    i need heavy critics on this one.
    the lighting is poor and the conditions are awefull.
    i'm really ashamed uploading it and showing it to you guys...

    what's wrong with the shot?
    what can be done to make it better?
    what's the best way to arrange the pieces?
    what else can i do to make it look better?

    here it is:

    and another one with flash:

    Well first off it's completely lacking in substance, but I'm sure a link can fix that. :twisted:

    I prefer the second shot with flash. The lighting coming from the right is a little harsh, maybe try diffusing it a little?

    Also, I'd like to see quite a bit of the empty space at the top cropped off.

    As it stands now, I don't think its a bad shot at all though :)

    The second shot is definately the better of the two. The only real problem I have is the rumpled background. A smooth white background would be less distracting and I would definately crop the top a little bit.

    I prefer that with flash... but all in all those are really similar photos and on the first sight I didnt see any difference. btw. nice collection :) If you need a friend to consume it, give me a call :)

    I like both of them. If forced to choose, I'd go with the first one purely as a matter of personal taste. I think the background is more definitive and adds to the interrest.
    On my monitor, the first image has a more accurate color temperature--unless your backdrop was really beige.
