I love the textures in this, Paul. Wonderful DOF too. In fact, all told, just a lovely image.

I really like this shot. It was my favorite of the batch of c's.

I don't think the cloth is very appealing in this image. I would have preferred something that looked more like a natural setting for a corkscrew, like a rich-looking table with a wine glass in the background.
