I really don't do much still life work at all, but while photographing a cattle drive, this caught my eye. I couldn't help myself, and had to shoot it. I can't imagine myself ever actually setting up these kind of shots with lighting, a tripod, studio, etc. But when something's right there in front of me that catches my eye like this, I think it's well worth taking a few minutes to shoot it. I'd appreciate any comments from folks who shoot still life regularly - especially those who shoot subjects "as found" with ambient light.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

It has potential but I think there is too much going on. I find my eyes just darting all over the picture instead of finding a true focus.
