[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
HCMC formerly called Siagon has a rich French influence. Modern Vietnamese have a fine sense of style as shown in this simple setting in the historic Rex Hotel, one of many well known places to stay.

very nice Murray. the natural light is really nice. Maybe a little more dof for the could be nice also


This is a nice, simple, balcanced shot, Murray. Nice composition with the lines of the table edges breaking up the shot very well. Very lifelike image with good colours and exposure.

Vraiment magnifique!
Alors là, tout y est, le mood, les couleurs.
C'est une belle composition.

i like the simple composition here, especially with the lighting. very nice colours on the fruits and flowers. but i'd remove the hankie and the utensils on the saucer which i think is less relevant here; MHO
i imagine how the reflections on the table would look like with a polariser.

TFS & Happy New Year

NIce one murray simple and dramatic shot .nice job thumbs up

happy new year


Wonderfull settings indeed, Murray.
Excellent captured.!

Very interesting still-life shot here. The focus is really crisp and the lighting is very subtle.
If I were to do things differently (I always look at peoples photos like this), I might add a "touch" of saturation to make it "pop" and included more of the saucer and utencils in the front. I think by lowering your aperture, the foreground might have been a little more in focus. That's just my opinion though, the photo stands out well without my help though!
Well done,
