Hi Herman,

This is a wonderful still life. I have to wonder if the grain is intentional, or a function of a small photo chip. They do show up more in the reflections ( a great image, by the way) and they do differentiate the reflection from the objects. The composition is really nice. Have a good weekend.

Pretty scene - but it needs a bit more space around the items, especially on the left edge where the teapot touches the edge of the frame.....

Looks good on the black bg

Hi Herman.

I took the liberty to upload a pair of modifications of your first image as I thought it was rather grainy and lacked any umph. The first mod was a simple enough job really, nothing to difficult, just removed the noise and increased the colours slightly. The second one included increasing the canvas size and taking out a few blemishes using the Spot Healing Too.

Hope you approve.

Regards Nathan Grin
