    I honestly hardly no squat about photography but I would enjoy this photo more if the shadow on the left corner was... not there. I do like it though.

    i like the contrast and I think the concept you had in mind was good but this is not the best end result try it again try newer angles or just takes a step back to make a real impact and subject

    lonewolf, that has nothing to do with this thread. If you have questions for Sunny, I'd suggest PMing her directly.

    For the record though, I got an XSI when I started and regretted the purchase 6 months later. I should of picked up the 40D.

    Compositionally, this seems to be about light, shadow, lines, and shapes. In that regard, I don't like the camera tilt (but that is a HUGE personal bias... I think that camera tilting is over-used, usually done in an attempt to be "artistic" but without really having a reason past that, and it RARELY adds to a composition). Also, more texture and detail in the table as well as coming in on the framing/cropping to shrink that deep shadow in the lower left would have helped as well.
