The good wife takes us to lunch used the natural lighting. This is a large Wall decoration in a local Chinese Resturaunt. I liked the subjects on display thinking it would fit this challenge.

This is an interesting looking fan, I am thinking the main problem with this photo is the background IMO, as is I am left wondering why you chose to take a picture of a fan on a wall. When I set up a photograph I try to look at the picture as a whole, not just the subject, the background must add to the photo not detract. Try making a grouping of similar still life objects like propping it in front of a bonsai tree, or have a model hold the fan in front of her face, then you still showcase your beautiful fan, but the picture on a whole becomes much more interesting.

It's rather a flat image due to the lack of range in tones. Also I think a hand holding the fan would have added a lot to the image!

Very nice range of tone in this.
