Nice color tones in this shot. Reminds of the stuff in my own basement.

This is my favorite image of the challenge. The selection of props and location is impeccable. Your command over the use of light makes this photograph outstanding. The shadows seem perfect and the highlights outstanding.Without proper placement and use of light the delicate detail within the shadows and highlights could easily be lost. You have managed to not only preserve this detail but to use it to your advantage through the placement of the props. The combinations of hues and objects fit like a hand in a glove. Not many photographers understand how to assemble proper props to create a still life with impact but you have displayed great command of that skill with this image. Congratulations on your submission - 10 - RLS

Beautiful. Love the colours in this. Only complaint would be that the main subject is too centered vertically! Moving it towards the bottom of the frame would improve it for me.

Very nice picture. I think the rusty item at the bottom contrasting with the cast of light on the dried flowers is very good.

This is a really nice shot, the colours and lighting are great... but there it seems like there are 3 main subjects and I'm just not getting an off-centred feeling from this shot (sorry). Good luck with it all the same.

I love the muted tones here, and the lighting is terrific. Since the whole photo is the subject, it might be argued that it is impossible for you to have an off center subject! but I love it! 9

I like this a lot! I can almost smell that "musty basement smell" as I look at this. Great work.
