Now I need your help on this one ............. I can't decide whether I prefer the last upload which was very similar but the last one in the shoot, or this one which was the first set up, as you can see by the carrot tops being fresh; thank you all for your votes and C&Cs on the last one and would love to know which you prefer .............. all comments and critique much appreciated as ever!

This one just wins by a tiny margin for me, and like your previous one, I think it deserves a really elegant frame.

I think I prefer the other version, though both I feel aren't quite right...for me
Still life should be centred to the image... So, for me the parsley tops need to dissapear from both of the images they lead out of the frame and hence drag your eyes out of the frame. Also try to keep still life centrally on the table, todays upload shows the dark void to the righ of the table, to me a
Distraction...😉

The wilted tops don't worry me in v1 but I do prefer the closer grouping of this version.

I prefer this one, I think that arrangement is a little more pleasing to the eye. Love the texture in this one.

I too like this one.
And Lynne is right.
A slim, nicely toned mount, diffuse glass, within an elegant frame will enhance this beautifully

This version is better, for me, I like the richer saturated colour and the standing up parsley or carrot tops

Thanks for all the comments, they make interesting reading and I do accept the comment about the 'dark void', I can see what you mean ............ still life is so challenging from the set up point of view, which is one of the things I enjoy about it ............ again all comments much appreciated, so many thanks!!!

Definitely prefer this one - tighter composition with a more interesting placement. I'm not so bothered about the "void" - looking at the 17th century masters of still life there are voids all over the place! I think this is spot on.
