This picture shows my views that life is still life even before birth. I used things that the baby in the picture will need before its arrival. Still life, to me, is a collection of like-themed items arranged to tell a story, as I have attempted to do here. I also added a border to help hem in the picture.

Thanks everyone for the technical tips. I didn't even think of the basic vs. pastel colors. I was visiting my parents' house and just used what I brought with me for the visit. I'm still learning the ins and outs of detailed photography. I tend to get a lot of what I would consider "lucky" shots. By the way, this was in no way intended to be a political statement. Rather, it was a statement of morality and the sacredness of life. I'm glad I have my two boys (my 4 month old son is the one in the ultrasound).

This image feels a little hot to my eye. The contrast of the white of the objects is super stark compared to the black background. Perhaps a softer background tone would be easier for my eye to absorb. The primary shades of red and blue feel out of place with the pastel pallet. I will ignore the polarizing political statement in order to give you a score solely based on the image...you're welcome ;)

The lighting spoils this for me,looks like direct flash and therefore has no modeling. Flash off the camera would have improved shot a lot in my view.
