Your stills continue to BLOW me away! It is quite obvious you "see the shot" before anything is done at all! You do a great job from concept/idea,~set-up,~shutter snap!

Fantastic Dave! You should set up sales in town of just your still lifes, they are awesome. The opened net bag, the half peeled orange...you have that special touch for sure!
