What makes still life so beautiful to see for me is the way the artist puts a lot of thought into how each piece fits into the picture, the way things get moved around until it all fits perfectly together. The use of textures, lighting, layout, colors, all come into play to make this a work of art my friend. Incredible look.
Have a great weekend.

your stills always continue to amaze me, they are nothing short of OUT-BLOODY-STANDING!!! All kidding aside you are the photography equivalent of Giorgio Morandi of painting stills. You obviously create the shot in your mind, then let us all see that in your work. I truly hope to see you get a showing of your own in a gallery one day. You are to stills what Ansel Adams was to wild life.
