This is quite lovely and I'm not at all surprised to learn it took home best of show in a print competition as well as the blue ribbon in the challenge. Great set-up, textures and tones, Mark. Congratulations.

I am guessing that this brilliant Yellow Still Life is the reason that I'm being tortured with the Yellow Still Life challenge that's current.

I blame you. And congratulate you.

This is brilliant.

Great work recently, seems to just get better and better! This is no exception, I get lost staring at the shadows of gold in the seamless background. Congrats.

Gray subjects for a still life. The colors and lines are dramatic.

Out of all the photographs in this challenge this has to be my favorite. Sticking with the challenge theme you pulled off a very nice toned photograph with texture, shapes, and lighting that is very interesting. I pick this for the blue and give a 10. Good luck in the challenge.

Love it. The pov is a tiny bit too high for me, and I would have cropped it VERY tight - to fill the frame - but this is stellar.

I liked this from the beginning and gave you an 8, but I've come back to bump your score because it appeals to me more and more. So, 9.

Great capture, wonderful textures and tones.

I think the placement of the objects really works well and they compliment each other, it is a very bold shot, taken well and I love the hardness of it. I have just started selecting my personal top 3, congrats on 2nd
