A very nice looking b/w shot. Only nitpick is that the beans look too black, almost as if they're not there and it's one big black mass. I see some detail in the front beans, just would've liked to see a bit more. Some playing with Curves or Shadows/Higlights in Photoshop could've helped bring out more of the detail in the shadows. Not too much, just a bit so as not to make the image look too busy.
