I'm guessing this is maybe an AJHopp photo? (or it at least looks like one) The dark tones and careful arrangement of items make me think this. Beautiful scene :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Artfully arranged and perfectly lit. The backdrop echoes the oxidation on the watering can nicely. Nothing is perfect or shiny or "popping" and that's as it should be; this image invites exploration and appreciation. Easily my favorite in the challenge :-).

Reminds me of some of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' AJHopp's floral still lifes (and that is a compliment 'cuz I love them!).

Nicely done with the watering can and pruning shears...very complimentary for this still life!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Timeless, classic, beautifully executed. The soft and low lighting, allowing for some shadows to form, really works very well. Love it!

Amy/AJ?... you win! ;)
Really like the soft look and color. The background here is one I've tried to find but haven't. All the elements look very much in place and just wonderfully composed. Also like that really subtle hint of glow. Looks great!
