    Well deserved. The only surprise for me is how many didn't rank this no. 1.

    Congratulations NEAT. A well deserved first place. The Aussies did well. 1,2 and 3.

    Table looks familiar, nicely photographed. Only thing that bugs me is there seems to be a halo around the stem.

    @Anthony I thought someone would say that, about the Halo. Not to worry that's what happens when you push the contrast up. I didn't mind the haloing I thought it kind of added to the effect I was trying to achieve.

By the way the emotion is sadness the petals on the table are tears of despair. FYI I'm not sad at the moment :-)

    Evoking emotion is a difficult thing. I assume that this is attached to death. Which the most obvious emotion would be sadness... But until I have some connection to flower dying that makes me sad it is difficult for me to feel that emotion... All that said, this is done very well. Nicely lit, composed, the subject in terms of a dying beauty is selected well. The simplicity works. In my favorites. On a small note, I am a little bugged by the dark and halos around the stem and vase... But it is a small concern.

    This image evokes a certain degree of finality as well as sadness. It is well composed, conceived and carried out. High in my TT.

    Very nice black and white still life... good first impression lighting and focus. Like the way the light hits the curved stem just behind the flower base and the vase.

    pretty narrow depth of field but doesn't distract from the message. high in my favorites.

    Beautifully composed, with great use of DOF. You've managed to suggest emotion in a flower - well done.

    Worthy of 1x. The best by a mile. Looks like Neat but if not still very pro.
