Thanks, kelbelle! At this point I'm more encouraged by the comments than by rates :)

Thank you everyone for comments!

From whole series I selected two shots: this one and #1 (to answer jjstager2's question :) however #1 required some more editing and I didn't have enough time (I'm moving) and then was going to violate advanced editing limits anyway. I will post #1 some time in August - it has little bit different lighting - some will consider better, some - worse :)

I'm going to print #2 and see how it looks framed on the wall :)

Well, I should add that I put the vase and fruits (for photokariangel: good question ;) on both sides of white object in the middle! lol ;) on one of empty bookshelves and enjoying view even now :)

I cannot answer musichappens though: I don't want to exclude the fact you mentioned :)

See you all soon :)

Ditto bergiekat. And that red apple/pomegranite is so teasing and sensuous and velvety.

I think this is a spectacular idea, and like the colors. I wish there was just a little more light, however.

The lighting for this shot is so amazing. I love your colors and your creative shapes. The paper twists and turns makes for some beautiful texture. I think I could sit and stare at this for quite awhile.This meets the challenge very well. Beautiful job.

This picture actually struck me as odd. How do the vase and the fruit relate to one another, especially pertaining to the challenge. How does a vase, fruit, and paper relate? Exclude the fact that everything is made of paper and they are all in the same picture together.

#2? Where is #1? (does that make me look really dumb for asking?!) I like the texture and colors here but I think it might show a bit better with a slightly higher exposure value.

nice idea but a little too dark for my taste.

Funny. :) I'd like it better it they were positioned closer together, instead of looking like they don't want to catch anything from each other. You've captured the typical lighting of this type of scene, which is great, but a little more highlight would help make use of the full available dynamic range.

feels like a cave with a beam of light coming in. I like it. Detail is lost in left object but I think that helps with the feeling.

the lighting is really horrible. I'd have arranged them differently. not interesting enough to look at.
