I knew I'd end up re-shooting this. First entry was quite a bit different.

Very happy with the finish. Thanks so much to those who helped me decide!

Though the color is lovely, the B&W most certainly doesn't suck. :-)

This shot has a certain smoothness to it. One of my favourites in the challenge. Congrats on the great finish.

Very nice image; not so centered would make it even better.

Nicely put together... and I'm a sucker for anything that has to do with music.

Setup and composition is excellent, as is lighting. Where's the candle in the holder?

I like the concept and the dramatic lighting. A little cluttered though, i think it would look better with fewer roses. 7

I wish I had your patience and intimate knowledge of lighting!

This is a nice composition, but I think there is a tad too much processing going on - a simpler processed image would have looked more appealing.

how routine. 6 ETA that sounded incredibly cold and cruel i'm sorry i should be more specific i was hoping to see some original work in this challenge i guess i'm in the camp of "tired of wine glasses and colored pencils" crew in DPC. this really was a well executed shot i thus scored it a 6 based on it's tech merits

I really like your tones in this, but to me it is just a bit over cluttered...Personally I like simplistic still life pictures...mind you I'm not saying this is bad...in comparison to the other...you at least got the general idea

Now this is a true still life photo, very nice composition, should rate well. 9
