    Hi, I made this image of a rather common object. Let me know what you think![​IMG]

    I think it's well captured. I would like to see a version with sufficient DoF to capture the foreground bristles, and some fill-light image lower right to brighten the dark shadow below the bottom of the bristles.

    I like it but it would have been better to get the bristles in focus. Lighter might have been better but i think the shadows give it character.

    Agreed with those above. Only thing I would have changed is how much is in focus. The bristles at the front in focus would have been better. I don't mind the shadow all that much in the front but to each his own :)
