    This is one of the worst photos I've ever seen. I hope you're ashamed of yourself!



    Haha just kidding bro, nice pic. You should post those other ones up as well.

    Like it - a little bleached out at the top but hey - that's digital! Try a more subdued light and a ring-flash.

    All in all - a damn sight better than my first few efforts!

    Erm, Spike (you got anything to do with this cactus? No? Ah well... you name...), what is a "ring-flash"?
    And Mal and Mackaveli - do you know each other, what with you coming from York, both of you?

    I liked it a lot specially the paterns. If you take little care of light and do a reshoot, it can be amazing

    I reckon the way to go light-wise would be to see if you can dim it a little bit, and make it more directional. For example, move it further from the window, take the shot at a different time of day, or consider using a normal desk lamp to get the light you want (make sure you adjust the white balance for a tungsten bulb though). Basically you want to be aiming to get a bit more shadow so that the texture is brought out a bit.
