Hi Andy,

It is a childrens chair I am sitting on.

ok the chair was used as i thought it would contrast nicely with the other colors, its the only white piece of furniture i have at home....and the whole thing would look odd if i just arranged everything flat on the table......however quite a number of people commented like that about the chair.....so in the future I would probably go find a small table instead...lesson learned :)

I like the chair. Used as a prop, it's clean, rather simple, provides good contrast, unifies the series, and is just quirky enough to lend character and distinction to the photos.

Those are some of the things I said I liked about it, too. I like the lines and balance of it, too. But still a little distracting.

I agree -- a table would have necessitated completely different arrangements because the viewer's mind would not accept fruit on the floor beneath the table. The chair, on the other hand, serves as a partitioning prop that helps to make a balanced composition.

I like the use of the chair as well because of the different levels of focus/areas of interest that you were able to capture.

There's a nice flow from top to bottom.

but I have to say I like this one the best, it just has a regal look to it

One thing to the picture of you pouring the lemonade is I would crop out just under your hand.. Other then that, the pics are very sharp, colorful, and I like them alot!

The chair does add to some of these lovely compositions (the colours and ideas are fabulous).
I find the chair DOES distract in photos #2 and #5. A cleaner background or tabletop would have worked better for these, or simply eliminate the chair and put them on the floor. Of course you'd have to get down low to shoot.

thanks guys appreciate all your comments.

one question why is the red wall "fringing" its just a painted red wall, i dont know why this happens, is it because it has texture?

I suspect there is a slight amount of glossiness in the paint and that is causing bit of glare and it also means that texture details will be more evident.

BTW, your lemonade series is having a worldwide influence on people's behavior. I was at the produce market today and saw some big beautiful juicy lemons and limes and could not resist buying a few. The limes that I bought were very dark green and quite juicy in addition to being very large. When I got home I fixed a big tall glass of lemon/limeade.

I had to get a couple pictures of the bright colors.

The second set of photos are quite random. Cracks me up every time I see them. I think #4 from the first set is the strongest of the 5 as far composition is concerned.
