    I just needed bread sticks (sigh)

    Here's a still life for you C&C. I am very pleased with the way it came out I just think it needed two bread sticks hanging out of the basket in the upper right corner. Your thoughts please

    I just needed bread sticks (sigh)

    needs something coming out of the basket...perhaps the bottle which provided the vino.

    Agreed, a bottle would complete the photo nicely.

    I love the distortion through the wine. The detail in the basket is nice also.

    Yeah, that's what I thought too. I had thought bread sticks, but a bottle would have been perfect! I'll have to reshoot it, since I still have the fruit.

    I noted you didn't say you still had the wine.

    Hi Jeff,

    For me, perhaps a little too much contrast across the basket - i.e. too bright on the right/too dim on the left.

    Also, I like the magnifying effect of the filled wine glass and wonder whether something could have been positioned behind it to be 'made large'.

    Perhaps a little (5% or less) foreground table top.

    Good depth of field though, sharp where it needs to be.

    But if you'd put bread sticks in, I would only have eaten them

    But more seriously; yes, I suppose it is a bit empty in that corner.

    HTH,

    This something close to what you had in mind for the basket, Dave?

    I do think it's a lot more balanced this way, so thanks for the input.
