Fun. Lovely detail of the paint job on the larger doll. Wish I could see more the the dolls - a whole line up as they get smaller and smaller? Why stop at two? The yellow background clashes a little with the gold and I wish the lighting were less flat.

off center yes but why 5

These are certainly off center, and the yellow of the background goes with the yellow in the objects themselves. I'm not sure why I'm only lukewarm to this shot. It may be that the photo is so straightforward. Perhaps I can't see how you've interpreted these objects in any way. It looks like you just took a picture of them? Does that make sense? Anyway, darker lighting, or less direct lighting might help; you might try experimenting. The off center composition does add some interest, and seems to add an artistic flair rather than accomplishing what off center usually does: imply that there is more beyond the frame of the picture. Hmmm. Still, good clarity and focus, and depth of field works very well for me. Good luck!

Nice even lighting. I wonder if the second figurine would have looked better over on the right side of the shot, to balance the picture. 6

technically it seems fine, but doesn't really grab me in any way. there's nothing wrong with it...I just can't find what's right either. Maybe the yellow background is too overpowering? not sure. your lighting is the strength in this image.

Certainly an interesting subject here. I don't really like the BG colour to be honest... since the yellow is quite predominant I might have gone for the use of blue instead.. but then I dont know what resources you had to work with, and maybe I just like blue more. Good luck with it anyway.

I like the simplicity! I'm honestly not crazy about the background color (maybe black would have been more dramatic?) but I still like this a lot.
