thanks for the comments and fav's.....I went to the basement, found everything there except the apples, they were grown on my property, though. :D I used an old crate, an old window, cigar box and jug. Happened to catch a shadow on the right edge of the window, to try to make it look realistic, bounced light from left.

Oh and to the unchecked comment giver, I was not trying to make it look like anything from a mag..! I made this look as it did on my own, and I got it exactly how I pictured it. :)~

Great job. This looks like a French impressionist painting. My only minor critique is the somewhat awkward intersection of the top of the jug and window frame.

Lovely balance of both color and massing in the frame.

Beautiful still life. I can feel the dust and warmth of the sun.

Well it's vintage -- cigars, rye jug, um- apples. It's grainy, that's the texture of vintage. It's centered. I never know what to say on photos like these: I could leave you with the above, or I could tell you grow beyond that picture you've probably seen before in an ad or catalog. The one you're trying to imitate here. What would a more interesting perspective do for a photo like this? From an elevated position, perhaps, so you could really place these items out of the reach of a departing soul.

Does this make any sense?

This looks like one of those old posters you see hung in kitchens. Beautiful.
