    Thanks for the positive critiques - it's how we learn and improve.

    I think AC has a point. A change in lighting might have helped this one. The paper is plentiful and rich so there is nothing wrong with the subject matter and the background is clean.

    Nicely shot, great color, but though there's plenty of paper, all of the pattern here distracts me somewhat from the theme.

    Thanks for commenting everyone. I must admit I was a bit disappointed in the result I achieved with this shot. It took a while to set it up in the sunshine, and I did try different arrangements, portrait, landscape, low level and high level perspectives, sun, shade, dark background and white. Thanks for the suggestions Anthony - I'll have to try them on my next still life.

    Lovely subject. Very short exposure! Was this taken in the sunshine? In my favs.

    I get where you were going with the whole happy birthday and paper theme. I am not really a fan of these arranged images..... don't get me wrong, I have nothing against creating a photograph through arrangement. What I mean is this is almost too arranged... Technically the image is fine, but it lacks impact. This image almost reminds me of a image I would find in a stationary store catalogue. I guess if that is what you were going for, this is spot on, but I imagine that the happy birthday theme in the paper category should invoke the "happy" feeling of ripping open the presents from their wrapping. Ok maybe not as dramatic as that but hopefully you understand where I am going. I feel less in this image would have been better. Losing the paper bag, changing to landscape, moving in closer and maybe dropping the aperture. This would have brought emphasis to foreground items, maybe having the paper cuttings on the third line and in focus would have highlighted their interesting shapes and shadows. Moving the light source to the side and down slightly would have created longer and more interesting shadows.

    Great idea, and so many different paper products. The colours complement each other in a well composed and well lit shot.

    Interesting paper. Lighting appears a little flat.
