Re: Still life Tasks

I prefer the color - you did a nice job of matching the color of the top of the candle to the beverage - and the reflected light on the back wall.  Which all gets lost in the B&W version.

Is your monitor calibrated? Neither of the photos looks good.

Re: Still life Tasks

Lol the images have film rendering on it. The objective was to add hues and grain to an otherwise clinical image. So the colors are deliberately not accurate

Why would you want a concept image like this to look like reality?

Color. But make the tablecloth green, for better contrast of the items on it.

Re: Still life Tasks

I didn’t want more contrast in fact I have reduced contrast and saturation

this was a creative exercise using props in the house starting with C the colors that are important are red/orange and blue

This description is very helpful but it might be even more helpful to explain your intent per the above description in your original post  to ensure the feedback you get is more informative and relevant to your needs.😀

Re: Still life Tasks

this image has a composition issue as only one of the cats eyes shows

Either way it came first. It’s hard to do those tasks with what you already got
