I love the way in which the equipment is organized, the reflections and the framing which really makes the image sing.

border detracts from terrific tonality and even the composition as it draws the eye away from a lovely image

Beautifully low key. Good exposure and highlight/flare control. The dust on the lens (filter?) made me wipe my monitor. In this show, I find the reflections to be a bit distracting. They're so sharp and in some ways, keep me from being able to settle down and enjoy where the objects start/end.

I like your idea...It could be my monitor but the blacks seems to be blending. Regardless I still gave a good score...I don't want to rely on my monitor.
