Looks like something a graphic artist might draw because it has such perfect complementing colors. I'm also with Karen and Rob - it's simple, it's bold, and it's very pleasing. Good job!

I agree with Kara... Great color contrast and line, and the judges seem to have an affinity for gooseneck lamps! This is a beautiful addition to that collection! (And your gallery is terrific!)

Tamera, just browsing your gallery, I just joined betterphoto this weekend, the colours in the thumbnail image just popped ! and the composition is great too, so I had to take a closer look. . . not suprised there has been so much discussion on this image.

You have a great eye ! Thanks for sharing.
