    I appreciated all the comments thanks.
mrsawyer: Yes it is the shadow of the hat.

    I like this one! I'd like it even more it the yellowish tint in the upper right corner had not been there. Is that the shadow of the hat?

    Thanks all for your comments. I enjoyed reading them especially as to how I might have cropped it. For me this was a photo of a chair with the hat secondary so cutting off the legs of the chair would have been like cutting off my legs. I'm very keen on shapes. I did wonder if the whole subject should be further back into the photo but it was too late to try that.
I deliberately left the slight yellow in the right top corner. I removed it in a duplicate and the composition lost something.
Due to all your comments I have learnt so much in the last couple of years, so many thanks.

    I like the composition, although I think is moves a bit away from high key (IMO). Still, it's a favorite.

    A pretty and feminine image.

    I think you need to chop the legs off the chair about half way up and concentrate more attention on the superb hat and scarf combo. I like the variation in tone in the background - it works well. The hat and the top of the chair are beautifully set up and shot. Perfect exposure and lots of detail

    Very well composed and executed - a great example of high key!

    a high finisher as you have retained the colours of the props and not lost them in the background

    Very pleasing to the eye. Not sure how I feel about the yellow lighting in the corner. Not a big distraction. Nice composition.

    Yellowish background at top and left detract from otherwise very nice shot.

    Nice composition and not the worst subject. The chair is not an equal to the hat for me and I'm just not certain given your obvious technical skill, that you couldn't find a better angle to add even more interest. I think tighter on the hat here would have worked better - you don't need to show the whole chair and I'm not sure what it adds.
