    Thanks, everyone, for the comments! I take the point about the background. I like shooting things as I find them, and a local painter often leaves her "tools" where they are when she finishes for the day. (We're in a tiny rural village where one can do that.) This was the best angle I could find at the time, but I'll post an out-take of an earlier day's "composition" that some may prefer.

    well i do like this one also, but have a little problem understanding choice of background. without a canvas, the reds and greens in the background seem out of place. maybe if the palette had some some of the background colors on it, it might make more sense to me. still, i like the presentation of the 'tools'. el

    Kill the background and you'd be there for my top spot. I just see no obvious connection. A plain white board or brown board would have worked just fine for a background.

    WOW! Looks like someone has fun when they paint ;-). GL.

    I really like the tool choice and composition, especially when it comes to the foreground items(tools). I also find no fault with the exposure or sharpness. My only real criticism is with the background. I find the flowers, in particular, a distraction that competes with the tools in the foreground. This is a case where a shallower depth of field that throws the background out of focus(with, hopefully some nice bokeh) would, I think, greatly enhance the images visual appeal. This is still one of my favorites, but not at the top of my list.
