A beautiful & colourful picture of the Mexican paper flowers arranged on a vase behind your metal fire guard in front your orange & gold coloured decorative Peppers growing in a pot wrapped in a piece of Hessian on a saucer. Beautiful composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus.

This is indeed colorful and in my opinion a fine entry for a contest like this. I like so much the darkness of the background because it makes the vibrant colored flowers stand out so well. It is also lovely the way the light is falling on them.

Your photo is also nice and sharp showing such clear and well defined details both in the flowers and the pepper plant up front, and the exposure is very good.

The way you have cropped the photo is working well, and the flowers and plant are perfectly centered. A truly lovely and well taken photo with a very good DOF, and I wish you luck with the contest.

This is a nice still life. The union of French an Mexican crafts works well. The combination of the subjects in a triangle fashion is intriguing. The colors of flowers and peppers work well together. The dark background emphasizes the arrangement.

Wonderful initial impression: this is a beautiful , colorful scene, the peppers growing in the pot, and the paper flowers are beautiful together ! The flowers look real! I like the yellow, orange and yellow tones of the peppers. This is well focused, clear to view, well exposed, colors and tones appear natural. Well composed, this takes the viewer right in front of your fireplace. Best wishes to you in the contest!

I grew some peppers that looked quite a bit like these. They were hot and flavorful. I think they were called "Thai Dragon". In any event they compliment these colorful paper flowers very nicely. Best of luck in the contest.

What a colourful shot this is. I love the arrangement of flowers, above the pepper plant. The fairly dark background emphasises the colours, as does the clear focus.

Such a beautiful center piece and positioning of that center piece. The vibrant colors of orange, pink, blue and yellow provide great color formation and contrast to the background. Again beautiful.
