Critique Club critique by Tim Jensen.

This is a pretty interesting photo and there are many things that I like about it. The first thing that jumped out at me was the nice vivid colors of the brushes plus the textured background. I also enjoy the simple but effective composition. Unfortunately your use of lighting has caused the brush ends to get lost among the background. This could be helped by aiming your light source at the brush ends to highlight that part and if you were to lower your light you could also create some nice shadows that would add even more interest. Always try to remember to experiment a lot with the positioning of your lights. One reason is that they can photograph much different than you see with your eyes alone.

This meets the challenge very well and you clearly executed it very well by keeping it sharp and clean. The border looks good although I think instead of the light blue to match the color in the background I would have chosen the green color that is on the brush. This links the border to the main subject and not the secondary element.

All in all this is a pretty solid photo. Now, about that title....

I like the background here.The brushes seem washed, though. Nice composition and arrangement.

Nice colors and well exposed. I don't think the back ground adds to the strength of th ebrushes. Did you try white?
