Thanks for the mod Jeff - I'm looking at it on another monitor and my image does look darker than I intended it to be.

This is extremely well set up and composed. The lighting really brings out the colours, textures and form.
As already said it benefits from a touch more light and I also think a bit more contrast helps. I have therefore offered a mod to address this whilst protecting the highlights with a layer mask. I also cleaned up the background and sharpened.
A very impressive shot and I hope you approve of my mod.

Beautifully done. I like the darkness in the original, the mysterious shadows in the folds of fabric create a sort of abstract woodland feel.

Wonderful light on this still life . So beautiful , could almost be an abstract . Just love the conker peeping out but the detail on the frilly edged backdrop is fantastic . xxx Smile

Beautiful autumnal tones on this still life, but what impresses me most is your ability to find an object (bowl) that not only complements the colours but also the shapes of the leaves, and then you place it as if it were a shell opening to reveal its secrets, wonderful.

So well thought out and taken - wish I had half your eye for this type of image. You have done some super work during my absence from EPZ over the last couple of months.

A very nice arrangement. That conker might even be worth a macro all of its own! Smile

It does need a bit of a sharpen and a bit more contrast as in Philo's mod. I'd also like to see either a bit more depth of field or a bit less. The bowl is caught between being properly sharp and properly out of focus and I think it needs to be one or the other. (Fully in focus would be the norm for a still-life but norms are made to be ignor(m)ed.)

You might also get some interesting shots of autumnal things inside that bowl, since it's essentially a gold reflector.

Thanks Dave - I'm sure I'm going to use the bowl again and that's a helpful suggestion
