I'd have toned-down the brightest highlights there in the center as it detracts from the "candle-lit" effect.

Nice set up, however I find the the light on the top gourd a bit harsh. 7

light is too bright on the one gourd for the rest of the picture.

I like the textures and shapes here. And it's very seasonal. BUT the one hotspot is distracting. Good job anyway though. Grayce

Neat idea, good job, looks like the camera fell a little short.

That red thing in the corner kills this picture. It really disturbs the continuity IMO. I really was groovin' on the top half, but when I got to the bottom half I sort of cringed. Sorry. Good luck...remember, I'm only one vote - Inspzil

Very pretty shot. Well done.

Interesting composition. The gourd on the upper left, (no idea what it's called) comes out too hot. The detail in the neck at the stem is completeluy gone. Perhaps if you had let more of the scene go darker, for more drama... 7
