An interesting angle on this shot GJC! Would like to see the bannister further to the left so that although still visible does not dominate the frame. After all, from the title it is the offerings that are the focus.... IMHO ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks for the visit and the thoughtful comment. Perhaps I should have chosen a different title because the focus here is the interplay of light and shadow, and the way the round shapes repeat in the jars and in the bannister. But I appreciate the considerate advice.
Beautiful composition, and arrangement of dark and lights. I also love the repeating patterns of the jars- so orderly and perfect! Just beautiful!

Enchanting! Such beautiful interplay of forms and light! Great catch!
Wish you a happy weekend in advance! See you next week!:-)

Oh, I love the contrast here. My eyes move from the dark foreground immediately to the light background. Well done!

The shapes and arrangement work wonderfully here . . love the tones and restricted, harmonized color, too

I like the color combination and the various round shapes. I want to ask you what is in those white urns, but I think I know what they are.

@Howard F.: Thanks for the visit and the comment. The contents of the jars is probably ... well, nothing actually, but they are supposed to have Japanese rice wine (sake; お酒) in them.
You will just have to go back for more studies : ] best...jerry

Fantastic tones and contrast!

I find it interesting how some get caught up in the subject as if it were an advertising campaign for said subject, and wish to present it to its best advantage. However in fine art as opposed to commercial art, (and I am not putting down commercial art some of which is fantastic) the motivation is very different. It is an exploration of aesthetic objectives where the subject is secondary and incidental in most cases. I love your use of dark space. I have seen others try to do what you seem to do so naturally and their dark areas float above the image and do not integrate into the composition. Yours are amazing for their rightness and balance and integration. Lovely composition.

Interesting! The colours and shape almost reminds me of chess (hope i didn't offend!). And the contrast between the wonderful lighting on the top right corner and the darkness on the bottom left brings so much emotions and elegance! love!
