This is a little different from my normal shots, I was asked to produce a still life image of wine and cheese. As this is my first attempt at still life any help would be much appreciated.

Don't think I can give you any help, but I do like the composition and the overall effect.

Everything is perfect, but I would try a plain background.

Excellent overall!

Funny Ken I was going to do a still life on these lines but with an empty glass because I found this poem to illustrate.
LOSS.
The day he moved out was terrible
That evening she went through hell,
His absense wasn't a problem
But the corkscrew had gone as well .

Your still life looks eatable and delicious and nice lighting .

Nicely composed, I'm not sure if the top of the bottle should be included or not.
PS if it was mine the wine would go, the grapes would go and the cheese would go ...MOULDY
eergh cheese.

Excellent, agree with Chris about the bottle top - to leave, to crop? - Still, desired effect achieved, makes the viewer want to step in and pour!

very crisp, clean shot ken, can't decide about the top of the bottle? Different from your usual style but works well Jane

Yummy, nice to see this in my lunch break, thanksSmile

Think I would like to see the glass either a little behind or in front of the bottle (if you don't mind me saying so) to balance the shape of the cheese, but it's still a great clean shot, very pleasing, click!

I see some great flowers...am going to click around them Smile
Superb!

Very well composed and photographed Ken. The food looks edible and the wine drinkable. I'd probably have included the top of the bottle.

Thank you all for your comments. I took a series of shots with Wine, Brandy and cheese. I was not sure if with the top was better than without. So my next upload will be with top.
Patricia, I have taken on board the the glass position and have made some changes, will upload on Weds. Thanks.
I will also try some plain backgrounds soon.
Thanks again.
Regards

Ken

With an apology to everyone... Ken... you commented on a Hibiscus image in my portfolio (which I missed until today!) and I have left a question for you. Don't know how to contact you other that like this - hence my apology to everyone else... If you could respond, it would be MOST appreciated. My e-mail in my portfolio details...
