    Hi Mark,
    I like this picture it has a great feel to it. I think the background works very well, may I ask what the background is? It would suit a picture I'm working on.

    A think the simple composition and not being too busy works extremely well.
    Well done.

    No question that everything works very well, though I would prefer less foreground. I am also interested in knowing what the background material is, which works perfectly for this.

    Thanks Im glad you liked it.

    Jhon and Mike, I shot this on a sheet of paper that had a marble like pattern on it like you can see in the forground. Then in Post I blured the top half a bit with a gaussian blur the added this texture overlay to the top half to form the background.
    Post your email and Ill send you it if you like.

    Hi
    I too like this simple still life. The garlic cloves have a good colour and texture that with your choice of background make a Very nice B&W conversion.
    Might I add, thats high praise from Sharon who produces some wonderful still life images!
    Regards
    Phil
