 10, 2010
Date Uploaded: Aug 10, 2010

Shot this real quick a couple of days before going out of town. I dont usually do still life photography and when I do I dont do it very well so this was a pleasant surprise.

The sunflower is fake. The background is a sheet of wallpaper taped to the wall and the little things on the stool are stones. I should probably go down into the studio to see if it is still setup. I cant remember if I cleaned up afterwards.

Congrats, Tim! Lovely setup. Congrats on your ribbon!

What are the bits of color? I can't figure it out.

Hey, I gave you a 6, that's as much as I gave the other two ribbons combined. Well done!

Now if only the next challenge was "Mould", you'd be all set up already :)

Congrats on the ribbon.

I didn.t vote on this challenge but this would have got 10 from me! If this is how you do still life badly, you will blow us out the water when you do it well!

I like this image; although, it looks like an artificial flower and I think detracts a bit; the wine and fruit would have done nicely alone.

I looked at all of the entries and this one is sooo what you would expect to see when you hear the words still life, but that is not why I think it is probably the best. I like, over all of the rest, the use of dark and white spaces. I like the extreme contrasts balanced in both larger and smaller areas. Good eye.

Nice tones.

the percent of perfect elements in putting this together is higher than the percent of the Shiraz. Very well done still life - excellent lighting.

Gorgeous! Perfectly composed and lit. Love all the different textures (fruits, flowers, glass, textile), and how the reflect or absorb light. Very well done, with the perfect bg. Front page.
