    Freaky! I like the rumpled look of the paper, and it's a fun little image. :thumbup:

    I'm not a big fan of computerized coloring. You did well I think except for me the green is just a little "hot".

    Cool print! :D

    I knew you werent a computer color fan and thats okay. It isnt crupled paper it was nice an flat the background is screwy stucco wall. The negative is interesting because it give a reasonably sharp very low detail negative.

    Very much like an antique lens even more antique than the one i used.

    Ha! I should have inspected the background more closely. I like all of your still life images that I've seen so far. You have a way of assembling items of good visual interest - I admire it, cause I've hated every still life I've attempted. Mine always come off posed and trite to me. :oops:

    It a curse... I was taught photography by a painter. Everything I do is contrived. Weston is an icon to me the pepper thing you know.

    :lol: I do know! A blessing or a curse, who's to say? ;) I would think if you liked shooting still lifes, you had the best training possible.

    The truth on still life for me is that they are great... I can test a camera without leaving my house/studio...
