[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Wasn't very happy with my recent post so I've taken a similar photo incorporating Daisy's suggestion of using grapes instead of an orange. This was taken using daylight from a window and some pp work to adjust brightness etc.

F4.5, 1/10 sec, ISO 100, 35 mm

Another ancient glories kind has been presented.... drinking grape's juice with no alcohol indeed
well done ROBERT SMITH

Hi Robert,
Beautiful image. I love the presence of the olives!~

Olá Robert,
It's missing a Roman Emperor.
Great one.

Hi Robert, I think this is a good example of hard study and good result. thx for sharing.

Hello Robert,
This is just beautiful. Some slight overexposure on the jug but what a pleasure to view. I have looked at the rest of your portfolio and I am impressed. Well done.

PS: I do not see the one with the orange. Did you delete it?


You have very well placed the grapes, the composition is very elegant and the reading is fluid.
The result has character. Interesting rendering of light and texture in bg.
This could be an excellent model for painting.
Superb !

Well done Bob,
A first class still life, it's not something I have tried

Yes Bob. Another beautiful piece of artwork.

Hi Robert,
The light green of the grapes seem to have a better match to your containers. Excellent layout and great management of light.

Hello Bob,
this is a flawless presentation of a nicely composed image,the exposure settings work well across the whole scene.
Very nicely done.
Regards Les.

Hi Robert,
Nice picture, like the black background and the fruit looks amazing.

A superb piece of composition any artist would be proud to have produced.

Hello Robert! Wonderful still life, amazing art work. Excellent composition. Fine background. Good exposure. Hi Fi. Well done!

Hi Robert, Nice set up with the ancient pot and cups. The olives are perfectly placed against the pots and cups. I like the harmony colors here. Regards

Hey Robert. This is really a different still life shot. I don't know why but it reminds me romance empire! and the sharpness of photo is the best.
