    Great work.

    #1 is my favorite...what was your lighting set up for this one?
    #2 is a cool idea and it looks good but it feels like it's missing something.
    I'm not a fan of #3.
    #4 & #5 are both very good, I like them.

    i agree.... #1 is stunning! great work - like mike, i would love to know what the lighting setup was.
    In #3 with them looking away from eachother kind of makes them look 'distant' or 'disconnected' to me, maybe if they were facing inward it would be better??? just my opinion though!
    great work x

    nice series, IMO #4 should be cropped more to a 4x5 or Sq format, and with #5 I would try cloning the stool out, or get a few stools of diffrent colors

    Very very nice work. I especially like the first one and the grass one. All the shots have fantastic lighting.

    All of them are excellent in terms of composition, focus, detail, color, and lighting! Except I have to admit #3 is a little odd. It sort of looks like they are in a washing machine. #1 is my favorite, a true inspiration.

    Overall, great job.
